1. If you are making a bowling style bag that is larger and you want the lining to stay put on the upper curved part, how would you go about tacking it in place so it did not show on the outside?

2. If you are putting a zipper in the top of your bag, and you want to line the inside of it, how do you do this? I thought i saw a tut for this, but now i can't find it.


Thanks for your help!

1.  I would tack in the ditch--thread a needle and just take a stitch or two every so often (very small) in the seam.

2.  I've been experimenting with this, and I like to sew the placket lining to the main lining before you put the lining into your bag and turn and then tack down your placket edges just beside the zipper teeth.  You'd need to iron your placket lining edges enough so that they clear the zipper teeth before sewing it in, though.
