21 Terrific Patchwork Bags

21 Terrific Patchwork Bags Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A bag is the accessory that carries any number of essential items, and can be as individual as the person using it. Keeping this in mind, Susan Briscoe offers myriad inspirational suggestions alongside practical guidance on how to make bags that proclaim their owner's distinct personality. A rice sack bag is a practical, everyday shoulderbag, zipped for security, patchworked to coordinate with a special outfit and decorated with sashiko quilting. A rucksack echoes today's fashion for backpacks, machine quilted for added charm. The envelope bag, quilted in silk, is perfect for bridesmaids--or even the bride. These 13 original designs--further consisting of a quilter's travel bag, a Victorian circle bag and a tough tote bag--can be used to create eight detailed alternative variations to suit one's personal style. With so many ideas, Susan Briscoe never loses sight of practicalities, with suggestions for fabrics, ideas for quilting and patchwork styles, and step-by-step instructions for all projects illustrated with full color photography.
