hey, I've only been knitting a few months, so I'm not too confident when it comes to finishing yet.
I have just knit my sister a bag(my own design, just simple) but as I knit with straight needles, it needs seeming along the base and one side. I had presumed I would just seam the edges like with gloves and a hat I have made. Now I'm at that point I'm not too sure, I'm thinking it may need more support.

So, my question is, can I seam it normally then machine sew it around. Or is this a big no no

thank you in advance Cheesy

thanks for your reply and the link, I already use that article to help me in my seaming Cheesy

What I mean is, after I have seamed it, could I then sew it maybe a half an inch in providing a stronger seam.. I just don't want the bag to fall apart.

I'll seam it the normal way and see how that goes.

Thanks anyway Cheesy
