I can t really put my finger on why I like bags so much, I just like them. So, when I saw this book on bags with it s intriguing title, I knew I wanted it. I have the ebook version of Bags, The Modern Classics by Sue Kim. I like having the ebook version. At first, I thought I would miss having the actual book to hold. But, I like that it isn t taking up space on a bookshelf, that I can have a copy with me anytime my laptop is with me, and that I am being green . There are 19 different projects in this book, each neatly divided into categories. There are Small Bags, Clutches and Large Bags. There are several (if not all) of the bags that I plan to make! The instructions are very well written and there are photo illustrations for most of the steps. It has very easy to understand directions for each bag. The patterns are all at the back of the book. Since I had the ebook, I wondered how well that would work, but I printed out the pattern for my first project last night and it printed just fine. I think it might actually be easier than keeping up with pattern pieces that you tear out of the back of books. The small bags section has a pencil case, a case for your sunglasses, a wallet, and an adorable wristlet. Everyone of these projects would come in handy for gifts and for your own personal use. I think I will HAVE to make the sunglasses case very soon! --Michelle Kitto; 7/13/2012
