A Bag for Every Skill Level, Every Occasion, Every Style
Bag designs that you'll love to sew!
With full instructions for twelve bags - and with a few clever variations thrown in - there are plenty of designs to choose from (20 total projects)! Pick a handbag that is sweet, sleek, or funky. Or check out some of the other great designs: a flirty little backpack, the perfect lunch bag, convenient shopping bags and handy task-oriented bags (whether that task involves a laptop, gym clothes, or diapers). Each design is easy to adapt to your style.
Check out the technique section, which includes step-by-step photos, to freshen up your skills and learn about a few new notions, too. Next, move on to the projects to put your know-how in motion.
Flip to the Simple Bags for something quick and fun to sew. And even though these bags are easy to make, the end results are clever and cute.
Step it up in the Intermediate Bags section, with bags that play up your style. Learn a few new skills, try out a few new tools and make yourself a bag you can really show off.
The Challenging Bags section takes you to the level of bag maven. The bags' construction may be complex, but the instructions are not. Sew it together step by step, and find yourself with a truly professional, beautifully constructed bag.
The bags in this book are truly extraordinary - and with Kay's instruction, they are oh-so-easy to make. Hardback book includes 12 unique designs and 20 project variations on 6 full-size paper pattern sheets!
