Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sometimes you want a fancy, impractical handbag just for fun. If so, this collection of projects by Green (The Button Lover's Book) and Cree, who run an enterprise called Ruby Tag Bags, will fill the bill. More is better on these bags, some of which have every square inch covered with fringe, buttons, embroidery, and other trims. Enlargeable patterns are included. Public libraries will find this a clever addition to their crafts collection.
