81sgam9ZX5L._AC_UY218_ML3_ Pub: Search Press

The 15 designs are created using the full-size rigid template contained within the book. It is easy-to-use, durable, reusable, wipe-clean and perfect for fussy cutting, plus it is simple to position and use there is no need to pin it.

The backpacks are made using different techniques, pockets, straps and fastenings to create 15 very different results. But why stop there? The template can also be used for your own design variations. As you mix and match the techniques covered within the book, Debbie gives advice on how to adapt and create your own unique designs.

Each project in the book is explained using Debbie s friendly style and easy-to-follow step-by-step photography, and there is also a comprehensive techniques section and a guide to using the template

 

My review 

There are now four pattern books in the Build a Bag series, each one containing a reusable plastic pattern and at least 15 projects.

The best thing about sewing with Debbie Shore is that she makes things so easy. From beginner to advanced skill levels, every stitcher can enjoy these books and create something wonderful.

The projects are beautifully photographed, and the instructions have a stunning visual and written step by step guide.

Techniques, tips and what to do if things go wrong are included and the whole process from start to finish is jargon free. This makes it easy to understand and you know exactly what to do without the aid of other explanations.

The Plastic Pattern is brilliant, and the instructions colour code the pattern piece you need.

Each Backpack is beautifully designed and really are fit for purpose. Each one is different, and have a unique and stylish look.

Highly recommended

5*/5

 

The hardback book comes in a neat folder style format. The plastic pattern is hard wearing, wipe clean and reusable.  Build a Bag Backpacks is filled with handy hints and tips.Perfect for beginners and exciting enough for advanced sewists.
