Review

The secret to a great handmade bag? It's in the details - zippered pockets, magnetic closures and adjustable straps that make a bag organized and comfortable to carry. Lisa Lam knows bag construction inside and out, and has loaded this book with beautiful, easy-to-follow how-to's. Even beginners will be lining, piping and installing hardware in no time! If you'd love to make your own bags but the process seems too complicated, you should meet Lisa Lam. She's been de-mystifying bag construction for years. In this book, she'll walk you though making useful, beautiful totes, backpacks and purses, with clear photos and helpful tips along the way. Without Lisa Lam, I would never have learned to install a flush zip pocket. She not only knows bag construction inside and out, she has a gift of being able to explain complex sewing processes in simple, friendly language. --Diane Gilleland, CraftyPod.com
