Inserting an inner lining for a quilted craft bag: Tools to make it easy by Paul Leger November 18, 2022 written by Paul Leger November 18, 2022 204 Over the last two days, I constructed a bag using Bosal In-R-Form Unique Sew-In Foam Stabilizer, including sewing up the inner lining for the craft bag. I’m happy with how easy it was to sew. It proved to be a sewing machine-friendly bag with no issues sewing through multiple layers. Today I’m using Odif 606 Iron on Adhesive for the fabric to complete the bag. Bosal Foam Stabilizers and Odif 606 Today I’m putting the inner bag in the craft bag and finishing the bag’s edge. The first step is to spray some Odif 606 Iron on Adhesive for the fabric inside of the outer bag. Once heated, the spray will help fuse both the inner and outer bags. After I sprayed the inside of the bag, I inserted the inner bag and carefully positioned it. Once I was happy with the placement, I used my Oliso Pro Smart Iron to press and fuse the inner bag to the outer bag. I started by fusing the bottom of the bag and then moved to the sides. To activate Odif 606 press with hot iron. Once the bag is fused, check the top of the bag to ensure the fabrics are squared with the Bosal In-R-Form Unique Sew-In Foam Stabilizer. Trim as required. Trim and square off the upper portion of the bag. The last step is to place a binding to the upper rim of the bag. This process is the same as putting on a binding to a quilt. Sew the binding to the inside of the bag first, then fold over the edge and sew it down to the front of the bag. Note: I strongly recommend sewing the binding down by machine, not by hand. This method adds strength to the bag. As you sew the binding, flip the bag’s handles up and sew them to the binding and bag. Sew handles to binding and bag. With the binding in place, I decided to place another seam right at the outer edge of the binding and again sewed down the straps of the bag as part of the process. Sew a seam at the outer edge of the binding. Now that the binding is on, the craft bag is completed. Completed bag The bag has lots of storage space for most craft projects. Interior of craft bag With my limited to no experience in making mats and bags, I enjoyed the week trying out Bosal products as well as the Clover Fabric Tube Maker. What would I do differently? Lots, but then again, as this was a learning week I did learn some things. I can see how using a fusible Bosal foam stabilizer made inserting the inner bag into the larger bag easier. While doing the whole process, I came up with a couple of other ways to maybe attempt to bag another bag. I know for sure I’ll make another mat; one that’s so much bigger for my studio floor where my cutting table is. I can see it now – so colorful. Products to make making easy Before I end this post, I invite everyone to go see all the different sizes that Bosal products are sold in. This week I used a package of 18” x 58”. They’re also available in a 36” x 58” size and 58” x 15 yards. Think of all the projects you can make with these products, not just bags, and they’re so easy to use! Thanks for following along.

After moving to Ottawa in 1996, I joined my first guild. I took more courses and began to buy quilting books and lots of fabrics. Quilting has become my passion. I have made over 150 more quilts since then, and have never looked back. I now share my knowledge of quilting by teaching and doing presentations, and blogging! previous post Heirloom, OLFA, and Omnigrid: The right brands for the right quilting tools next post Husqvarna Viking Tribute 150C and the Circular Attachment YOU MAY ALSO LIKE...
