allright i understand what you're trying to say...a little. I can add the bias taping around the top of the lining and outside bag while their together...but i got confused on the second part where you were saying how i could fix the baginess problem--because that's wut i really need help with. and if i wanted to fix that problem would i have to finish all the edges of every piece with bias tape?

I know you can use bias tape for the edges and everything--but i'm talking about the small hole in the bottom of the lining that you have to pull the whole bag through to turn it right-side out. But that's not really my biggest problem. I have no idea what to do about the too-big lining. Whenever i put it inside the exterior fabric it's always so huge and when i turn the whole thing right side out it's always so blahhhh--a.k.a. wrinkly and baggy and stuff...should i make it slightly smaller next time? I used like two layers of heavy duty fusible interfacing and i hate the way it feels because it has hard...wrinkles...and it's frustrating. I'm sorry my posts are so long but if someone would care to respond...??

I just finished a messenger bag w/ gussetts...or...w/e they're called, lol. But i'm not fully satisfied. I'm still going to carry it around school because i hate throwing away things before i actually use them--but i just have some questions because i desperately want to make a new one.

- When you pull the bag through the whole in the lining at the last step, how do you patch it up so that the seams are almost invisible? I don't think theres a way it can actually be inside like all the others, but tricks to making it look nice would be appreciated. Mine is very visible and i'm very frustrated with it.  Cry

- My lining is always too big for the bag, even though i cut it exactly the same size as the exterior fabric. Should i make it like an inch smaller or something?

Thanks for reading this. Answer if you can.

How would i resize a huge zip up hoodie? I have this blue one that i want to make smaller and maybe put a stencil on, but i have no clue how to do it. If i could get a tutorial or something that'd be awesome.

If you were to use a sealer, what would you use? I wanna paint some shoes today but i don't know which brand i should get and how well each one works. Any recommendations?

Hey i just used this tutorial--but at one of the last parts where it said to put the "bag" inside the "lining", i did that, and had to make a hole in the bottom of the "bag" to turn it right side out. Can anyone please explain the last few steps to me?  I'm very frustrated because 1) my bag is HUGE and i can't function with it and 2) there's holes all over the place for turning it.  Sad
