Line Your Knit and Crochet Totes with Pretty Fabriccomments (4) November 21st, 2008
Just in time for the holidays, check out this well-explained tutorial for lining a crocheted handbag by Alice Merlino of FutureGirl Craft Blog. With photos and tips for each step, she'll take you through everything from measuring the bag to determine your lining size, to putting in the final seams. A fabric lining makes any crochet or knit bag much more functional and is just the thing to kick your holiday gifts up a notch. Although she mainly mentions crocheted bags, her method would, of course, also work for knitted, felted, woven, and any other means of handmade bags you create.
