I am so thrilled with the book I have immediately ordered it for my needleworking daughter!
I would highly recommend to all levals of skill and will certianly be looking for any other books by this author.
She has tried a couple of the simple bags from scratch and has done well to make them. In fairness to the book and her she is very good with sewing and dressmaking and did not find any problems understanding the instructions and suggestions.
There is a very good selection of styles made out of a wide range of materials for all occasions. The instructions are clear, precise and easy to follow with lots of illustrations and photos. The patterns do need to be enlarged from A4 to A3 but that is no great problem. Anyone with a basic knowledge of sewing can make a great looking bag in a couple of evenings.
I rummaged around my sewing supplies and found that I had all the materials I needed (except a zip) to make the bag shown on the front cover.
I loved this book and instead of sending flowers to a niece who has just had a major op, I sent her a copy. She loved it as well.

The fact that all the patterns have to be enlarged is a real problem for me and having managed to find a friend to do one for me I then found the instructions not clear enough.Published 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
