I'd pretty much do what xwordphile said. Though, I'd probably sew it all the way around the top edge when attaching to the bag, just because I know that if I didn't, I'd end up getting things caught between the bag and the liner. I prefer bags that zip accross the top, so I would do the following:Measure the fabric for the liner to be just slightly smaller than the interior of the bag (turn the bag inside out and measure the inside "walls"). Be sure to leave yourself about 1/2 inch all the way around (you'll use that for sewing the seams). You may consider leaving and extra inch along the top edge for the zipper, you can always trim it later. Once you have the lining cut out, attach the zipper FIRST along the top edge with the RIGHT side of the zipper facing the WRONG side of the fabric. LEAVE THE ZIPPER UNZIPPED (you'll see why at the end). Put the WRONG SIDES of the lining fabric together, line up edges and pin, and then sew all the way around. Snip the corners of the fabric off, being careful not to cut too close to the stitching, turn right side in (this is why you need to leave the zipper undone), set into bag and sew along top edge. This gets you a zippered lining with the right side of the fabric on the inside of the bag, where you get to see it.
