My first attempt at a lined bag
What's better than a bag made with one of your favorite fabrics?
A bag made with two of your favorite fabrics.
I threw this together last night while my husband was out. IKEA decorator fabric on the outside and more upcycled dining room curtains on the inside.
Yes, I realize the picnic table quality about it. I like it anyway.
My new brave self even managed a pocket.
I don't know why I haven't been doing this all along. I think in my head I had some crazy idea that I needed to make two bags...one outside, one inside...and then slip the inside one in the outside. Nope.
To make the lining, all I did was cut two extra pieces of fabric, the same size as my main pieces. I layered them, wrong sides to wrong sides of the main pieces, and went about my bag making business. So easy!
I don't know how many tote bags one girl needs, but have a feeling those vintage sheets are going to find themselves as linings of many more.
And do you need a laugh? My bobbin thought it would be a great idea if I had this mohawk of thread coming out the top of my new bag. Pretty awesome, huh?
