The Photographic Process of the Round Knot Purse (page 1 of 4) (An accompaniment to the Japanese Knot Purse tutorial available at http://www.mirkwooddesigns.com/projects/japanese-knot-purse.pdf)

The supplies for the round-bottomed Japanese knot purse. I used Easter fabrics so I could make this into a cute child’s Easter basket/purse.

I’ve sewn the sides from the bottom to the dot (marked on the pattern).

Here the lining and the outside are pinned and ready to sew. Note that the lining for the handle tops is folded down and pinned.

I forgot to take a photo of turning the bag rightside out, but all you do is pull it through one of the openings in the handle top. OK, so here is the Peltex rolled up and being inserted into one of the handle tops. Work it down so that it sits flat in the bottom of the bag. Once it’s in place, it’ll pretty much stay there!

Doesn’t this look neat? The Peltex really makes a nice, flat bottom.

Sew the handle tops together and hand stitch the openings closed.
