Lisa Lam of U-Handbag brings you a stunning collection of sewing patterns to make your own bags. The book features 12 brand new bag designs with full photographic instructions for how to make a bag with truly professional results. The book features full size patterns on three separate pull-out sheets so that you can get started right away no photocopying or enlarging required. If you're new to sewing and bag making there are simpler projects such as the Compact Groceries Tote, All-Sorted Laundry Bag and Access-All-Areas Pouch to get you started before progressing to the more fully featured bags such as the Geek-Chic iPad Case and Too-Cool-for-School Satchel. All techniques are fully explained with step by step photographs, so you'll be creating professional, practical and great-looking bags before you know it!
