    • Iron the base panel of the polyester lining fabric.

    • Place the lining fabric on top of the desired fabric.

    • Pin the liner and new fabric panel together, so that the 'right sides' of the fabric are facing outwards.

    • Set your machine to the longest stitch length (usually 5 mm), and the loosest thread tension.

    • Not every machine will allow you to adjust the thread tension. If yours allows you to adjust it, set it to zero.

    • Sew the layers together with a 1/4" seam allowance.

    • Pin the lining and new fabric base so that it is centered on the thick side of the backpack.

    • Using a zipper foot, sew the new fabric base and liner to the thick side of the backpack.

    • Be careful to align the corners of the base to the corners of the backpack.

    • Make note of how much larger the fabric base is in comparison to the remaining 3 sides of the backpack.

    • Using a contrasting-colored thread, hand-sew along the corners of the base fabric.

    • Tighten the contrasting threads to bunch up the corners until they fit snug into the corners of the backpack.

    • Pin the remaining 3 sides of the base with to the 3 sides of the backpack.

    • Sew along the remaining three sides.

    • Be extra careful around the corners to avoid any hard creases or folds.

    • Seam-rip the contrasting color thread.

    • Trim down any fabric that exceeds 1/4" seam allowance, particularly around the corners.

    • Turn the backpack right side out.

    • Look along the new seam for any of the stitches that hold the lining and base fabric together, and remove them.

    • Pin the binding around the bottom seam, so that it sandwiches the seam allowance.

    • Allow one end of the binding to remain loose.

    • Starting with the pinned end of the binding, carefully sew about 1/10" away from the end of the binding.

    • When you reach the loose end of the binding, connect the end that you already sewed with the loose end.

    • Sew both ends together.
