    1. Hola Nancy, los cordones deben medir lo mismo. Se pasan haciendo como si fueran dos U. Tú cuenta con que lo redondo de la U es lo que cierra arriba en cada lado de la mochila. En cambio los extremos son los que se cosen por dentro en la base de la mochila. Si piensas cómo tienen que cerrar los cordones, la mochila es muy fácil. Imagina cuando estiras los cordones para que quede cerrada y lo entenderás.
