Yesterday's progress ...
I used the bag as felted and didn't bother to resize it, just eased in the fullness as best as possible when sewing in the lining.
Now it's fully lined with a zipper closure and one divider/pouch. I didn't use the buckram stiffener in the bottom nor the dowel inserts at the top edge. Instead, I used one piece of Flexi-Firm to line the front/bottom/back - sewn directly to the lining before attaching inside.
Also, the strap is made in one piece, (knit I-cord,) but both ends split and attach to the top edge along front and back.
