this was meant to be made into a long skirt, but last night i pulled it out from the depths of my closet and realized it made an ugly skirt and a better bag and i closed up the bottom.
so now i have a couple of questions.
1) how does one go about sewing a fabric lining onto knitting. will a machine rip it up?
2) i'm planning on making thick handles of icord around cotton rope to prevent stretchage. i'm stumped on how to attach them to the bag without stretching the bag itself. maybe doing two layers of lining fabric and sewing it to the inner one?
3) my biggest question, (maybe you can see this in the picture) i did a longtail cast-on and knit for 5 rows, purled for 1 row, and knit for 5 more rows with the intention of putting in an elastic waistband, folding it over and closing it up. anyone know of how i can close it up?
hopefully this makes sense.
