Previously I was lazy to the extent of doing a standalone pouch before attaching it to the bag.. this looks better!

Thanks for sharing! I'll try it when I make my new bag.. Hope I can pull it off..

I used this tute 2xs to add pockets to the interior of my Weekenders.  Thanks for taking the time to add this.  It made my bags look so great!

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

Hey LauPre

Thank you very much for this tut  Kiss. Since I found it I've been so impressed by it that I add these kind of pockets to every bag I made.

In addition, it's one reason for joining craftster  Cheesy

Very Smart!! I don't like zippers very much or they don't like me. This is a great Idea. Your bags are very nice & sewn neatly. Thanks for the tute. I'll bookmark it & use it later.  Wink

Will do personal swaps!! I make Art Dolls/Junker Jane Dolls/Raggedy Ann & Andy Dolls/also TM Patches

I realize this is an old tutorial.  I have had this tutorial for a few years.  Let me just tell you that this tutorial is Awesome!   I have some questions.

I made a macrame purse and I would like to line it.  I took a walk-in sewing class and they basically made the pattern for me for the lining.  I have the front and back piece, and the sides and bottom is another piece. I know that I have to put on the zipper pocket and the open pocket before I sew the lining together. 

The purse is rather small so I don't have a lot of room inside the purse.   I lined the tab that goes over the purse from back to front.  I put in a sew-in magnet which I will also put on the front side of the lining inside the purse.  I have my big open pocket cut.  I sewed the pocket on the width side to make one piece. You stated this way you can have a different fabric inside and out.  At this point I do not understand how that would happen but for some reason I am making this more difficult than it needs to be.   

I can have a zipper pocket, 7" on one side and big open pocket on the other side.  My question, how wide do you make your bias tape?  I am making bias tape rather than using straight grain. Is it just a matter of figuring out how much room I will have on each side determines my size of bias tape?   

I apologize for the questions, I sewed a long time ago and am now trying to sew again so many years later.  I bought me a good sewing machine as the one I had was falling apart. 

I would send you a picture of the purse but I just now registered at Crafster and this is my first post.  I see I need 10 posts before I can upload any  images.

Thank you for your time and knowledge,
