25 Stylish Bags to Sew in An AfternoonBook - 2008
Handbags are hotter than ever - but so are their designer price tags. There s never been a better time to sew your own fashionable bags and it has never been easier with designer Megan Avery as your teacher. In Bag Bazaar, Avery presents 25 bags that even a sewing newbie can handle, in a variety of styles sure to match any look. For years, Avery has hosted bag-making workshops in her boutique. Here she shares her expert advice as well as the blueprints for her most popular designs. Beginning with a guide to basic sewing techniques, Avery then features patterns for bags that range from funky to sophisticated, from a roomy backpack to a pleated clutch. Also included are patterns for specialty bags such as an eco-friendly grocery tote, a laptop sleeve and a garment bag. Need extra pockets or longer handles? All of the patterns are completely customisable. Every design is accompanied by a hip, modern illustration and - best of all - Avery offers all the encouragement and know-how you need to invent your own unique creations. Bag Bazaar shows you how to create the perfect, custom accessory - in less time than it would take to shop for one.
