i know this is an old thread, but i was wondering if someone could help me out...

When i attached the lining to the bag according to instructions, it seemed like my straps and cover flap got "swallowed" by the lining, and disappeared from the outside of the bag... so when i pulled it through they were gone. what did I do wrong / how can I fix this?

*figures my first post ever would be cuz I screwed something up and had to ask how to fix it... lol*

Thanks in advance!

I just finished my first bag! I used a fabric that my mom gave me. When I was little, I had a pillowcase of the exact same fabric. I have always hated it, it's so old fashioned! I decided to deal with this childhood trauma by turning the fabric into an experiment bag, with a zillion mistakes. that'll show them! Grin


I'm not going to show you the inside since I made a VERY feeble attempt to insert a zipper pocket. Undecided

Plen, that happened to me as well! Shocked I turned the whole thing inside out and was like: erm...didn't I attach a flap? I just ripped the lining and the outside fabric apart and started again, but now that it's fixed I don't remember anymore how I did it. Good luck!

(edit 5 minutes later): I think you should not put the flap and the straps inside the outer bag at the point where you put the outer bag in the lining bag, but leave them in between the two bags. Then you can pull everything out later.

Oops! I think that was me. I couldn't figure out how to insert an image the other day, so I deleted my post. Sorry for "psyching" you out.

Here's my bag. My flap is waaaaaaay longer than everyone else's. I think I didn't cut a flap pattern piece and accidentally just did another body piece? Magnetic snap, quilted, and bound. I won't be doing THAT again. The three-way seams + binding were weird. I should just have done the pattern as written!

Still, I love it, and I'm getting compliments right and left. Thank you for the pattern.

ok i have a pretty urgent question you guys..

can't you just sew the lining to the outside pieces before you put the bag together?

does it really matter? it just seems easier that way to me. but ive never tried before and im about to.

I might be completely delusional and misunderstanding your question but here's my best shot at an answer. Smiley

If you did that, how would you attach the flap?

Normally, you would sew the top of the lining and outside fabrics together with the flap sandwiched between the two layers.  That way, when you turn it right-side-out...you have a flap that is connected and the edges are hidden between the layers. 

So I don't believe that you could sew the lining in first unless you left a gap to later insert the flap into...you might as well do it all at the same time, right?

Very helpful tute. Thanks so much! I do have to say that I found it easier to have one long strip for the side instead of three that are sewn together. That way you don't have to worry about lining up the seams.
