Once you stitch something on Aida fabric how can you put it on a bag?

I would serge, zig zag, or fray check the edges so that they don't fray.  You didn't mention if you were using the cross-stitched piece as a front of the bag or if it's going to be placed on another fabric.  If you're going to use it to make the bag, I would put either some coordinating fabric or stablilizer underneath as aida isn't very stiff.  Hope this helps!

It's been a loooooooooong time since I used it, but there used to be (might still be) an aida cloth that you could attach to another fabric, stitch right over the two, wash it and the aida would come apart, so your design is left on the other fabric... that might be useful for future purse making.

Otherwise, I'd agree with the post above.

I think you are referring to waste canvas and yes  it is still available.  I think maybe one has to look a little hard to find it these days though.  I have used it a lot in the past.
