What a great bag.  I really love the fabric that you lined the bag with.  Smiley

It was such a pain wasn't it! I made it not too long ago...didn't break my machine, just my heart XD

And she's right, the instructions aren't hard, it's just tough work, and I had a bit of trouble with the piping, but I've only been sewing a couple of months, so someone who knows what they're doing would have much better luck

The construction looks much better than mine lol

Contrivant, I think your construction looks good! You were smarter than I was and picked a busy pattern for your exterior. I was so frustrated with how my edges were turning out on the bottom that I hand sewed the piping on the outside to hide the yuck parts.

Did you find the lining a little big for the bag? If I make it again I would definitely shrink the lining pieces a little, or maybe increase the seam allowance or something. The lining just seems a little bulky in there for me. Doesn't lay as smoothly as I'd like. Ah well, we all see imperfections in our own projects a little too much...

I had the same problem at the bottom!!  If I make it again in the future, I might sew the piping a bit further in on the bottom and when I attach it give a bit more allowance because I had a problem where the fusible fleece kept peeking at the corners, so I'd have to seam rip and do it again...SO FRUSTRATING!

And yes, the lining is much too big for the bag, I agree!  Usually that's not the case with AB's bags, or I didn't find it so with the Frenchy, at least...and I don't like those pockets she does either, next time I may just do zippered pockets now that I'm learning that mess.

I love the combination of fabrics.  They work really well together.  Great work!
