Step 1: Sew Up any Slits in your Denim Skirt
I started by sewing the bottom slit closed.
Step 2: Sew the Bottom of your Bag
Keep your bag inside out and line up the bottom seam and side seam at each bottom corner. Then measure in about 2.5? from the tip of the corner and sew across.
Step 3: Prepare your Bag Lining
To figure out how much I needed I measured the outside of my bag an added 1/2? seam allowance on all sides. I then cut out two pieces that size.
Step 4: Preparing your Bag Strap
For this project I decided to use the strap from some sort of holdall bag we used to own that I had squirrelled away in my craft cupboard.
Step 5: Assembling Your Bag
First, you need to place your bag outer inside the lining – right sides together. Then slide in your bag strap loops at the side seams.
