Simply the best
on 19 October 2009
With so many rave reviews, I was almost preparing myself for disappointment when I bought this book. I have to say it is wonderful and I am totally delighted with it.
Clean printing, accessible layout, good quality paper and fully illustrated, it is a joy to look at. And even better, it is a joy to use. There are instructions, colour photographs and patterns for twenty bags and all the fiddly bits are clearly explained. The patterns are in template form and need to be enlarged; I think this is much better than a separate envelope of tissue-paper patterns which easily get torn or lost. It is not a hardship to file the photocopied paper patterns for another time, together with your ideas of how to change the look with different embellishments/fabrics.
I made the 'Virginia' clutch bag first and have not found such a trouble-free project anywhere. Bag-making, here I come!
