Assemble Bag Lining

1. Repeat Assemble and Quilt Outer Bag, Step 5, using beige print 16×22-1⁄2" rectangles to make pleats in lining rectangles.

2. Layer lining rectangles right sides together. Sew together side and bottom edges, leaving a 5" opening on one side for turning bag right side out. Press seams open.

3. To shape a flat bottom for lining, at one corner, match bottom seam line to side seam line, creating a flattened triangle (Diagram 8). Measure and mark on seam allowance 2-1⁄2" from point of triangle. Draw a 4"-long line across triangle and sew on drawn line. Trim excess fabric. Repeat at remaining bottom corner to make bag lining. Leave lining wrong side out.
