Now we construct the back panel. I found after some experimentation that the light from the fiber optics cable showed through one layer of black fabric, and that I needed two layers to completely obscure the light. Furthermore, I wanted to hide the fabric cable conduit from the back of the panel. So I used three layers of fabric to make the back panel - that is, I cut out the pattern piece three times. I then sewed two of the layers together, right sides together, around the outside seams. I also stitched across where the conduit seam is, to close off that piece, leaving a couple of centimeters open on each end of the conduit seam so I could pass the fiber optics cable around into the panel scene area. I then sewed the third piece of fabric to the now combined cabling sheets, leaving the sides open from about half way down. Shown is the finished back panel - the front flap is turned up, showing the back panel and the fiber optic conduit sewn along the bottom.
