Sewing Gussets before Felting Bag?

Hi All,

I made a “stash bag” tote from directions in the AlterKnits book which I have since returned to the library. It’s knit in the round…you change colors for stripes whenever you want, using up your stash…then you seam the bottom and sew “gussets” before felting. Seaming the bottom is no problem, but I can’t remember how to do the gussets. I know they’re like triangles at each side of the bottom of the bag, but I don’t remember the exact instructions.

Can anyone help me…direct me to a web site…or maybe I just need to check out that book again.

Thanks in advance,
