Cut out bag lining material


First of all, take measurement of circle size.

In my case, it is 27.5 cm.  Also, measure the length of the last 3 rows – 2.5cm.
Secondly, measure the perimeter – 76.5cm.
For the opening, I leave 25cm.
We have all the measurement needed for cutting out lining fabric.
There will be 5 pieces needed for the lining.

  • 2 circles 24.5cm in diameter –  22.5+2cm seam allowance =24.5 (27.5-(2.5*2) = 22.5cm+2cm)
  • 1 rectangle: height 7cm=5+2cm, length 53.5cm=51.5+2cm (1cm seam allowance for each side)
  • 2 rectangles: height 4.5cm=2.5cm+2cm, length 27cm=25 cm + 2cm (1cm seam allowance for each side)

You will need to sew all pieces together.

Next step is to prepare the opening for the zipper and add bag rings. Take a piece of yarn and hide crochet chain (by wrapping yarn around the crochet chain), and at the same time add bag rings on each side!

It is time to add a zipper! Don’t hurry, and it will turn out good! Take your time!
Line up lining with zipper – I call it a hamburger! My advice to sew both sides at the same time. Start from each side at the same time.  Test how a zipper works.

The last step is to choose a bag chain or strap and attach it! If you want to see a more detailed explanation, please watch the video!
