Great bag! I love the stiffness of it. When making the bag how did you turn it? When I turn stuff with stiff interfacing it leaves the fabric sorta wrinkly and even ironing doesn't alleviate the wrinkles.  Thanks!

Thank you everyone for all your sweet comments!

Great bag! I love the stiffness of it. When making the bag how did you turn it? When I turn stuff with stiff interfacing it leaves the fabric sorta wrinkly and even ironing doesn't alleviate the wrinkles.  Thanks!

Thank you! I turn it out along the top edge. I've tried turning it out by leaving a hole in the lining but didn't like how that turned out. As far as the wrinkling goes, are you using very very stiff interfacing? You may want to go with something that's not quite as stiff. The wrinkling is caused by the interfacing being too stiff for your fabric. OR you could try to leave a larger hole while you turn it out so there is less pulling. Other than that, you could always try to sew the bag without turning it out. I do that sometimes. It's a lot harder, but you basically pin the bag together like it would be if it was finished but turn the top of the bag and lining down and top stitch. Hope that helps!

It was so easy. It took about 2 hours tops. I spent more time fiddling with the interfacing Smiley

Thank you! It's an iron on transfer. I designed the label I wanted using Photoshop. Then I copied it into Word and then duplicated it several times on the same page. Then my printer has an iron on transfer option when I load it that will autoamtically print it backwards. Just insert the iron on paper and print. I usually do it on pieces of fabric or ribbon. I got the idea from the tutorial here on craftster:
