We repeat on the other side and then join the two sides together.
And then we flip it right side out. Probably press some more.
Then we stick the bags inside one another with right sides together, pin and sew.
Note: If you do this wrong, it looks like this:
This is wrong and involves removing lots of stitches. Don’t do it.
Turn the whole thing right side out by pulling through the hole in the lining. Do a little top stitching at the top to make it look nice.
. . . and stitch up the hole in the lining. I used small hand stitches. I usually favor machine stitching but out of laziness I didn’t want to change the thread. I think this was actually simpler and it certainly looks nicer. So this may become my default way of closing up these turning holes.
I created the little tabby to go on the outside. I had to make mine a little smaller and trial-and-error it a bit because of some other errors I made. You can read more about those in my wrap up post.
Press and pin the strap. And finally attach it:
Now attach the tabby with some buttons.
And you’re done!
