Find some of my favorite sewing supplies HERE. For the lining you’ll need 1 yard of fabric, fabric pencil or chalk, needle and thread, 4″ of sew-on Velcro, and a 8″ zipper. If you want to attach the bags to the purse you’ll also need about 6″ of thin ribbon or cord, 2 clips, and more of the yarn from the purse along with a crochet hook.
Come Together Purse Lining
To begin, you’ll need to cut out your lining as seen below.
Fold side BC in half. Sew with a 1/2″ seam allowance from the fold to 1/2″ before corner BC.
Flip the unsewn edge back away from side AB, then fold side AB in half and sew in same manner as BC.
Pull bag lining open and press seams open. Press cut edges down 1/2″. You will need to clip the downward point on the un-seamed side to be able to fold the edges.
Cut out the Purse Pocket.
Fold the Purse Pocket in half with right sides together. Seam around leaving and opening to turn. Turn and press, being sure to push corners out with a point turner. Mark the center of the pocket with a stitching line. Pin the pocket on the seamed side of the bag.
Sew pocket on as seen below, taking care not to sew through to the other side of the lining.
Pin lining inside purse and hand stitch along top of lining to bottom of purse border.
Cut one 9×8 square for the small bag.
Fold the piece in half so it’s 4.5″ x 8″. Sew 1/2″ seams leaving an opening as seen below.
Clip the corners to just under 1/8″ away from the points of the seams. Flip the piece right side out and use a point turner to push out the 2 corners farthest away from the opening. top stitch the opening shut.
Push the side with the opening inside the the other side to make the self-lined bag. Press, then sew in the Velcro. Add a loop to a top corner if you want to attach the bag inside the purse.
Cut out 2 pieces of fabric, both 9″ x 8″. Place one piece right side up, place the zipper across a 9″ side of the piece, place the other piece right side down on top of that, sandwiching the zipper inside. Sew across the 9″ side with the zipper, about 1/8″ closer to the edge of the fabric from the zipper teeth. Flip pieces at the seam and press.
Fold both pieces of fabric in half to sandwich in the other side of the zipper and sew in the same manner.
Flip the bag so that both pieces of fabric are folded in half, right sides together, with the zipper in the center. Sew the edges of the fabric from the fold to 1/4-1/2″ from the zipper in the 3 places shown below.
Flip the bag so all the fabric is right side out. Fold in the unsewn edge 1/2″ and topstitch it shut. Tuck the inside of the bag into place. Neaten up the 2 ends of the zipper and stitch them in place by hand if needed. If you want to clip the bag inside the purse, then add a ribbon loop to the top corner where the zipper pull is when the zipper is shut.
Bag straps in Purse
Join yarn to the inside of the purse border. Chain 35-40, *sl st into the back end of a clip, ch 1, repeat from the * once or twice, then sl st in the bottom bumps of each chain. Make the second strap in the same manner.
