I've been crocheting for a couple of years now. I taught myself. Mostly started w/ the usual - scarves, simple blankets etc. I've really enjoyed making purses & totes over the last month & would love to line them. I have fabric picked out, but I'm not real sure how to go about lining the purses. How do you attach the lining to the purse?  Thanks for the help.

I usually just measure the inside of the bag and make a pattern for the lining that way. There are plenty of patterns under the topic for bags and purses in the tutorial list. Use one of those if you are having difficulties.

Hand stitching the lining is what works best for me. You can make an invisible stitch by hand.

Good luck with the lining!!
