Product description

Packed with ideas that will turn craft enthusiasts into do-it-yourself designers, this new collection of handmade bags comes straight from the pages of the French magazine "Marie Claire Idees. "Never before published in the United States, the patterns offer a variety of traditional, vintage, and contemporary looks, all wonderfully stylish and inventive. Designs range from the practical--a string shopping bag, a laundry organizer, and an armchair caddy--to delicate evening bags bedecked with ribbons and sequins. The projects use a wide variety of materials and techniques, including applique, beading, crochet, embroidery, knitting, patchwork, and sewing, and even include ideas for kids' storage totes and tidy bags for the bathroom, kitchen, and garden. Clear, step-by-step instructions with photos are geared to both beginning and experienced crafters.
