HAND MADE BAG USING ANKARA A FREE PROJECT,(video 5)

In this video, we will be cutting the lining for our Ankara bag. Ideally ,I like using taffeta material for my bag lining. When cutting the lining, please remember to fold it into two . On one part of the lining we will be putting a small inner bag for putting your phone, eye glasses, etc. the measurement for that is 14 by 7 inches on the opposite side of the bag lining we will make a small bag with zip. the measurement is 12 by 8 inches. We will also attach the frills on the material we are using to make the bag.
Please watch the video and follow along.

Remember to fold the material into two for the bodies .the topmost part is also folded and cut in two pieces. that is where we will put our 5 inch foam and cardboard and of course our eyelets.
