“We’ve reviewed a number of top-notch books on bagmaking in the past few months, and this one, by Sue Kim, is right up there with the best of them. The two features that we think make it outstanding are the range of patterns and the quality of the instructions . . . an excellent choice for someone who is still building their bagmaking confidence and skills.” —Australian Homespun Magazine

“One of the books I most often recommend for beginners. Although these projects don’t feature a lot of bells and whistles (complicated hardware, multiple pockets, etc.), the clean, classic lines provide great jumping-off points for more advanced sewists to customize to their heart’s content.” —Beth Ann Williams, author of Celtic Quilts

“If you have never made a bag in your life Sue Kim will take you through the process step by step.” —Gable House & Co.

About the Author

Sue Kim Bio: Sue Kim lives in Manitoba with her three lovely children and husband. You can find her latest designs on her website, She started sewing when she was ten and has always had a passion for crafts. Originally she earned a master’s degree in ancient Asian literature. However, she kept sewing and designing as a hobby until she was asked to be a sewing instructor at a Jo-Ann fabric store. That expanded into requests to teach in several quilt shops, which led to her starting her own pattern business. Her first patterns were for small bags and clutches. Now, most of the patterns Sue sells are downloadable PDF patterns. She always has countless ideas; her sketchbook is never empty!
