Overview

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 and an adjustable-strap messenger bag to an evening wristlet and 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 customizable. 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.

With patterns for everything from clutches and hobos to cosmetic bags and beach totes, Bag Bazaar shows you how to create the perfect, custom accessory—in less time than it would take to shop for one.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Avery began making handbags because she couldn't afford to buy all of the bags she liked in stores, and her hobby quickly became a full-time business. In her first book, she presents a collection of easy-to-sew handbags, totes, and specialty bags, giving enough information on design techniques to inspire readers to create their own bags. The step-by-step instructions are clear and easy to follow, although a few more illustrations of some of the trickier steps would have been nice. While crafters of all ages might enjoy this book, it's an especially good choice for libraries with groups of younger crafters, including teens.
