Book Description

Offering easy-to-learn instructions and techniques that will have you sewing your first bag in no time. 

Sewing is a time honoured tradition that's functional and purposeful, and is the foundation for almost all clothing and accessories as we know them today. While most books dedicated to this topic focus on machine sewing, there's a simpler side to this craft, and learning the techniques and skills needed to handsew open up a wide world of possibilities from hemming your own garments, sewing on buttons to, repairing beloved closet items, to making your own new pieces. Sew a Bag will introduce readers to handsewing, focusing on the basics and the techniques most applicable to sewing that can then be extended to a wide variety of projects in the future. Establishing the building blocks here will encourage crafters to try new ideas and develop their own style as they progress; but it all will start with a simple pattern.
