Eighteen designers address the question, Why carry a purse when one can sport a work of art? The more than 50 handbags and backpacks offered here display variety, beauty, and creativity, as well as a dash of practicality. This clever collection is heavy on evening bags. Reinforced throughout is the fact that small pieces of fabric (such as tapestry, laces, brocades, and leather) can be embroidered, appliqued, tucked, beaded, trimmed, quilted, knitted, crocheted, woven, fringed, and then finished to perfection. Diagrams of techniques are scattered throughout the book to supplement precise numbered directions suitable for beginners. Parks' book will be welcomed in public library collections. Iva FreemanFrom Library Journal:
Cloth bags are practical, stylish, and easy to make. This book of step-by-step projects includes envelope bags, shoulder bags, and many small boutique-type bags in delightful shapes. Emphasis is on embellishment with beads, embroidery, tassels, and found materials. Instructions include patterns that must be enlarged, measurements for cutting straight-edged shapes, and stitch charts for several knit or crocheted bags. Each finished project is pictured in color. This book is full of ideas for using small pieces of treasured fabric. A good selection for public libraries.
