I would have liked to have seen the pictures of the other bags to be made on the cover, so when buying on line one had more idea of the content.
However I was not at all disappointed. An excellent book.
The instructions are clear and the step by step photos are well put together.
The bags in the pictures are all very well made and look quite professional, they are really inspiring!
I really do love this book and it's great to be able to sew and quilt something which is practical but also achievable in a weekend!
This book is beautifully illustrated and the instructions are clear. I think it would have been better to have had some of the other pictures on the cover as well, not just the one bag, to give an indication of the variety of projects. Along with another reviewer I am unlikely ever to make the backpack but that may be just the sort of challenge an experienced quilter would like to take on. This book is well worth the money (around £7). Another reviewer mentioned that you have to increase the patterns by 125% or more but this is easy to do on a photocopier at a library, the assistant will help you.
I'm an experienced sewer but the instructions are so thorough and logical that I am sure an inexperienced person could follow them easily and get a great sense of achievement by working through the projects as they increase in difficulty. The first section looking at equipment/materials/techniques is logical and concise and gives all the information you need to get started. Each project is introduced, the first requirement is the number of fat quarters used and there are plenty of tips and hints or more precise advice about how to achieve best results. Each project includes a small purse/book bag/pochette either to use up materials or practise the pattern which is such a good idea.
Susan has also included advice about alternative fabric choices and selecting the appropriate fabric from the bundle for use in the main bag or for the binding. There are plenty of illustrations, the ones illustrating working stages are very clear and those with the fabric ideas are colourful and fun but not intrusive, everything is very well laid out.
There is nothing in this book that I would not make and only one project that I would adapt slightly before making to fit my personal preference so a very useful addition to my bookshelf.
