Overview

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 kids’ drawstring backpack has a cheerful seaside design, with boats and waves, while the envelope clutch is super-chic, covered in a delicate feather pattern. 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 will you love to make for yourself, or as the perfect gift to give to friends and family.
