Handbags are hotter than ever - but so are their designer price tags. There s never been a better time to sew your own fashionable bags and it has never been easier with designer Megan Avery as your teacher. In Bag Bazaar, Avery presents 25 bags that even a sewing newbie can handle, in a variety of styles sure to match any look. For years, Avery has hosted bag-making workshops in her boutique. Here she shares her expert advice as well as the blueprints for her most popular designs. Beginning with a guide to basic sewing techniques, Avery then features patterns for bags that range from funky to sophisticated, from a roomy backpack to a pleated clutch. Also included are patterns for specialty bags such as an eco-friendly grocery tote, a laptop sleeve and a garment bag. Need extra pockets or longer handles? All of the patterns are completely customisable. Every design is accompanied by a hip, modern illustration and - best of all - Avery offers all the encouragement and know-how you need to invent your own unique creations. Bag Bazaar shows you how to create the perfect, custom accessory - in less time than it would take to shop for one.

Good overall intro to the very basics of bag making. A good jumping off point for a first time bag maker with little sewing experience.

Uninspiring. Instructions were difficult to follow.

This book was not very inspiring to me. There were also hand written notes about one bag from another borrower, detailing problems with the instructions. For these reasons, I did not attempt to make any of the purses.
