Portside Dopp Kit: Attaching the Lining

Today we’ll be inserting the lining of our bag. To do this requires a bit of hand sewing so get out those hand needles and a thimble if you have one and lets get to it!

To begin turn the shell of the dopp inside out and the lining right side out. Place the shell inside the lining.

Align the edge of the lining around the zipper evenly as shown. Pin in place and get out that needle and thread.

Slipstitch the lining to the zipper, making sure you don’t go through to the bag shell. I doubled up my thread for this application for extra strength because I can be pretty rough on things, but if you’re a more gentile human than I, feel free to use one strand of thread.

Work your way around the opening of the bag, knotting off your thread when you’re done. Your bag is now lined!

Flip it right side out and arrange the lining into the bottom of the bag. We’re almost done, just the zipper pulls left. Unless you’re omitting those, in that case then you’re done!
