Reviews

Library Journal USA

While most bag-sewing books focus on traditional handbags and purses, this collection curated by Conner (Modern Bee) and MacKay features totes and organizers suitable for a variety of purposes. With designs ranging from an infinity-style scarf with a zipped pocket to a wine bottle tote to a single-strap backpack, theres a bag to suit most styles and needs. The authors organize the bags into easy, intermediate, and advanced projects based on the skills required, and tutorials on basics such as making straps and adding closures are included. Sewists interested in refining their bag-making skills can work through the book in order, learning along the way. The directions are straightforward, and the work is divided into components, making the process user-friendly. Pattern pieces are included on a pull-out sheet. VERDICT Crafters who enjoy books by Sara Lawson (Big-City Bags) and Anna Graham (Handmade Style) will appreciate this eclectic collection.

15 great ideas for keeping everything stored and in its place whilst you travel around. Projects are organized by skill level and there is a good basic techniques section. The book includes a laptop cover, bag insert, stroller caddy, organizers, totes, bags, sling, art case and more, even an unusual scarf with a zipper pocket. I would make that so that the zipper is concealed and on the inside for safety. Learn how to cut, pattern piece, do curved corners, use interfacings, make straps and closures, do piping and more. This book has great designs, tips and techniques as well as clear instructions, photographs and patterns. I like the tablet shoulder bag, art case and airport sling and the cover backpack pattern is my favourite.
