    My gosh, that bag is so stinkin’ cute! My 27 year old daughter is a handbag fanatic – I may just have to make this one for her. You are so creative! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi – I love the bag and I am almost finished but I’m a little frustrated. The instructions just sort of end and little info is given about putting in the lining-do I turn the outer purse right side out- how do I finish the interior zipper area? How to I attach the the lining to the inside?

    Help-are there more instructions for the lining somewhere else?

      Hi Sheila! Thanks so much for your message. It looks like part of the instructions got cut off. Once the exterior and lining are assembled, you will turn the exterior right side out. Place the lining inside the exterior so that they are wrong sides together, then slipstitch the pressed edge of the lining to the wrong side of the zipper. Hope this helps!

    Hi, have been looking for pattern for this style of bag! have gone thru all the tutorial but it seems not much info on putting together the lining and final finishing of bag- perhaps you’ve not had time to finish the rest of the instructions ? hopefully you’ll get time to finish the instructions soon as I’m VERY keen to get started on this bag- I also had trouble locating the actual pattern from the link provided, I figure I can probably work out the pattern – basically a circle and gusset would need to be the same finished measurement as the circumference of the circle. Hope to hear from you soon, all the best, and may you continue to design more lovely bags!
