Overview

These handbags are bold and beautiful—a varied selection with something to complement every outfit, fit every occasion, and suit every mood. They’re also fun and simple to make: many start with "fabric purse blanks,” which come from craft stores complete with handles and closures, ready to embellish. Or begin with a plain tote. The wide range of creative techniques to personalize the stylish bags includes decoupage, beading, appliqué, ribbon work, rubber stamping, image transfer, and painting. Choose from popular styles such as cigar box purses, wooden purse boxes, shoulder bags, and clutches. Complete detailed instructions, a multitude of photos, and patterns are all included.

A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Bags have been necessary accessories since ancient times. Easy to make and embellish, handmade bags are now mainstream fashion items. Prolific crafts author Browning (Jazzy Jars) puts her decorating talents to work with step-by-step projects for cigar-box purses and fabric bags using collage techniques for decoration. Kimura's successor to her Bags with Style has the same exotic flair as its predecessor and features projects using feathers, batiks, and silks. Accessories include scarves and belts. The bags in both books definitely make a statement, and both are recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
