I really like your color choices! I'm dealing with that "ew" on the inside of my bags too...but I haven't wrapped my head around how to line them quite yet! I think they look good. I like the last one's colors...a lot!

Your bags are good!!  I really like that last one, it looks quilted, did you quilt it?

If either of you are looking for easier ways to line a bag, search for the Jordy Bag Tutorial in the search bar, she shows a GREAT way to line bags.  But that's only if you're looking.

Personal swaps???!?!?  Why yes...I LOVE personal swaps!!!!

If you check out some of the bag tutes, they'll explain this really well. But basically, your lining should be assembled seperately, so you can put the "ew" sides together. Think like you're making one bag with a pretty exterior, one with a pretty interior, and then putting one inside the other. Then at the point you want to close them, fold your raw edges into the space between, and topstitch.
Depending on the style, you'll attach them in different parts, but that's the bare bones.

I really like the last one, I carry a ton of books and notebooks, so rectangley bags make me happy.

Don't worry about the English you speak better than 75% of the internet population. And are you turning your lining inside out when you put it into the shell? It would make the better less "eww" and more..kewl  Grin

thanks for all ur comments. it really means a lot to me Smiley

ok. to answer ur questions.

only the 1. bags looks from the inside "ew" because it was my first bag and i dont really knew how to hanle it..

i dont know if it is quilted what ive done but i sew some pattern on the front..

mhm have have too say the last one is the one which is the best processed. but it is from me a bit too small..hihi
