Description

This easy-to-use beginner's sewing book contains 20 stylish and contemporary bag designs, from tote bags and box bags, to a courier bag, a sports bag and a bowling bag. A range of techniques, styles, fabrics and finishes is used to ensure that you can create exactly the bag you want.

The projects are interspersed with 20 step-by-step techniques so that you can treat the book as a course and work through it in order, trying out the techniques as you go, or simply pick and choose your favourite styles. Each of the bags is graded 'beginner level', 'intermediate level' or 'confident' to help you.

The projects and techniques are explained with a mix of photographs and illustrations to provide the clearest possible instruction. All the pattern pieces required are given at full size on the pull-out template sheet at the back of the book.
