LOL does that make sense ,
On some of the bags i see some of the outer nice fabric goes down into the inside of the bag. I think this looks really neat and sometimes can make the bag.
But for the life of me i can't work out how to do it, I have some nice fabric but wouldn't want to waste it

thanks in advance

You could do it one of two ways:

1.  Cut your outside fabric taller than your inside fabric.  After sewing the to seam and turning, when you pushing your lining inside, some of the outside fabric will go with it.  Top stitch when it folds over.  How much taller you cut the outside fabric will affect how much goes inside.

2.  Make your inside piece actually made of the 2 different fabrics.  When cutting, just be sure to include your seam allowance for sewing the two pieces together to make it one.  If your lining (2 pieces sewn together) and outside pieces end up different sizes, trim one or the other to make them the same, then proceed with your bag.




Until you find something worth dying for, you're not really living.
