Product Description

About the Author

Jenny Rolfe has been interested in sewing for as long as she can remember; as a child her mother taught her how to make her own doll's clothes. Jenny taught herself traditional patchwork and quilting in the 1970s and then learnt about design by studying for a City and Guilds qualification at Tresham Institute, Kettering. She has received many awards for her quilts and hangings which have been exhibited both at home and abroad. She now teaches and gives workshops around the country. Jenny lives with her husband and dogs in Fleckney in Leicestershire.

A great book for everyone who wants to make individual handbags for gifts or their own use. There are colour photos throughout showing various colourways for individual projects. Instructions are clear and follow a logical process with accompanying photos.

Although I've made a few bags I've not tried machine embroidery yet so I bought this book hoping it would show me how to get started - and wow! It offers so much more! The bag designs themselves are imaginative and easy to make, the colour step-by-step closeup photographs, rather than diagrams, are really helpful, and I now feel confident about trying out the techniques for myself. It's great to see photos too of variations on each project, because it's often quite difficult to mentally visualise something done in different colours or in different fabrics.

I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who's feeling a bit hesitant about taking the first steps towards machine embroidery, but even if you don't want to do that, the bag patterns could just as easily be made unadorned.

As a crafty person, I loved this book. The techniques are easy, and really allow you to experiment with your own colour and finishing techniques. Will use for a long time!

I bought this book after reading the reviews left by others. I am certainly delighted with it. I am doing a City and Guilds Level 2 in machine embroidery and this book is pitched just at the right level for me, it shows how to go about machine embroidry and some great filling stitches - that's before you get to the bag patterns themselves. The patterns are exciting and different with lots of scope for you to take them forward with your own ideas. Loads of colour photos help to make sense of the techniques - just buy it!

This book from Search Press has good clear instructions for making a range of small decorative handbags. The text and layout is very clear and practical, with good illustrations. A good introduction to what can become an addictive hobby!

Wonderful book! Full of really helpful advice and practical `tips'. The ideal book for both those who like to follow a design and those who are ready to create their own pieces.
