This bag is fully lined. It has a flat bottom so the bag sits nicely. The top can be folded down to sit open.

For beginners of any age, I've created these sewing instructions with 3 pages of easy to follow step by step instructions with diagrams & photographs; includes pattern piece to print and pin onto fabric to cut. This is a simple design to get you started!

Let your creativity take it from here! You can make changes to size (height and/or width) to fit different things, like for use as a gift bag for a wine bottle. Think: gift giving bags, storage bags, snack bags, party favors. They could be lined with Insul-Brite to keep things cold or hot. They could be decorated with stick-on or sew on appliques or buttons, fancy stitching, lace, etc. Use your imagination!
