The Bag Making Bible - The Complete Guide to Sewing and Customizing Your Own Unique Bags

The Bag Making Bible is the first resource of its kind, a technique-led approach to sewing your own designer bags and purses. It explains in detail how to create the component parts of a bag, and demonstrates how to use the materials, hardware, tools and techniques available to bag makers, not least sewing machines. Before long you'll be comfortable adding pockets, inserting zips and closures, interfacing, reinforcing, and fitting linings and handles.

 

Each fully illustrated chapter ends with a unique, step-by-step project by author Lisa Lam. Put the projects together and you'll have the ultimate handbag wardrobe, complete with practical as well as stylish designs. You'll learn how to make:

 

  •  a funky laptop/messenger/office bag
  •  3 kinds of book bags
  •  an ultra-organised nappy/craft tote
  •  a multi-pocketed travel bag
  •  a rigid cocktail clutch
  •  an over-the body hobo bag, and more

There's also a separate pull-out section containing full-size patterns of the projects so you don't need to do any photocopying or enlarging.

Lisa also regularly contributes to sewing magazines and writes in her craft blog http://u-handbag.typepad.com
Lisa was born in the UK to parents for whom DIY was a way of life. As a child she loved experimenting with her Mother's huge 70s fabric stash. Fun school holidays were spent sewing up Sindy Doll dresses or crafting brum-brum cars out of big cardboard boxes. Now Lisa has grown up nothing has really changed except that now she has her own (out-of-control) fabric stash.
