  • Placing right side of the lining against the right sides of the body of the bag, sandwiching the top of the bag between them, pin the top of the lining in place, distributing the gathers evenly.
  • Sew using a 1/2" seam allowance.
  • Turn right sides out through the opening in the bottom of the lining.
  • Optional: Add a solid base piece for Plexiglas, light-weight wood, cardboard or similar material, the width of the triangle by the length of the bottom.
  • Hand stitch the opening closed.
  • Enjoy your new bag!
