Handmade Handbags

A fabulously simple and easy to follow guide to inspire you to create your own one off masterpieces.Highly Recommended

Cool ideas!

There are a lot of cool ideas in this book, along with 30 bag patterns for you to follow. In addition to traditional fabric handbags, here are several "wire bag" designs in this book.Written by professional accessory designers, this book is full of clever and innovative ideas. However, in spite of the creativity, I did not find many bags I would actually make. However, it is well written with many good sewing tips. It even includes a fully illustrated section on hand-sewing which I found very useful.If nothing else, this is a good "idea book".

Very Cool Book

"Handmade Bags" has some really great project ideas. It starts out with the basics - supplies, sewing for beginners, etc. and then moves on to the projects (which have whimsical names like "Red, red rose" and "Gilded cage"). There are 30 professional looking project ideas - all with great illustrations and detailed instructions. Some of the projects use some interesting materials, however I was disappointed that there were a couple of "knitting with wire" bags - that's just not my thing.Although most of the patterns seem pretty straight forward, they are small grid illustrations - meaning you can't take the book to the copy machine and enlarge - you have to use traditional tailoring methods/measuring/etc. to scale up the pattern. For people who have never sewn, I would advise getting "Making Handbags" by the folks from FIT first and then use this book for additional creative ideas and techniques.
