Projects from my new Bag Making Book: Style and Swing

Style and Swing - 12 Structured Handbags for Beginners and Beyond by Susan Dunlop

I can finally reveal the bag making projects from my new book, Style and Swing: 12 Structured Handbags for Beginners and Beyond. I’m so thrilled that it’s release is just a few more months away! So exciting! I hope you like the designs and would love to hear what you think. So here they are…

This is the over-view for my new book, over on the Martingale & Co. Publishers website:

You’ll find plenty of reasons to sit down and sew these boutique-quality yet achievable bags and accessories. Everyone from beginners to experts can create an assortment of modern, practical projects for gifts or personal use. Start with a simple, elegant handbag and progress to more challenging designs; skill-level ratings are included.

  • Step-by-step illustrated patterns for 12 attractive projects in a variety of shapes and styles

  • Stylish accessories include a pleated clutch, market bag, satchel, and wallet

  • Includes resource info and comprehensive how-to techniques; learn about tools, fabric prep, interfacings, linings, and purse hardware

If you’d like to pre-order my new book (big hugs if you do and thank you so much for your support!) it’s available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, and other major book suppliers. I’ll also have signed copies available from my website, from mid-march at www.susieddesigns.co.uk
