Maybe i can help you get started...

take a tape measure and measure all the way around your bag...
and then measure the bag from top to bottom...

the first measurement will be how wide you need to cut your fabric,
the other is how tall you need it...

be sure to add extra to these measurements before cutting the fabric for the seam allowance.
for example: if you sew a 1/2in. seam allow. add 1in. (1/2in. for both parts of the seam).

 sew the fabric into a tube, right sides together...

two methods next pick one...
put the tube over the bag right sides together...
and sew around the top edge of the bag... leaving an opening for turning...sew the bottom edge of lining across, right sides together... pull each corner so it looks like a triangle and sow across it to square off the the lining bottom...turn right side out and stitch the opening shut.

second...press under the upper edge of the tube...sew the bottom of the lining as above... and square off the bottom... place the lining in the bag... and hand or machine sew in place which ever works best for your bag...

hope you understand this...

good Luck!
