Place the packaged wicks, oriented as shown, into the very bottom of the bag. Lay them on top of each other. Their orientation lengthwise as shown is very important.
Insert your writing kit in the same manner as you did the spare wicks.
This photo illustrates the shape the bag is taking. Make sure you place the items as far into the bottom as they will go.
Place the sewing kit into the bag.
Place the scissors in the bag, lengthwise as shown.
Place the screw driver in the bag, lengthwise as shown.
Place the pliers in the bag, lengthwise as shown.
Place your container of spare parts into the bag, lengthwise. This spare parts container has wire, screws, cloth pieces, wax, leather, and any spare parts necessary for repairing torches and flags.
Wipe off the flame shields so they are clean. Place both together and place in the bag behind the notebook (between the notebook and the outside wall of the canvas bag).

Place your glasses or telescope into a protective bag and place into your carrying bag.
|Place the glasses lengthwise in the bag.|
Place your code wheels into the bag. If you lay them in flat side down, use something to protect them from getting mis-shaped. Otherwise, place them flat side against the notebook between the glasses and notebook.
Place a clean rag into your bag to protect the other contents from the wind shields and funnel used with the torches.
Place your wind shields and funnel in the bag (so you could see, we're showing the contents without the rag).
If you have room, place the stakes in the bag lengthwise. You can also fit the stakes in the bag pointed side up down the side of the bag. (rounded side down on the bottom so you don't wear a hole in the bag).
