sorry for the confusion. so you want to turn one of the bags inside-out then put the other bag inside it so that the right sides of each bag are touching then sew all the way around leaving a small hole to turn the bags rightside out (you will stitch this small hole up by hand after) does this help?

I'm a bit confused on step 8, do we put one bag right side out IN a bag which is wrong side out?
