Homemade bug screens

I finished my first bug screen for one of the side barn doors. Itís made with a slightly strechable screen material, bias tape for the edge and rare earth magnets sewn into the bias tape edging. When packed away, it packs down to a ball about the size of a baseball.

I like that solution for the pop out windows. Where did you get the material?

Thank you 86Scotty!

Thank you daveb! Being able to pack them small was one of the main reasons I ended up making my own window coverings and now bug screens!

They look great! If you decide to make anymore, I would purchase a set.

These look great. I currently haphazardly magnet some stiffer pieces of screen on the outside but it still lets a few bugs in. I'm trying to decide if I should make something along these lines or do the interior screens that a few others have tried. Do you have a link for the flexible screen mesh you're using?
