Lining a Chainmaille bag

Long time reader, first time poster here. Curious if anyone can direct me to a tutorial or ideas on how to add an interior lining to a chainmaille dice bag. Recently I was asked to make one with a velvet lining, and I'm coming up short on ideas on how to do that. I have made some attempts (which all look really hokey) and was hoping with the vast knowledge out there that someone could help me. Thanks in advance!

Here's how I do it. I sew a liner that has the inside dimensions of the bag, in my case a round bottom pouch, minus one row. Then I space eyelets around the top of the sewn bag - in this case the dice bag has 30 links around the top, and I've put in 10 eyelets...then I weave the liner into the bag one row below the top row (so that the liner doesn't interfere with the drawstring), so in this case every third ring in that row goes through an eyelet.

Doing dicebag liners is how I learned how to sew Smile

There are many types of velvet out there. If what you wish to use is the soft synthetic variety, you should strengthen the edges.
Adding eyelets is by far the most popular choice in adding maille to cloth.


Only one word can make me angry, and trust me dear, you can't pronounce it.

^This - a 3/8" - 1/2" strip of interfacing sewn (and/or fused) between the outer bag and inner liner is great for reinforcing the area where the eyelets will be placed. I usually use a crushed panne velvet for the outer bag and a higher end (not costume) satin for the inner. YMMV.
