5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book!! Don't listen to the negative reviews, 12 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book even after reading the negative reviews. I loved the designs that I could see in the preview, and I'm always ready to make another bag. After receiving the book, I would have to say that even if I did have Lisa's first book, I wouldn't have been upset about the repeated techniques. With the techniques section repeated in this book, it saved me from having to buy the first book, and then saved me from having to switch back and forth between books. I've found myself reading the book cover to cover just to learn the techniques and tips for each. I've tried different bags (not Lisa's) on occasion and might have been found chucking the project across the room and cursing because I couldn't get it to work right. After reading this, I'm excited to try them again. The bag designs in this book are wonderful and I'm now trying to find a reason to make each one. First up, the iPad case...
