first of all; that's such a beautiful bag!

second; i'm doing a bag similar to that one with the same kind of handles the problem is that i don't know what to do first. could you help me?
i've started by doing "two bags". one for the lining and on for the outside. I don't know if that's the right way to start at all but hopefully it is. anyway, what am I suppose to do now and did i do right by starting two sew the linging and the bag separetly?

Thanks a bunch, Linda

yes the lining and the bag should be put together seperately and then sewn together.  as for the handles, those should be done before you sew the bag pieces together.  because i used a copywritten pattern i don't feel comfortable going into the specifics of exactly how the bag was made, but here are some tips:

- you need to use interfacing (fuseable) on the exterior of the bag and on the top of the bag lining.  it adds support for the handles.
-cut the handles out after you add the interfacing to the fabric, it helps cut down the freying a bit
-sew the handle hems (can't seem to find the right word today, but the part that's folded over from your cutting the hole) down in both the lining and the bag before you put the rest of the bag together
-be very exact on the handles so they match (something i didn't quite do in this bag which caused me HUGE headaches during the final construction)

hope this helps.

I love you. And not, not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. I love you. Very, very simple, very truly. You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being.

I noticed that the pattern used was actually "Mad Pad" if anyone tries to find the same pattern...Sublime also has a pattern entitled "Mode Mod". I was momentarily confused and wanted to help anyone that might get confused like myself. Nevertheless, I think the purse itself is aptly named "mod".

That is a supergood bag!
