How To Make Your Purse Lining

The lining is what will give your purse a polished look.

Not to mention, it’s where the slip pocket is.

Finishing it up with the lining.

I didn’t take any of this part and hope the written explanation will do!

Today we are going to get this Art Purse finished up.

In Step 5 you sewed your lining pieces together, if you haven’t done it.

Now would be a good time. 🙂

Now for the “fun part”

– and sometimes the

Is this going to work? part…

  1. Stuff the outside of the bag, inside the lining.
    Right sides together
  2. Match the seams and pin it in place.
  3. Using a 1/4″ seam, sew the lining to the bag.
    Leave an opening across the back, big enough to turn the bag right side.
  4. There are some pretty thick spots to go through when you’re doing this.

    Over the quilted seams and over that key fob, tread lightly, go slowly – do whatever you need to do to get through.

  5. Turn your bag right side out.
  6. Lightly press it.
  7. Hand stitch the opening closed.
  8. Now topstitch 1/4” away from the top.

    And yes do stitch across the Key Fob

  9. Now let’s cover up that magnetic snap with a 3-dimensional applique.

    Yo-Yo’s were my thing for purses and it’s what I used on the prototype.

    Yo-yos just didn’t do it for this classy clutch…they are much more fitting to my colorful messenger bags.

    And Last but not least.

    Handstitch the end of the Fob in place close to the D-ring.
