It’s only a few weeks until my new bag making book, Bag Making Techniques for Beginners and Beyond, is released on Amazon! It will be available as an eBook, for pre-order now, and as a printed book which can be ordered from the release date of 26th March 2019. So exciting!
So what’s in this new book and what makes it so different to all the other fab bag making books out there? Well, rather than being a book of ready-to-make projects, it’s a comprehensive guide on how to design and make you own bags, adding a variety of elements as you go along. I’ve aimed this book at anyone wishing to confidently adapt a bag-making pattern, to suit their own needs, or anybody who’d like to start realising their own creative ideas.
I begin with lots of advice on fabrics, tools and using stabilisers.
For anyone who’s never made a bag before, I’ve included a starter project for making a fully lined tote bag, so that you can get an initial understanding of simple bag construction.
I then take you through an abundance of techniques, know-how and tips on making more complex bags. You’ll learn how to make and add a variety of pockets, handles, closures, bases, bag frames and how to install bag hardware.
I’ve covered a range of basic techniques, through to the more advanced methods, so you’ll be able to take your bag making to a level you can be truly proud of!
Pre-order your copy of Bag Making Techniques for Beginners and Beyond, on Amazon today, and be one of the first to get making the best bags ever!
Happy sewing! x
