A couple of days ago I received a new book about handbags, written by Susan Dunlop and published by Martingale.
Susan has used my fabric lines Juggling Summer and Comma for some of her bags and was so kind to send me a copy.
Everyone from beginners to experts can create an assortment of modern, practical projects for gifts or personal use. Start with a simple, elegant handbag and progress to more challenging designs; skill-level ratings are included.
The book includes step-by-step illustrated patterns for 12 attractive projects in a variety of shapes and styles: A pleated clutch, market bag, satchel, and wallet
It also includes resource info and comprehensive how-to techniques; learn about tools, fabric prep, interfacings, linings, and purse hardware and the detailed instructions show you clearly the how-to.
I hope you enjoy the eye-candy as much as I did.
