Making Vintage Bags: 20 Original Sewing Patterns for Vintage Bags and Purses
Making Vintage Bags: 20 Original Sewing Patterns for Vintage Bags and Purses
by Emma Brennan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

1.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but notnecessarily workable, 14 Mar 2010
I was so excited when I recieved this that I couldnt wait to get sewing. I reproduced the pattern faithfully as instructed at 165% and was dismayed to discover that the bag I created looked beautiful but you could barely get your hand through the opening,(and I have very slim hands.) My purse certainly wouldnt fit in! It is a real disappointment - a bit like a flashy cookery book where the recipes dont work!
oh well - another waste of money

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed, 25 May 2008
This review is from: Indian Food Made Easy (Paperback)
I had such high hopes for this book. having been taught how to cook the real thing by mums of my asian friends i love the proper food as opposed to the curries churned out at the local curry house. this book has not inspired me and i feel flat having really looked forward to it being delivered. the series on tv was much more exciting.
for really good asia/india food recipes get one of the curry club books - a gazillion times better!
