Line up the Velcro strips and sew the Velcro in by whatever method you want.

I had my machine handy so I used it!

Sew all around the entire Velcro strip, not just the top or the bottom of the strip. Remember, you want the bike light to be secure!

Step 6: Stuff the Nose and Place the Light Inside
