You can never have enough bags: small sparkly evening bags, bright and colourful everyday bags and capacious carriers for shopping or for the beach. This fantastic collection of handmade bags features a selection of styles and designs. All are simply made, featuring the most popular shapes and sizes and all individualised to suit your own style. The 18 designs feature step-by-step instructions and photography for drawstring bags, shoulder bags or bags with beaded and wooden handles, as well as bags in simple colours embellished with fringes, feathers and vintage brooches. There is also a varied collection of ideas for decorating a purchased plain bag by dyeing it, adding patches, sewing on ribbons or sticking on shop-bought corsages. Made from brightly-patterned cotton, canvas, felt, silk or tweed, these fun and funky bags are so desirable, you'll want to make the whole range.
