Make the gusset and sew the bottom
Just cut off the seams at the top of the handles and the bottom seam. A note about pressing: Do it. And take your time about it. In this case, it’s the fabric with the chickens on it. Pin all the way around, leaving the top of th Hollister Canada e handles open. Match up the curves. Leave them open for now. It will look rumply but we haven’t pressed yet. They’ll be right sides together if your bag is still inside out. You can see the gussets on the sides but the handles on the top are still really wide.
Turn the bag inside out so the lining fabric is on the outside. To make the gussets, fold the sides of the bag over towards the center as illustrated. Pin Hollister Canada the bottom so it won’t slip when you sew. It might seem coun Hollister Canada terintuitive to fold the bag this way but when you right the bag and push the corners out, you’ll have perfect gussets. Be careful to fold so that the handles are folded just shy of the Hollister Canada halfway point. If you make the folds too large, the inside corner of your bag will show out of the top. Not a tragedy but goofy looking and irritating if you’re a perfectionist like I am.
