I LOVE this bag!!! Cheesy
 i have never lined a purse before....and my sewing machine isnt working at the moment (its from 1957 and i dont really know how to fix it lol)  so can anyone suggest which stitch to hand sew the lining in would be best?? i would greatly appreciate it!!!!

Oh that bag is gorgeous!!

I have been wanting to try hand sewing a lining myself, mainly because I don't have a sewing machine but I haven't had the chance to give it a try.

I did find this tutorial online that looked really helpful. I haven't tried it yet but you might want to check it out.

Let us know how it goes!!
