Sewing straps and bottom of bag
I will be sewing on the straps and bottom of the bag Im knitting and I was wondering if there is a way to sew it on that insures the straps wont come off or the bottom of the bag wont fall out? The bag will be a large felted bag. I've never sewn yarn before and I dont know if there is a special way you sew things or not. Thanks.

Jess

If all of it is seamed together before felting, the felting process will help the pieces to really stay together - moreso than just the seaming itself. The bottom will not fall out, nor will the straps come loose if the bag is thoroughly felted.
