Aaaa! I had no idea sewing in a lining was so painful!! :hair:
I made this little felted purse (for more info see this thread - I didn’t want to repeat myself too much) http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=64827 out of a stockinette rectangle. It was supposed to be a practice item so I could make a nicer one for my friend, but she actually wants this one! :happydance:
Anyway, I wanted to try making an I cord strap and putting in a lining and magnetic snaps… But my friend said no strap. I couldn’t find any magnetic snaps in my travels today, so I will have to look more tomorrow…
I decided to sit down and try my hand at sewing in a lining tonight. I read this tutorial http://creativelittledaisy.typepad.com/creative_little_daisy/2006/01/basic_purse_tut.html but it was not much help to me. :whoosh:
I got some purple satin fabric and with some difficulty sewed it into a bag shape, but I couldn’t figure out how to sew it on the inside like she did in the tutorial. So I just sewed around the top. I don’t have a sewing machine and SHEESH was it hard! It looks like a drunken 2 year old sewed it, it is so uneven! Hopefully my friend will not look too closely. From about 2 feet away it looks great!
I want to make a lining for the skull tote I just made (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=63606), and I have the fabric I want to use, but there must be an easier way! Any suggestions are welcome. Use simple terms, apparently I am challenged. :teehee:
