Description

New from Debbie Shore, this is a brand new bag-making series with a difference!

The 15 tote bag designs are created using the rigid plastic templates contained within the book; these two easy-to-use templates are durable, reusable, wipe-clean and perfect for fussy cutting, plus they are simple to position and use there is no need to pin them. 

The 15 tote bags are each made using different techniques, pockets, straps and fastenings, to create 15 very different results. The templates can also be used for your own further design variations, as you mix and match the techniques covered within the book; Debbie gives advice on how to adapt and create your own unique designs. Each project in the book is explained using Debbie’s trademark style and step-by-step photography, and there is also a comprehensive techniques section and a guide to using the templates.

I always get excited when Debbie Shore brings out a new book. The 'Build A Bag' series is absolutely amazing. A brand new concept that is both original and simple, the 15 projects are stunning. The book and the reusable templates come in a folder and can be removed for easier usage. As always, the projects are beautifully presented and the instructions are simple to follow.  the step by step instructions come in both a visual and written format, and with additional hints and tips they can be adapted and embellished to your own design. Each project has a coloured diagram to show what piece of template to use. For both a beginner and an advanced sewist, this is one book that will be forever loved. The bags as you would expect are amazing, and all are absolutely useful. I can imagine my friends are going to love them. They are a perfect gift idea. The only problem is knowing which to sew first!!
