I'm really confused at this step: Pin lining and bag together at top edges, with bag inside lining and right sides together.  Stitch top edges together, trim seam, and turn rightside out through hole in bottom

Could you maybe explain it more. Cause I dont know if something is supposed to be inside out, and I really want to finish this bag today. If there was a picture I wouldn't be so confused. I just dont know what goes inside out, etc.
Thank you.

 You should check out this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=7866.0  I'm sure you have probably figured it out by now!  but anyhoo, when you are sewing the lining to the outside part, the outside part needs to be inside out and the lining needs to be right side out, so the right sides  are facing each  other inside the bag.  seriously, pictures help, so check out that thread! (its the thread for the "Jordy" bags! tons of helpful pictures!)

Let's say I wanted to put a zipper into that instead of a flap.  Any suggestions?  Do you think the tutorial on adding a zipper to a jordy would probably work?

Thank you so much for this tutorial I finally made my own messenger bag! Even though I didn't really do everything exactly ( I have my own techniques) it came out really well! I even added a little bag inside to put my pens and such!

Thanks so much for the awesome tutorial! This was my first sewing project that was more complicated than a pillow. It took me several hours, and then I managed to sew the straps inside the bag...but it worked out in the end, and it was a great deal of fun!

I love this bag...I'm planning on Christmas presents for friends.

i finally finished mine! it's all handsewn--no machine for me Sad i worked on it off and on for the past month or so in the evenings while watching tv.

it's made of upholstery material and the lining is a thrift store xmas pillowcase. i didn't use interfacing because the upholstery fabric was pretty stiff. i ran out of fabric for the strap so that's made of an old pair of khakis and an old shirt. yay for recylcing!

just made this with nearly all free materials...the bag is denim free from scrap, the trim also from scrap, the velcro was in my toolbox from god-knows-what and the lining was leftover scrap.
i couldn't find my interfacing to save my life, so it's a little floppy, but the fabric is tough, so it's not too bad.  like a doe-head i sewed the flap inside the lining and had to take it out and redo it, but it's all pretty good for a first sincere effort.  i have more of all the fabric and trim and i think i'm going to make a full bookbag sized version tomorrow.  (this one has a copy of summerland in it, just so it can look legit.  Wink  i wanted to see how much it would flop and pull with weight in it and that was the fattest book i had on hand.)
fun stuff!
