MAKING UP 1. Us­ing a steam iron on a medium set­ting gen­tly press the bag on the re­verse of the fab­ric.

2. With the wrong side of the fin­ished piece fac­ing up, pin the lin­ing fab­ric to the bag, fold­ing un­der a 2cm seam all the way around as you do.

3. Hand sew the lin­ing fab­ric to the bag, re­mov­ing the pins as you go. Due to the stretchy na­ture of the yarn, you may find that you need to slightly ad­just how much lin­ing fab­ric is folded un­der as go, to keep it flat.

4. Open up the zip and pin one side of it to the top long edge of the lin­ing fab­ric.

5. Hand sew it to the lin­ing, us­ing back­stitch to make it nice and se­cure. Re­peat for the sec­ond side.
