    your bag turned out really good, another way you could do one is to sew together (wrong sides together) then bind the edges. gives the opportunity to add more design elements.
    now that you have one under your belt maybe you can start making shopping bags :D

    Have you heard of the process of "birthing a bag". It is a technique used by Barbara Randal (go to her web site).

    You make the bag including placing the handles then make your lining and sew together leaving a space on one side of the lining. Drop the purse down into the lining including the handles. You will be looking at the wrong side of the lining. (Lining and purse are right sides together) Sew around the top to secure the lining to the purse.....them pull the purse through the space in the lining. The tote falls in place and you can machine or hand stitch the space. This works great. It sounds crazy but if you ever do it once you may me hooked like me!

    I found this link in a Fons and Porter magazine. Gives full instructions for making a bag.

    So far, there haven't been any problems. I did go back and double stitch the bottom seams of the bag for extra durability.
    One way to help with the raw edges is to sew a binding over the seams.

    I use this method for no show seams anywhere on a bag. I cut the ends off the corners to make a flat bottom for a fancy bag.
