Great job, especially on the color coordination! The lining is absolutely stunning.  I bet your SIL loves it (and you!)

I've been afraid to make a purse becasue of the lining. How did you sew the lining in? I'd be afraid the feet on the sewing machine would eat the yarn or snag it or something.

yes, the sewing machine does not like yarn, I tried to sew the straps to reinforce them, however that didn't work to well....  I just sewed the lining together using the dementions of the purse, the I whip stitched the lining into the purse.  I don't know if there is a better way, this is how most people I've talk to does it.  Hope this helps!
