Not only are there a nice variety of bags to make, the introductory is outstanding. It includes so many tips and tricks for making bags that can transfer to all sewing. Excellent. I do wish there had been more pictures in the introductory skills section, but the descriptions were very good.

This is an excellent book for learning to make purses. I highly recommend it!

This book is an excellent resource for both beginning and intermediate level sewers. Beginners will learn about selecting tools and materials for making bags and can start with a more basic pattern. Each pattern includes detailed text and photographs. As the book progresses the patterns become increasingly complex and introduce a new skill or technique that will help build confidence and skills. This book is unique in that it includes one "basic" pattern that readers learn to modify to suit each project.
