With the lining side facing you, turn the bottom of the case up 5 1/2”, forming a pocket.

Open up one end of the bias tape and fold it under 3/8”. Press this fold. Starting at one corner of the case, wrap the bias tape around the perimeter of the case, encasing the cut edges. When you get to the other corner, cut the bias tape 3/8” longer than needed. Open this end and fold under 3/8” before wrapping it around the remaining case edge. Be sure to wrap the bias tape securely around all layers.
Edge-stitch the bias tape in place, along the inner edge. This will not only give a clean finish to the edges of the case, it will also secure the side seams.
