Lining a knitted purse

chickadee__3aJune 13, 2013

Not being a knitter (I'm a sewer and quilter) I'm not sure how to complete a project my niece has given me. She learned to knit this past winter and made several felted items, one of which is a sort of tote bag type shoulder purse. She wants me to line it so it would be sturdier and wouldn't stretch and add some body .Can any of you recommend some online sites where I could get some ideas?
Thanks very much for any help.

I don't know of any sites but I would lay out the purse on paper and trace around it to make a pattern. Then cut out the pattern and sew it up with a sturdy double stitching on the bottom. I'd press it and turn under a hem at the top. Turn it inside out and place in the bag and hand stitch the top
