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.

Cut Out Lining

Fold side BC in half. Sew with a 1/2″ seam allowance from the fold to 1/2″ before corner BC.

Fold BC in half and sew

Flip the unsewn edge back away from side AB, then fold side AB in half and sew in same manner as BC.

Fold away from other side

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.

Lining Pocket

Cut out the Purse Pocket.

Medium Bag

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.

Sew in first side of zipper

Fold both pieces of fabric in half to sandwich in the other side of the zipper and sew in the same manner.

Sew in second side of zipper

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.
