here are the last steps for the small bag with zipper:
last week I sewed the zipper into the bag
and the lining
now I pinned my middle part to one lining part
and sewed them at the 3 sides together
the lining is bigger as the middle part, so the fabric is folded up at the still open corners…
now I pinned the side-seams
and sewed them together from the corner in the lining to the corner of the cork-fabric over the zipper. I also sewed the bottom seams in cork-fabric and lining but left a small opening in the lining
then I folded the corner to corner and sewed
now I turned all right side out through the opening I left in the lining seam
looks like this
now I turned my lining into my bag
and pulled the seam allowance of the corners through the opening and sewed them together – this way the lining is fixed inside and will not pull out when you pull something from the bag.
after doing that to both corners I closed the opening
to keep the lining from being caught in the zipper I sewed parallel the the zipper
and my bag is finished:
It certainly proofed already to be really handy, keeping my little things together and organized.
