Editorial Reviews

Booklist
The author of Injeanuity returns with another dynamite craft book, this one for experienced stitchers who want to store or tote their stuff in style. Lum once again provides excellent diagrams and energetic yet sophisticated cartoon illustrations to guide readers through the construction process?A photo of the finished product and a roundup of “stuff you need” head each project, which is thoroughly and clearly explained in two or three sequential spreads. The covered spiral binding, which allows the book to lay flat as crafters follow the instructions, is a nice bonus.

VOYA - Patricia Morrow
This little book clearly falls into the category of "cute craft book." A spiral binding format, square pages, and primary color illustrations add a whimsical quality. The crafts themselves are all objects in which to put the stuff that all teens have. The illustrations are clear and the directions are specific for sixteen different projects with variations. A very good introductory section talks about getting prepared for doing projects and accumulating the needed materials and equipment. Tools are explained with the appropriate warnings to take care, because they include utility knives, glue guns, needles, and scissors. A basic introduction to the sewing machine is included as an alternative to hand sewing, but it is assumed that the crafters must know the basics of hand sewing. Each project includes a list of needed materials and equipment, step-by-step illustrated directions, and photographs of the finished projects, including beach bags, portfolios, pencil cases, or purses. Sidebars add extra project variations or alternatives. What could be wrong about making a wallet from duct tape? The book could be helped by a glossary of terms; this reviewer's extensive experience with crafts still found her stumbling over one term. And where were the boys? Some of these crafts would appeal to the other gender. Older, experienced crafters might find many of these projects too simple, but the book could be very useful for groups or clubs where older teens help younger ones do crafts. It is an attractive volume, but does not offer anything particularly new.
Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson
Do you need a new way to carry your stuff? Do you want to have fun creating your own bags? If you answered 'yes' to these two questions, this book is for you. The book contains numerous ideas for making bags, purses, wallets, and portfolios at home. The materials to make these bags are as diverse as the bags themselves. Thick tarps and old neckties are just two of the ideas mentioned in this book. The first part of the book gives some sewing basics, and outlines some of the things you will need to complete these projects. Each bag contains step-by-step directions that are both written and illustrated. The illustrations are clear and easy to follow while reading the written directions. A photograph of the finished bag is included with each of the designs. A child who is interested in creating things and loves bags will be quite interested in this book.

This book has easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions for making a variety of bags, totes, wallets, etc., accompanied by color cartoon-style illustrations and photos of finished items. Tools include pinking shears and a utility knife, and a sewing machine is recommended over hand sewing; some knowledge of sewing is assumed, although construction tips are included. Many of the bags are made from creative materials such as clear plastic, neckties, and place mats. A good addition where sewing is popular.
