Great Photos & Designs
I love this book & hope to make most of the bags. I made 5 of the market tote bags, with Inkle band handles for xmas presents, which are so far well received. My only complaint is that the type size was so small on the pattern pages. I needed a magnifier to read some correctly. The directions are split up strangely as well, requiring a search for correct dimensions. My bags turned out more "unique" than not, probably a good thing!

sophisticated, elegant and fashionable bags
If you want to make bags with a sophisticated, elegant and fashionable edge then you''ll love this book. A refreshing change from the overly cute, trendy, boring make your own bag styles that have become popular in the last few years this book shows you how to create gorgeous boutique style bags. The Winter Tweed Boston bag has a snap frame closure and leather handle along with coordinating small purse making it perfect for a weekend trip. I love the clean, unobtrusive shape of the market day canvas tote, and the Cabana tote bag. You''ll also find a messenger bag, urban travel trunk and laptop bag pattern as well as patterns for everyday use bags such as the shoulder bag, wayfarer denim tote with coordinating zippered clutch and the Left Bank Granny bag with coordinating drawstring day bag. Just about all of the bag projects have a coordinating smaller project making the 20 projects that the book is named for much higher. The circle pochette bag that accompanies the business class laptop bag certainly can stand on it''s own as a bag project and you''ll probably end up making several of the book covers that go with the Cabana Tote bag. It''s the special touches that set these bag designs apart from the ones you typically find. Leather straps, eyelets, tassles on the zipper pulls, fabric covered buttons, purse feet, adjustable straps, and twist lock fasteners all give these bag designs an upscale, chic look. Another nice touch are the full sized pull out patterns included with the book. You''ll also find a tips and techniques section that will help you achieve professional polished results which each bag you make. Each project includes information about the fabric used as well a full materials list and finished project size. Review by Susan Bleiweiss (Posted on 10/6/2009)
