I have just begun to make the lovely Isabeau Purse
(http://www.chezplum.com/patterns/isabeau-purse/) to thank a nice lady who has been helping me out with untangling my health insurance options (long story). The pattern looks really nice and not too too hard.
My question is about the lining. I have never made a lining for a purse and have no idea what to do or how to do it. I guess my main questions are:
How big should the lining be? Just the size of the purse? Smaller? Bigger?
How should it be put together. Just fold over a piece of cloth and sew the ends together? Or should I give it sides like the purse?
How should the lining be attached to the purse?
What should the lining be attached to the purse with? Thread? Yarn?
Thank you so much for reading this and I will appreciate any help you can give.
