The bags in this book draw inspiration from the 20s-50s - with 20 projects are suitable for all levels and there are four matching purse designs that can be adapted to any bag. Patterns and seam allowances are also included. Patterns for all the bags are included and all have seam allowances added already so that the book is not just inspirational, it's practical too. The bags are made from easily acquired cost-effective materials using straightforward techniques and come in a range of beautiful shapes that give them a really stunning and unique look. Designs range in skill level, so if you are new to the craft you can start simply, then move on to gradually more challenging designs as your ability increases and your creativity blossoms.
