Overview

Learn how to hand-make your own bags from fabric you have screen-printed yourself with beautiful patterns, from foliage motifs to striking chevrons. Choose from the 35 gorgeous projects by designer and maker Jenny McCabe, which range from stylish purses to larger totes, and from children's bags to practical designs that will be endlessly useful. Try making a simple wash bag with a gorgeous rose pattern, or a laptop holder in a classic dotted design, created using potato circles. The gingko-leaf bucket-handle bag is ideal to carry day-to-day, and the nappy bag is both adorable and functional—the clouds and raindrops pattern works for a girl or a boy, and the bag comes with a matching changing mat. If you've never screen-printed before, the comprehensive techniques section will teach you all you need to know, including how to use a variety of motifs. Plus, the sewing know-how section will guide beginners, as well as provide a handy reference for experienced stitchers. Each project comes with beautifully illustrated step-by-step instructions, and you are certain to find a design that you will love to make for yourself or as the perfect gift to give to friends and family.
• 35 chic designs that are both original and easy to make.
