so- i'm kinda new to actually USING the boards on here (instead of just reading them!) and I'm wondering if I'll even be able to figure out how I've got responses on here.  But I'll get there.

Anyway- my question is - In the Noriko Handbag pattern, there is one very confusing part, and I'm thinking it might be the only part that's stopping me from making the bag!

"press the seam allowances in one direction for the lining, and the other direction for the cover"

I'm assuming that this is probably an important step (otherwise why bother writing it?!) but It doesn't make any sense to me!!!  Is it supposed to be something that kind of makes support inside of the bag??? 

If there were pics of it, I'd be able to understand it.  But Another part sort of confuses me too!

"Hold one part upside down by the bottom.  seperate the other side with your hand and it should look like a hood" 

I get what shes trying to make me do, but doesn't that leave me with two lined pieces that I can't sew together?!?!?!?

Well, if you press the seam allowances that way, they will be less bulky than pressing them all in the same direction.

As for the other bit, you have to "open" those "hoods" and then insert one into each other.
Try it and you'll see you'll be able to sew them together.
