    Wonderful book!

    I recently started designing my own handbags. Through trial and error, I am very pleased with the results. I am so glad that I bought this book as it eliminates much of the trial and error, thus saving me time and costly mistakes. It includes the basics as well as some advanced techniques. A goldmine of information.
