Like the title?? It makes me giggle :)
I made a picture tutorial for a simple way to line the Fat Bottom Bag from SnB: HH. I used this method for my first bag and it turned out amazingly perfect, much to my surprise. The bag is lined before
you start the handle flaps. I cannot stress the before
enough. When you start the handle flaps, the bag will be gathered at the handles and it is very difficult to line a bag that is gathered.
fabric for lining
sewing thread to match yarn
needle for handsewing or sewing machine for machine sewing
So to start, finish your Fat Bottom Bag body portion and weave in all ends before you begin. The body will not lay completely flat. Due to gauge and yarn differences, I will not be adding measurements for the lining but will show how to find your measurements.
**The sides will have extra fabric, that is the way it needs to be. It will allow 100% usage for the bag space. With this method you will not end up with a short lining therefore will not rob the bag of valuable space.**
