|The long awaited book|
I've bought quite a few bag making books over the last couple of years. Some for basic techniques, well we all have to start somewhere don't we, others for inspiration and new ideas. Sort of like cookbooks for the crafty. And, as with my cookbooks, I have my tried and trusted favourites, ones that have broken spines, bent covers and dog ears through constant use (but without the gravy stains and grease marks....)
Well, I'm sorry to say that my nice new book isn't going to stay that way for long. Within minutes of opening it I knew it was going to be one that I would be constantly reaching for and will be well worn in no time. I could rave about this book for ages, about how it ticks all the boxes for beginner and accomplished bag maker alike, about the traceable patterns.. to scale, about the easy way it's written, but I'm not going to. Instead I'm going to encourage you to buy the book and find all of that out for yourself.
