without ever having made a square bottomed bag before, i'm still kind of confused about the hole, and pulling the bage rightside out through it. i'm sure maybe once i got to that step it might become clearer, but for the time being i'm  still quite confused.

Gloriana, I loved your bag so i made one of my own and wanted to post a picture of it:

I raelly hope that works, this is my first time posting a picture and i also apoligize for it being so big, im trying to figure out how tomake it smaller.

Anyways, the only thing that I did differently is that i used velcro to close it, instead of a snap and I should have used interfaving because it is pretty flimsy.  thats ok though, because i love it so much!

I can't see the photo, unfortunately - would love to see a pic, though, if you can get it to work!  Glad you found it helpful.  

OH WAIT!  never mind - now I can see it!  great job - what totally cute fabric!   Cheesy

As for the question about the hole and turning it inside out, I think it will help to actually do it - I find sometimes that if I read about something it's confusing but once I'm doing it everything seems clearer.  When I get to this stage with a bag, I pin the lining and fabric sections together with the lining on the outside.  That way once you've sewn the top edges of the bag together, you can just reach into the hole on the bottom of the lining section, feel for the fabric section, and pull it through the hole.  Then once you've pulled the fabric all the way through the hole, you stitch up the hole and push the lining section down inside the fabric section.  

I don't know if that helps at all or if it just makes it more muddled.   Smiley

I love the fabric you made the bag out of.  Where did you get it from?  I'm having a tough time finding any decent fabric lately.

I got it from a wholesale fabric place here in Houston.  Sometimes you can find places like this that sell a lot of fabric in bulk but also do cut fabric at reduced prices.  It's home dec fabric, really - sometimes the same kind of thing can be found on the sale table at JoAnn's or Hancock - look in the upholstery/home dec section.

If you're looking for funky retro cottons, though, I just love Reprodepot Fabrics online - http://www.reprodepotfabrics.com.

I love your pics and directions..Great Job!
Where do you get the magnetic snaps?  I live in a little town in the middle of nowhere, and of course our walmart doesn't have them.  Have been wanting to get some for soooo long. Huh

Thanks for the website.  The selection looks great.  The only fabric store in my area is Joann's, which is very limited.
