The open crochet stitch creates holes in the finished bag. By lining each one, small items stay secure in the bouquet bag and is gives it more body. Choose a matching or complimentary piece of fabric if you decide to line your project. Sew two small pieces, cut to the size of the bag plus a seam allowance with right sides facing. Tuck the lining into the bag and turn under a small hem. Using a needle and thread, whip stitch the lining to the crochet bag. Take notice that I stitched just below the handle area.
