This bag took a long time to complete! I made the gusset 5 inches instead of 3 inches, by starting with a chain of 27. It took so much yarn to do this project! It took almost a whole skein just to complete the front and the back pieces.

I lined it by cutting pieces of fabric to match the bag pieces (maybe a half inch larger), and then sewing them together. I hand-sewed the lining in by following this tutorial. I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out! I lined the two large pockets (or six small ones), but not the two on the ends.
