Tutorial: a neat bag bottom

I made messenger bags for my nieces’ birthday from a pattern in One Yard Wonders. I like the bag’s bottom so much that I thought I’d share it here. 

 This is the piece of fabric for the bag (it’s one of the lining piece)
 Turn the fabric so that the wrong side is facing up
 Fold halfway
 Fold back again about one inch
Pin it in place
 So this is how it looks like, folded in 1 inch and pinned.

Then turn the piece over and do the same thing on the other side.
 So, you’d get something like this sandwiched in.
 You know you’re doing it right when the edges of the fabric are lined together.
 Then stitch through all the layers.
 Open the seam and press
Turn the bag inside out and TADA!!! You get this neat triangle at the bottom of the sides of the bag.
