try using a heavy duty thread like button and craft thread or monofilament (clear fishing line) thread. also, when you put on a button or sequin knot your thread behind each one that way if your thread does break, everything won't fall off

oooh, i just made one of these....

This is actually really easy... i'm going to try to explain it since i'm new and don't know how to do a tutorial.

i just used a half yard of fabric each for the outside and the inside, sewed the bottom and sides of each leaving a small hole to turn it right side out in the lining. flipped the outside part of the bag right side out and put it inside the lining so the right sides are facing. so the two together along the top. Flip right side out through the hold in the lining and whip stitch it closed. now sew a second row of stitching about 3/4" below the first seam ( where the drawstring will go) snip a small cut on each side close the the seam, thread a drawstring through in each direction, leaving long tails on each side. Now to attach those strings to the bottom, you could use grommets or something. I used ribbon with a white plastic ring on each side that i sewed in when i did my bottom seam. Hope that helped if not, let me know and i'll figure out how to do a tute with pics.

I'm assuming you can hopefully sew, but here is how i do it on my knitted purses...

Lay the bag out on a piece of fabric that is folded in half, trace the outside of the bag part where the lining will be. cut it out and sew it around the botton and sides. Fold down the top part and sew along to hide raw edges. then put it in your bag and hand sew around the top with clear thread. try not to go all the way through the front part of the bag since clear thread is kind of shiny. I guess you could use colored thread instead if the bag is thin.

hope that helped if not let me know i'll take some pics of the one i need to line for you. Smiley

have you considered the vets memorial on broad street where they always have those closeout expo's? It's supposed to be huge and right in the downtown area, so it would be easy to find plus lots of parking??? just a thought.

I work at the joanns in easton and although you don't want to step inside wal-mart, they do have some good dollar fabric sometimes. but you gotta get there on the days they get it in, it goes pretty fast. (i think friday is the day they get it.) so i would check that out.
