2.0 out of 5 stars A bag for All Reasons, 22 Aug 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Bag for All Reasons: 12 all-new bags and purses to sew for every occasion (Spiral-bound)
I waited a while before I bought A Bag for All Reasons after reading all the reviews that are posted I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted to buy it. I have the first book by Lisa and I really enjoyed the book. However I have to say I'm disappointed with A Bag for All Reasons. I think out of all the new patterns I will probably only make two!! I don't want to make a baby changing mat or the bike bag carrier! The clutch bag is quite basic and I think most people who can sew and make items don't need a pattern to make a laundry bag! I really don't think it's worth money, I feel quite cheated, I was looking forward to new designs for handbags that would be interesting. I put the book down for a while and recently came back to it but I'm afraid I'm still not interested. I do understand why Lisa duplicated all the instructions at the beginning of the book - if you don't already own the first book then you would need this info or if you didn't want two books out at the same time all the information is there again.

The market is flooded with bag making books now and there really are far better books around than A Bag for All Reasons. I'm sorry that I'm so disappointed with the book after looking forward to it for so long. If you don't have the Bag making Bible just get that one, it has all the instructions you need to be able to all bag designs that are around now.
