I have the Bag Making Bible (which I think is fantastic and I do tell everyone that) so I am curious to see what's new in the new book - I'm still working on things in the first book! Will the new book cover the any of the same ground or be a volume 2 'follow-on of the bible? Why is this one hardback when the other one is paperback? I know you are busy because you haven't been back on your blog since January - hope you and the bump are well - so I may have to wait and see!

Hi Housemouse,

Sorry there aren't metal handles or frames in this book, because there simply wasn't room after everything else. But you will find lots of info on different style of zips and zip pockets and how to make your own piping and how to use piping (and loads more!). Thanks for your very kind words.

Will the book have information/instructions on how to construct bags with metal handles such as evening bags or clutch bags? Also inserting
zips and piping. I am looking forward to your book, as I believe you are a designer with integrity, I have many bag making books but many of them fail to hit the spot.

No worries! This is just how I've laid my book out. As you'll see I've explained how make and create the different parts of a bag - step by step. Stuff like linings, fasteners, interfacing choices, fabric choices (and lots more) each has it's own dedicated chapter and each chapter ends with a yummy bag project that uses the techniques contained in that chapter. I hope that sounds good! :)

Thanks heaps. I promise you this bag making book has a different approach to all of the other bag making books out there - and that's kinda exciting in itself! :)

I need to know EVERYTHING!! I can sew dresses from patterns - even made my own wedding dress. But bags I have never done. I am not the most confident person so I'm looking for a how to that explains everything from selecting the right fabric, inserting zips and magnetic clasps, selecting the lining, interfacings, etc I need someone to hold my hand and guide me through basically!!

Hey AnaBea!

Thanks for starting up a discussion!

I can confirm that there are clear instructions on how to insert pleats into your bags. I've explained it in such a way that you can insert those pleats in the way that you want to (i.e. peats of your chosen size, chosen number and on your own bag). And yep there are heaps more bag making techniques to be found inside the book :)

I really love making bags but don't always know how to make 'fun' bits such as pleats and other cool features. This sounds like it'll tell me how to do it - Lisa's website is great but I reckon the book will have LOADS more of her genius tutorials!
