5.0 out of 5 stars best bags
Cheryl Owe is such a versatile author. Here she tackles bags with a vengeance. This is a superb selection of 30 bags with easy to follow instructions, good step by step photographs and templates. The styles include purses, handbags, shoppers, drawstring bags, duffle bag, beach bag and more. The handbags include day and evening styles. The instructions at the beginning...

1.0 out of 5 stars What a pity!
i bought this book and was so disappointed that the patterns in the back of the book are not to full scale. In order to use them you will have to enlarge them on a photocopier. Not only that but the
patterns have to be increased by different amounts some by 30% and some by 40%, on the same page so a bit of a fuss.

1.0 out of 5 stars Although this book had a few nice bags the templates were not good at all, 6 Feb. 2015

This review is from: The Book of Bags: 30 Stylish projects for Beautiful Sewn Bags (Paperback)
Although this book had a few nice bags the templates were not good at all. They were all printed at different sizes and needed enlarging on a photocopier but it was unclear by how much. There are better bag books to buy.

Lots of good 'one off' bags to make you stand out of the crowd. Very good descriptions and diagrams to follow and still leaves the maker scope to personalize the bag.

This review is from: The Book of Bags: 30 Stylish projects for Beautiful Sewn Bags (Paperback)
Nice book. Lots of lovely bag designs. Patterns at back need enlarged and I'm not sure how to go about this, I don't think it explains how in the book but maybe I've just not found that bit yet. Instructions on how to make the bags look good, and there are nice clear pictures.
Look forward to getting my sewing machine out and being creative.
Good value for money.
