Publisher Comments:

The "green" way to make gorgeous handbags using recycled materials

There has been a movement throughout the fashion industry over the past ten years towards new types of materials to replace leather. Companies like Kate Spade have been in the forefront, using vinyl, rubber, and micro fibers for their expensive, fashionable, sought-after products. Kenneth Cole, Prada and Coach have also been experimenting with micro-fibers, rubber, and combinations of distinctive materials for their latest trendy products as well.

This book explores how these different types of materials can be used to create one-of-a-kind trendy items for the home sewer. The projects cater to all ages and degrees of difficulty, and materials are easy to find at traditional fabric stores, as well as places like Wal-Mart, Target, Staples, and home box stores.
