Im making a fold over clutch and am currently trying to line it. the instructions say " pin the lining to the exterior fabric, pin and place and sew around the outside right sides together" when i do this, the flap gets caught in the lining. i have tried tucking the flap in and doing some googling for other methods, but nothing seems to work.
Help please!

    I place the right side of the bag to the right side of the lining, and sew all round, leaving enough of a gap up one side to turn it through, if it’s soft enough. Then I fold the bottom section up and hand stitch the sides closed, using a double thread.

    If the outer is very stiff, I turn in the edges of the outer fabric over the stiffening and fix it down (iron-on glue tape is good for this). I then turn in the edges of the lining and slip-stitch it to the outer. Then proceed as above…

    I usually find it much easier to hand sew and hand finish bags like this.

    IF you try some other stuff , Its good, some time hand sewing works better.
