My review

The bag patterns included in this book are divine. There is one for almost every occasion.

The full sized pattern sheet needs a little studying before you start, it is double sided and the different bag patterns overlap. They are in different colours but it is still a little difficult to decipher.

I made the Boston Bag, and found the instructions very simple and easy to understand.

The instructions are written and have a drawn diagram of each step. Each step is numbered which is brilliant and the language is simple and clear.

I loved the photography of the bags and loved them all, it’s hard to choose which one to make first.

The bags would make ideal gifts and I have plans to make a bright lightweight one, which will be perfect for the Summer.






The best part, for me is choosing my fabric for my project.

I traced and cut my pattern pieces. The pattern suggests some interfacing, but I prefer some thin wadding, as I like a padded bag. It’s going to be a sewing bag so this idea is better as my scissors or pins won’t like through.
