welcome out of lurkerdom!

I also love that brazilian bikini, but where I am there are no good yarns available.  and I don't have a small enough hook.  but I could do a sort of practice run along with you?

beautiful!  your stitch looks great. 

I'd also like to hear if you made an extra large rectangle to get the longer sleeves?

these are beautiful. 

may I ask, since I'm so cheap, how much did having the coasters cut cost you?

I have a bunch of large photos someone just printed out for me and I've been wondering how to store them so that they won't get hurt... this looks like a perfect idea!  thank you for the tutorial.  I hope to get it made this weekend, I'll post pics.

Well, first cut two peices of fabric in a shape that will fit the bag (in this case, a circle). Fold and press both peices where the opening of the bag will be. Sew on those peices (not together) so there wont be any raw edges. Then sew peices together right sides facing out. Turn so the right side of the fabric is inside. Put inside the bag, then sew (by hand) around the seam of the bag and the seam of the lining. That should be it. Theres really nothing special to it. Let me know if this doesnt make sense.

ok I'm not totally getting this. I'm sorry I'm thick. well it's late here and I'm getting...very...sleepy...
so first, measure two pieces, then, hem each piece, right? I don't really get what "fold and press both pieces where the opening of the bag will be" means. also, I don't understand why I should sew with the right sides facing out? and then turn it before lining the bag. don't I want the right side of the fabric to be visible inside the bag? sorry if my questions are the stupidest you've ever heard regarding something so simple. thanks very much for your help and btw, I love your signature! ha ha that's pretty good.

OH NO! Youre so right about the right sides facing out thing. Im soo sorry. Just sew the bag with the right sides facing eachother. That way you wont have those edges inside the bag. You just want the right sides facing eachother (pretty sides) so that when you look inside the bag, you see the right side of the fabric with the pattern or whatever you choose.
About the "fold and press both pieces where the opening of the bag will be", the name of the game is just making sure you dont have any raw edges because then it would fray and get all icky.

I guess I made that sound way more complicated than it really was. Im really sorry, Arabella. That was very sucky of me.

*please* don't apologize!!  I really appreciate the time you have taken to try and advise my poor lost soul.  I am going to go home tonight and try to line it.  may the sewing spirits be with me...  I'll post pics.  maybe I'll take some "during" pics so everyone can laugh at the debacle.  actually, I don't have an iron (don't laugh) so you can probably expect some icky fraying.

Its from crochet me. http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_fleuri.html

I'm doing one too right now and it's small like yours but I'm not sure how I'm going to close it. What did you do arabella?

I planned on doing a button closure but since I am lazy I just sewed a lot of it shut and plan to hope for the best.  I still might do a snap closure once I get it lined.

however, I was reading some other threads regarding this purse (I'm not sure which, but it has 25+ replies with lots of fleuri bags) and some people did zippers as well as buttons.  you should check it out, it's a good thread if you are making this super cute bag thingy.
