I'm not sure how, I dont have the pattern, but I have made a bag like that. You could use bias tape and sew that around the edges, I know it wouldn't be as neat-o looking, but if you aren't satisfied with it, and wan't quick fix it, that might work?

Do you have a pic of the purse you made?  I've made 2 and they came out alright.  I think the most important thing is to make sure your cutting and template lines are perfectly straight and even.

Also, maybe ironing the creases will help.

I say just follow the directions.  I laid both pieces down and did them together.  It worked pretty well for me.  Best of luck!
