    I have a question! I made my first bow tucks bag, sorry no pics camera batteries went dead, when you pull the bag thru the 8 inch opening in lining my directions say nothing about closing it up, just make the bottom sleeve and put in, it just seems weird not to do something with that hole. Please tell me what u all have done with it. I know it gets covered with the bottom piece but it just does not seem right to leave it opened. Thank u all in advance, this is a great bunch of talented people and I love reading and seeing everything everyone does. :-D

    I folded the edges in and tucked it in so they just met.
