Bag-E-Bottoms: Perfect Bag Support
Lightweight acrylic stabilizer and bag bottoms are perfect to give your fabric, yarn or soft textile bag a little hidden support and professional finish.
Tired of the bag sag? Bag-E-Bottoms are like under-wires for your bag! These lightweight acrylic Bottoms are perfect to stabilize your fabric, yarn or another soft textile bag a little hidden support. We invest a lot of time, love, energy, and money into our beautiful bag creations. They deserve to look their best and a good bag stabilizer is worth investing in.
Bag-E-Bottom acrylic bases are available in several sizes to give soft textile bag, purse and tote creations a sturdy bottom. The lightweight Bottoms are thin clear acrylic with rounded corners sized to fit common bag proportions. Choose a size slightly smaller than the inside bottom of a bag, toss it in and fill your purse.
The Bag-E-Bottoms work with our Lazy Girl Designs patterns to offer support from the bottom up, giving your bag great stand-up-i-tude and posture.

So, here they are, all stacked so you can see who is who in the Bottom game. The image is not full size. The bottoms are clear acrylic, protected with blue poly masking on both sides. Simply peel the blue poly from each side and rest inside your bag on top of the lining fabric.

How To Choose The Right Size
Our patterns note which size to use with each bag. To use with other bags, measure the bottom of your bag creation: length and width. The inside of your bag will be slightly smaller than the outside bottom measurements. Choose the largest size that is smaller than both measurements of your bag bottom.
How To Use In A Bag
It is recommended to create a fabric sleeve, much like a small pillowcase, and insert the Bottom. Choose a fabric to coordinate or blend with the lining fabric. Place a Bottom inside a knit bag during the felting process to shape the bag to the Bottom.

Oh those will make the bags looks so much well done. It will give it support and stability.
What a great product! This will make our bags look so much more polished and hand-crafted rather than homemade. Can’t wait to check my patterns, see what sizes I’ve got to have and get some “in the house”!
Wow! Fantastic I can’t wait until my bags no longer have a baggie bottom! I’ll have to blog on it over at basicallyquilting.blogspot.com
The first bag I learned to make in a class I did not not know what a bag-e-bottom was. I was told to have cut a size . I took the measurents home and gave them to my husband and he cut me one. Took it back to class and put it in. I was asked where I bought it at. I said Home Depot and my husband made for me. He now makes all mine for whatever bag I make. I have bought some bag-e-bottoms. But my husband does a good job for me.
What a wonderful idea! Is there something available that you could cut down to use for other designs? That would be nice. I love putting something in the bottom of bags. I have tried plastic canvas, that didn’t work very well. In my really big totes, I have had my husband cut out think plywood and round the corners, but that really wouldn’t work for purses.
I have purchesd the whimsy Bag pattern and I am having a problem with the finishing/ that is Sewing the side seems after turinng the bag inside out–can you help me with this?
Thats great ! who likes bags that are baggy at the bottom;) The instructions are very easy to follow thank you for sharing that one.
What about bags that are oval shaped, is the rectangle shape ok?
My daughter made a large tote for me and it would need a 5X 17 bottom. Do you know of anyone who would made that?
