Review

With full details of the tools and materials required as well as techniques and advice with the details of the embroidery stitches, this is an exquisite book. The designs and templates include a birdcage box, a beautiful heart purse, and clutch purses, and much more. We loved it! Highly Recommended!-Hot Brands, Cool Places The vintage trend is still going strong and this collection of cute clasp purses and darling handbags by Sandrine Kielt-Michaud offers the opportunity to learn a new skill of sewing onto purse frames, to create simple or sophisticated gifts for friends or to keep yourself.-Pretty Patches This delightful book contains full-size patterns for making 19 pretty purses in a range of styles to suit all tastes. Basic sewing skills would be an advantage but both beginner and the more experienced could achieve pleasing results using the details instructions offered. Excellent value for money.-East Kent Embroiderer's Guild What a lovely book! A girl can never have too many purses and this title will fulfi l all those needs. Choose from 19 vintage-style projects to create evening bags, spectacle cases, coin purses and even small sewing kits. The projects use metal purse frames and there is a useful guide on how to handle these. Many of the projects include pretty hand embroidery and all are beautifully illustrated and with full instructions and templates. Why not start making some gifts for later in the year?-Sewing World The book is well written & easy to understand. Photos are beautiful & well placed. Its a great addition to my other craft books & will be used reguarly. I will dip in as I need new purse for a night out or just because I feel like making something. Whats not to like?! - Customer Review

Gorgeous sewing ideas in my opinion. The book comes with good paper quality. Photos are 'yummy' and make you want to start sewing right away! Some ideas plus choices of fabric are a bit different and unique from usual. From feminine to Gothic, the choice is yours! There are 19 projects to choose from, i.e. glasses case, mobile case, jewellery box, sewing kit and the rest are 15 different ideas of clasp purses. Useful tips and techniques for a novice especially. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. The sewing patterns are in full size which is bonus. Among my favourites are, Pretty Heart Purse, Bird Cage and Kokeshi. All in all, an excellent book!

For anyone that loves sewing and in particular likes new ideas for making gifts this book is a must have. I have many books and this is my favourite. There are many patterns and instructions for purses, bags and accessories such as a glasses case and a sewing case. Many are for embroidered patterns but don't let that put you off if embroidery is not your thing. I intend to use the patterns with pretty fabric and to not do the embroidery. Just follow the patterns and fabulous ideas to create stunning presents as well as accessorise your own wardrobe.

This book is full of pretty pictures but if you have never made a purse before the instructions are basic. I would have liked to see pictorial step by step instructions.

Whilst you need specific bag hardware for each project, with a pen and a copy of the pattern it isn't difficult to adapt to what supplies you can get hold of although no guidance given on how to do that
