Hello again,
Two posts in one day, I know.lol. So I took Penlowe's advise in my other post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=245232.0;topicseen)were I had a question about the lining because I wasnt sure how to do it. Anyhow, I went over to the tutorials and took a closer look at tutorials and got some ideas from there.. so what I ended up doing was taking the same fabric (my cheap practice fabric) and decided to try the bag/purse thing again. Heres what I ended up with. Oh and I decided to add a flower I crocheted a long time back. So there





Not too bad.. I still need a lot of practice.



Im proud of it considering its my second attempt for the day.
THANK YOU!!!!!!

p.s. Im open to any more suggestions, critics and so on Wink

I didn't reread the other thread, but just in case no one has said this:

To make a lining, simply make another exact copy of the outside of your bag. (Size, shape, seams, the bottom, etc.) You can add pockets, pencil holders, etc. if you want as well. Then, when you're sewing bag to lining, turn both inside out, and stack your stuff like this: BAG, HANDLE, LINING. Make sure the handle isn't twisted. Pin, and sew around leaving a small opening to turn. Make sure to double/backstitch the area around the hole, as it will be taking quite a beating.

Then just turn the bag, turn the raw edges in, (like you would a pillow) and stitch once or twice around the whole of the top. Easy cheesy. It gets much easier with practice, and pretty soon it will be second nature. (Though, if you're using a stiff interfacing for your bag, you may want to consider ironing down a hem on the top of each piece and instead of sewing it inside out, just pin them together along the ironed hem. Smiley I can try to whip something up in paint if you need a visual. lol.)

For your second attempt, it doesn't look bad at all! (And I love those little flowers!)

I bookmarked this link(http://www.supereggplant.com/archives/000216.htmllittle me gave me in the other thread> It shows a clear picture of what you just explained. But thank you!~ I think I did something entirely different on this bag.. but some how I managed to get the lining in there. Thank you for the compliments. Im getting vacation from school very soon so Ill definitely be doing a whole lot of practice and thank goodness for a forum like this Ill have a lot of inspirations and so on!.
