I just finished my first bag! I used a fabric that my mom gave me. When I was little, I had a pillowcase of the exact same fabric. I have always hated it, it's so old fashioned! I decided to deal with this childhood trauma by turning the fabric into an experiment bag, with a zillion mistakes. that'll show them!
I'm not going to show you the inside since I made a VERY feeble attempt to insert a zipper pocket.
i know this is an old thread, but i was wondering if someone could help me out...
When i attached the lining to the bag according to instructions, it seemed like my straps and cover flap got "swallowed" by the lining, and disappeared from the outside of the bag... so when i pulled it through they were gone. what did I do wrong / how can I fix this?
*figures my first post ever would be cuz I screwed something up and had to ask how to fix it... lol*
Thanks in advance!
Plen, that happened to me as well!
I turned the whole thing inside out and was like: erm...didn't I attach a flap? I just ripped the lining and the outside fabric apart and started again, but now that it's fixed I don't remember anymore how I did it. Good luck!
(edit 5 minutes later): I think you should not put the flap and the straps inside the outer bag at the point where you put the outer bag in the lining bag, but leave them in between the two bags. Then you can pull everything out later.
