ok.
so i am making a knitted purse.
i just picked a pattern i liked a lot, cables, nothing special, and knitted a long rectangle.
im going to fold it in half, sew the sides together with tapestry needles, and add a purse handle you can buy at michaels or something.
i want to have a lining on the inside, cloth, though. maybe add a pocket.
i cant think of any good way to add a lining though. im stuck.
i cant really sew it to the knitted square (or can i? how would one recommend that?) or fabric glue it...
any ideas?

I've lined a crochet purse before and first sewed the fabric in the same shape and slightly smaller. Then hand sewed it into the crocheted purse. You should be able to add a pocket when you are sewing it.

You definitely can sew a fabric lining to a knit purse. What you'd need to do is sew up the lining the way you want it (with pockets, whatever) first. Then, lay it inside the purse you've knit and sew the two together. I find the best way for doing this is to use a giant, sharp tapestry needle (the kind with an eye big enough for yarn, which usually means it's massive and terrifying ) and use the same yarn you knit the purse with to hand sew the two together. Does that make sense?
