I'm hoping perhaps someone has this pattern and can help me. This is for bag "A" with the dots and bamboo handle. I can't figure out how to sew the the outer bag and lining together. When I sew the two pieces together I can't turn them right side out. And I left the opening as instructed. I do not think I was supposed to turn one of the pieces right side out. Can anyone put this in terms I could perhaps understand?  Smiley

Well, I think I got it. Grrrr Angry I find patterns hard to follow at times. I seem to do better with the purse making books like the Sheri Haab book that really walk you through each step.

It's a good thing I used a scrap piece of fabric as I beat the heck out of the poor thing.  Smiley But thanks any way.

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

I don't have the pattern but I think I know where you went wrong.
In step 1, your sewing the two edges of the right sides together of the outer fabric.
In step 2, your doing the same thing to the lining fabric, but skipping the open section on the side.
In step 3, layer these, one inside the other, with right sides together.  Match up the unfinished edges and stitch around the top of them.  I'm pretty sure this is where things got out of wack for you.  If it still doesn't work for you, let me know.

There is no such thing as a stay-at-home mom.
