hey guys...i just wanted to let you know this and another project i want to do tutorials on but we found out we are moving *very soon*. its just across town but a lot needs to be organized and what not.
as soon as we get settled i will have more room to make a tutorial. i plan to do them w/ pictures but i can try to explain how i did the divider.
i made the outside same as any other bag with sides and bottom.
then for the inside i cut:
2 large pieces same size as outside front and back
2 side pieces same size as 2 outside side pieces
2 more pieces the same *length* as the outside but i cut the height down about 4 or 5 inches.
1 bottom piece same side as outside
take those two last pieces first. i sewed interfacing to one of them. pinned the tops together *right* sides together and made a seam.
then i flipped it to *wrong* sides together and ironed. sewed again along the top seam.
then i took the 2 side pieces i cut and cut them each in half. i also cut the bottom piece in half.
then i constructed the inside in this order:
1 large piece:
1 half side piece on each side, then one bottom piece.
then i take the divider piece i added the interfacing to and sew that to the side pieces i just sewed to the first piece. does that make sense? then i sew the already attached bottomed piece to the divider and sew up the small bottom edges.
then to the other half of the divider piece i sew the other 2 side pieces and bottom piece. then sew the other larger piece to that. i leave a seam along the bottom edge open to turn.
then i finish the bag as normal. outer and lining right sides together, sew along the top, flip etc.
does that make sense? prob not.
i will do one with pictures after we move. i promise
