All the sewing basics you need are here, and you will learn some more ambitious techniques such as stitching hook-and-loop tapes, making darts and pleats, and attaching magnetic snaps or zippers.
  • Make your own fashion statement with these sophisticated, runway-worthy bag designs
  • Each of the 19 projects has multiple variations for more than 75 different stylish ways to carry it all
  • Create perfectly polished bags in no time with easy construction techniques

“We’ve reviewed a number of top-notch books on bagmaking in the past few months, and this one, by Sue Kim, is right up there with the best of them. The two features that we think make it outstanding are the range of patterns and the quality of the instructions . . . an excellent choice for someone who is still building their bagmaking confidence and skills.” —Australian Homespun Magazine

“One of the books I most often recommend for beginners. Although these projects don’t feature a lot of bells and whistles (complicated hardware, multiple pockets, etc.), the clean, classic lines provide great jumping-off points for more advanced sewists to customize to their heart’s content.” —Beth Ann Williams, author of Celtic Quilts

“If you have never made a bag in your life Sue Kim will take you through the process step by step.” —Gable House & Co.
