jennyleigh-

These are awesome! I love your fabric choices, too! I had toyed with the idea of making these as gifts for my friends' daughters, but I chickened out. I made another bag instead (or I'm in the process of making them- they are all cut out- now I just need to sew them!), but I'm only making 7.

But, you've inspired me to try to make a lined pyramid bag. My first one was un-lined and I had some troubles with that (probably didn't help that I was sick and under the influence of cold medicine at the time Cheesy !)

I'll definitely have to re-visit the pyramid bags as a project!

Thanks!  I had fun making these.  When things slow down after Christmas I may attempt to make some mini versions.

Can you believe the only thing I had to buy for these was the mini biner clips?  I even had zippers on hand from a huge lot I bought on ebay.  The fabric was in my stash and came from the $1 table at Wally World.

I've been making small armies of these. They are usually pretty tiny, and I put them inside of purses that I've made for friends. I think they work well for a small pouch for lip balm, tampons, change, etc.

I've also figured out a super fast and easy way to do a lined version. I can crank a bunch out pretty quickly.

Here are some of the ones I've done recently (including some Halloween-themed ones from October):

Hey, to those of you who have made this with a lining, do the two seams show inside? After sewing the zipper sandwich-style, in other words, do you sew across the tops of the two fabrics, know-wut-I-mean?

I made a couple, without even trying to put in a liner. The one on the left was my test attempt -- you know how sometimes you can read something as many times as you want, but it simply won't make sense until you actually DO it? The instructions are super-simple, but I really did need to see it in three dimensions. I used a light interfacing to help give it body. Worked nicely.

Then I made the one I really wanted, which is the black one on the right. I used marine vinyl for the body, which is heavy enough to stand easily on its own. Did a little decorative red topstitching and added mother of pearl studs which I just received from the supplies swap (thanks, Laughing Lark!). The wrist strap is cannibalized from a $3 resale purse. (I was wearing an all red and black outfit.)

here's a close-up of one of mine:


none of the seams show, except one tiny little corner where i turned it right-side-out and did a tiny bit of topstitching on the inside lining. the zippers don't have any topstitching on them, either.

Cascioli, I meant on the inside. All the seams are contained? I haven't tried it, but I guess I'm a little thornw off because the outer and inner are one piece each instead of two like you'd normally have with a lined zippered pouch.

ah, sorry. I do have one tiny spot inside where I turned everything right-side-out where you can see a tiny bit of seam (less than 1"), but it's in a corner, so it's not very noticable.

Gotcha. I think I either need someone to give me a quick walk-through on how to do a lining on this bag or... just do it myself. Something isn't coming together in my brain.

I haven't made one yet but someone on the boards mentioned using bias tape  to cover the inside seams. I think that sounds like a neat and quick way to give it a lining.HTH
