Back-to-School Bags — Some Inspiration
BookPage recently had this to say about the newest addition to Storey's Sew What! series, Sew What! Bags: "Author Lexie Barnes puts her experience as a handbags and accessories designer to work in this great guide, which includes detailed instructions, inspiring photos and plenty of you-can-do-it encouragement. Spot-on tips for hemming, choosing fabric and breaking out of the pattern mold help ensure this book is a crafter’s delight."
If a DIY back-to-school bag is on your project list this month, here's a little inspiration. You can also visit Lexie's Sew What! Bags Web site and share what you've created in this Flickr group.
