I can't figure out how to sew the lining into the bag making a nice edge...

i usualy fold over each and iron and then sew them together. it takes some practice to get it to look really nice, but ironing is the key.

I think I'm having a hard time understanding how if you sew the lining and sew the outside of the bag whilst the handles are already sewn... how in the world do you pull it through w/o the handles getting lost inside the bag?  I know that the top is open but this has been my struggle.  For some reason it's like one of those puzzle rings to me.  I just can't wrap my head around it.

the top is open, so it works! when i first can up with the idea of this bag it took me awhile to figure out the construction, but it works. good luck!

i ironed it on to the outer fabric before i did the cut out handle part.

hey these look really cool I love them!

could you pretty please answer a question for me, though?
I've been looking into getting a badge a minit and I was wondering if you have to use like special paper to make the buttons or if you can use anything?

again, these rock. -kate

no special paper is required. regular printer paper works fine. also i usually cut pictures from magazines. if the paper is really thin it might not cut right. most paper works though.
good luck!

thanks for everyone's advice.
ive been playing around with nvu. its a cool program and its helping me learn html and stuff.
the only problem that im coming across now is trying to work in the buying part of the site. the host that i have has two different ecommerce options, but both of them are confussing. i guess i haven't spent enough time playing around with it yet. what does everyone else use for ecommerce?

did u put clear plastic on the top ones?? cuz they look shiny...also did the clear plastic stuff come with your badge-a-minit??? luv the fabric ones!!!

thanks a bunch! yes, there is a clear plastic layer on the ones that aren't made with fabric. they come with the other button supplies  (not necessarily the machine).

my personal opinion is that i dont like to have to do a lot of clicking. but i do like big pictures. so maybe have the option for bigger pictures, but leave all the items on the same page.

thanks for everyones replies and suggestions.

i was going to go buy a book, but there was so many i wasn't really sure of what to buy.
i had done a few sites using the WYSIWYG editors when i was in high school. but now I'm looking for something a little more professional.
i guess I'm just being impatient, i want the site done now and i wanted it to look amazing.

once i start I'm sure ill have specific problems, so ill know where to ask! =)

I use frontpage, it's pretty easy to use and no html needed, it does help to know it if you have to fix any kinks but it's an overall easy program.

i was thinking about something like that. i dont have front page on my current computer, but i know that there is a program just like it that you can download for free, i just need to find it.
thanks for your input =)
