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.

what a great present!

I've been debating whether to buy this book, but maybe I'll go ahead.  I do want to make those slippers! 

And I really like your ying/yang thing.  I think they are nicer that way, actually, so it was serendipitious that you ran out of yarn.

where did you get the yarn from?  did you buy it or recycle it?  I can't wait to get my hands on some wool I can dye!!  one more question regarding the pattern - is it easy to adjust it for different size feet?

again, lovely slippers.  your friends are going to be really touched and excited.

it's beautiful!  I love the story behind it!  so tell us you got the sweater for really cheaply so we can be even more impressed.  I am dying to recycle some sweaters to get some yarn. 

as usual Beppycat, beautiful work.

Thats really cute, i love the color. I made one a little while back. It is very easy for beginners. I had the same problem with stretch. I lined it, and it turned out just fine. Go for it! Also, about the stitch marker. I would recomend ALWAYS using a stitch marker. It's just soo much harder when you dont. I always use either a safety pin, or a bobby pin especially if you take your crochet with you. You dont have to worry about it falling out.

Yeah I never used a stitch marker because I always thought I was too badass for all that.  and I was, until, well yeah.  uh huh.  believe me, lesson learned. 

regarding the lining, do you have any tips/advice on sewing it to the bag?  I am worried about that part.  sewing the lining seems fairly straightforward but I just foresee a big ol' mess when I try and attach the lining to my loose little bag.

edited to say:  this is the fleuri purse pattern from crochetme.com, see a couple posts down for pattern.

I only had a G hook and some super low quality super lightweight yarn, so it's *very* stretchy. I will probably line it one of these days, but I've never lined a crocheted item before so I'm hesitating.  I should have used two strands of yarn together but at first I thought "oh I'll just try it with one" and then by time I realized I should be using two, I felt like I was halfway there already.  laziness ruins all my potentially good handmade items.

here it is with my lip balm, key and money inside... all I really need.  I know it looks kind of jacked up in the picture, but actually it is round.


this pattern is very easy and I totally recommend it to beginners.  um, and if anyone is going to do it, don't think you're too cool to use a stitch marker - it is very hard to find your beginning stitch because you crochet in a spiral.  I lost count thinking about food and then had a hell of a time figuring out where I was, but by some miracle I managed to, but from then on, yeah, I used a "stitch marker" (well all I had was a piece of yarn, so that's what I used)

very impressive!  looks like you did a fabulous job - it fits perfectly and everything.  did you follow a pattern or did you design this one?

and isn't in nice to make something for yourself sometimes?!  Smiley
