Step Five

Fold ends right sides of matching fabric facing each other and sew along the edges up to zipper. Pinch corners and sew perpendicularly to create gusset at the base. Repeat with lining except leave a small opening to turn the entire bag right side out through. No worries if you forget the opening, that’s what seam rippers are for!
