Handbag Workshop: Design and Sew the Perfect Bag Reviews
I really appreciated this book even though I knit and then felt bags. There are some wonderful designs and great ideas that are transferrable to my kind of bag making. Very cool silhouettes!!! So as far as the styles, much better than the marmy stuff out there, and patterns included. Not much on substance, but more about design.
This is a great book... LOTS of ideas!!!
I have a large library of books on making handbags and while all offer something new for me to learn, this book was one of the best between the copy that explains exactly how to make a very professionally finished bag and the photos, showing very clearly the steps one needs to complete in the right order. This book is a must buy for anyone taking on their first handbag or to improve skills as a frequent handbag designer. Very inspiring.
This book is great! I do alot of leatherwork... Hand carving at a professional artist's level. I started doing saddles, tack, and harness. I do carved and handsewn bags, belts, cases, motorcycle seats, dashboards for custom cars....etc etc etc! I was looking for some good books on fashion bags, and/or a way to upgrade my bags, and I hit paydirt! Get this book, you'll love it!
Great book. However I think it's more suited to those who have a basic knowledge of sewing handbags, and using leather, because not every instruction has a picture to complement it.
I had preordered this book and eagerly awaited the release. making bags is a passion of mine, although I have not used leather and suede much. I was interested in learning some additional or new techniques.
Great book for the sewist's library. Following this book, your home made bags will stand out above the crowd!
Advanced, need a lot of special tools to complete projects, not for the every day home sewing person. If this is what you want to gear up for then this is your book.
