Not just pretty pictures !!!!,
This review is from: The Bag Making Bible: The Complete Guide to Sewing and Customizing Your Own Unique Bags (Paperback)
I love craft books - often for all of the pretty pictures of things I will never make........ This is not a book full of pretty pictures of things I will never make. It is thorough and informative. It is comprehensive and comprehensible. It is an absolute delight, and one of those reference books that will actually be USED not just flicked through. There are not lots and lots of projects, but there is lots and lots of information - enough to give you the confidence to do your own thing in addition to making the projects which are in the book.
Lisa Lam is a wonderful author - her blog is a delight and a constant source of entertainment and inspiration. I thought any book she wrote would be great, but this has surpassed my expectations. It is so very, very different from every other bag-making book I own and the word "bible" in the title is no over-statement.
This is a great book for all skill levels, and I really cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you Lisa !
