I made a Jordy bag and actually inserted the plastic canvas into the bottom of the bag before I closed up the lining -- that way it's between the outer and inner layers Smiley  It does tend to shift a bit, but it's wide enough that it won't roll over to one side.  BTW, I inserted it after I did the final "inside-outing".

wow! I love the fabric ... so cute! Where'd you get it?
Actually I shouldn't ask it because it's probably unavailable here in the UK, so I will sit here feeling very sad Cry lol
Great bag, thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the compliments everyone!  Smiley
And SpaceCraft, the fabric is some remnants that I've had in my huge box of material for a while now - at least three or more years.  I haven't sewn until recently when I became addicted to making purses.  So when I went through my box, it was like Christmas - I kept discovering all this great stuff I could do things with.  I also like rummaging through the remnants bin in the fabric stores.  Grin  I was just at Wal-Mart and copped a whole bunch of nice leftovers - some for $.25!!!!

i love your purse!  I found this post awhile ago, then couldn't find it again, so....No one seemed to ask if you used a pattern or made it up yourself.  So i'm asking.....did you use a pattern, if so which one? or if not then how'd you do it...?  Thanks loads  Cheesy
