Detailed instructions, great projects
on 30 December 2011
When I opened this book I found a 2 page spread of images of bags that are in the book and fell in love! Fresh modern designer fabrics are used and the image showed several bags I would love to own. There are 12 bag projects in the book with full size pattern pieces provided for each. You also get several pages of instructions and colourful hand drawn diagrams plus photos to guide you to make each bag. I like the hand drawn sketches, they bring a unique style to the book.
The projects are categorised by difficulty so that if you are new to bag making you can work your way through from the start and gain skills & confidence as you progress. The instructions are very detailed and the steps split down for making each section of the bag, making this book ideal for beginners as well as more experienced sewists.
As well as your standard handbags and day to day bags you also have a nappy bag, a laptop bag plus a backpack included in the book. Enough projects to keep you busy for quite some time.
