Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Handmade Chic, Laura shares simple strategies for creating 40 small luxuries and high-fashion

accessories, from a smart leather iPad portfolio to a feather-embellished evening bag. With sections

organized in skill-building order and based on type of accessory—small leather goods, agendas and

notepads, electronics, bags and wallets, and evening items—Laura offers patterns, easy-to-follow diagrams, and detailed instructions for fabricating each glamorous project, whether it involves sewing from scratch or embellishing a prepurchased garment. While showcasing her own creative designs, she provides readers with the basic techniques and encouragement they need to come up with variations and create their own signature pieces.

Packed with Lauras signature flair and finesse, vibrant four-color photos, step-by-step drawings, and

a complete list of suggestions on where to purchase materials, Handmade Chic is an accessible guide

to at-home crafting that is elegant enough for the most modern, fashion-savvy of women.
