Prepare Lining

1. Sew together green floral B pieces along pair of straight edges. Press seam in one direction, then press green floral pieces with wrong sides together. Topstitch 1/8" from straight edge seam to make pocket unit.

2. Aligning rounded edges, position pocket unit on right side of a light green print A piece. Join edges with a scant 1/4" seam. Draw a centerline and stitch to create two pockets (Diagram 5), reinforcing at upper edge with a small stitched triangle.

3. With right sides together, sew together Step 2 unit and remaining light green print A piece, leaving upper edge open and a 4" opening at lower edge for turning, to make bag lining.
