Format: Hardcover
The bags are attractive but the instructions are not easy to follow. I made the 'rice sack' bag, and I'm a fairly experienced sewer, but the pictures did not make it easy to understand what the structure of the bag would be when completed - and if you aren't clear exactly what you're aiming for, it's quite difficult to follow the step-by-step instructions. Diagrams showing how the bag will look when assessmbled would have been helpful.

Format: Hardcover
Good presentation and photos, lots of different bags, predominantly with a quilting hobbyist as the intended user of the bag ( i.e. bags are titled ' quilter's briefcase' and so on, meant to be used as receptacles for quilting equipment). I couldn't help noticing that although the title states 21 bags, there are in actual fact only 13 different styles, the rest being variations using different fabrics.

I found the step by step photos and the patchwork diagrams very helpful. The Rice Sack Bag is one of the more challenging bags in the book, maybe requiring a bit of lateral thinking (!), but the instructions are easy to follow. Projects like the Envelope Bag and the Double Bottle Bag are simple and fun. There is ample scope for adapting the bags with your own choice of quilt blocks, fabrics etc. - indeed, the author encourages this. Plenty here for beginners through to more experienced quilters/stitchers who are looking for something different.

I bought 2 of these books one for myself and one for a friend. We particularly liked the fan purse, having seen it made up at the Patchwork and Quilting class we go to. I have also made the Envelope Bag several times. It makes a lovely gift, and quite easy to do.

An excellent book with inspirational photos. Projects range from simple to the positively challenging - something for all skill levels. I have made both the rice sack bag and the quilters' briefcase and they get used all the time.
