Sew the Lining

  • Optional: Sew in an inside pocket as shown for an everyday pocketbook.
  • Place the right sides of the lining fabric together aligning all the edges.
  • Leaving a 4" opening in the bottom of the lining, sew the side seams and bottom seam.
  • Square the bottom of the bag by sewing across the bottom as you did for the body of the bag.
  • Sew two rows of basting stitches between the markings on each side of the top of the lining, to gather the top of the lining as you did the body of the bag.
