I just finished a messenger bag w/ gussetts...or...w/e they're called, lol. But i'm not fully satisfied. I'm still going to carry it around school because i hate throwing away things before i actually use them--but i just have some questions because i desperately want to make a new one.
- When you pull the bag through the whole in the lining at the last step, how do you patch it up so that the seams are almost invisible? I don't think theres a way it can actually be inside like all the others, but tricks to making it look nice would be appreciated. Mine is very visible and i'm very frustrated with it.
- My lining is always too big for the bag, even though i cut it exactly the same size as the exterior fabric. Should i make it like an inch smaller or something?
Thanks for reading this. Answer if you can.
