Bag-E-Bottoms: Perfect Bag Support

Tired of the bag sag? Bag-E-Bottoms are like under-wires for your bag! Whether you are working with fabric, yarn or another soft medium, these Bottoms are perfect to give your bag a little hidden support.

Bag-E-Bottom acrylic bases are available in six sizes to give soft crafted bag, purse and tote creations a sturdy bottom. The Bottoms are 1/8″ thick clear acrylic, with rounded corners and are available in a variety of sizes to fit common bag proportions. Choose a size slightly smaller than the inside bottom of a bag, toss it in and fill your purse.

Our newest addition is the Bag-E-Bottoms Size F.

The Bag-E-Bottoms are always optional with our Lazy Girl Designs patterns. They 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. I used color in the image below to show the different sizes.

Size F fills the huge gap between our two smallest sizes, B and A. We have six sizes that work with many of our designs.

How To Choose
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
It is recommended to create a fabric sleeve, much like a small pillowcase, and insert the Bottom. Each Bottom includes directions for making a sleeve. If you like, tack the sleeve to the inside bottom of your favorite bag. And better yet, these Bag-E-Bottoms may fit bags by other designers too! Many knitters place our bottoms in their knit creations during felting so the bag can shape to the Bottom.
