Review:

August 2015 All crocheters will love the 23 modern and colourful bags in this book in a range of styles and wide assortment of crochet stitches. Each project comes with clear step-by-step diagrams, where appropriate, plus instructions. * Machine Knitting Monthly * Search Press have brought together a varied and amazing mix of bags into one brilliant collection. No matter what type of bag you are looking for you are sure to find something in this book, whether it's for your shopping or everyday use The book starts with a basic crochet course. Each step of each stitch is detailed including pictures. This means that even a beginner crocheted can start making bags. There are patterns for every level of crocheter and I love their use of techniques & colours to make unique designs. There are 23 different designs to choose from. Each of the designs are in written terms but there are also charts for people who prefer to use them. Wouldn't these bags be amazing for summer! see full review at: http://www.crochetaddictuk.com/2015/07/simply-stunning-crocheted-bags-book.html * Crochet Addict UK * "Simply Stunning Crocheted Bags" is a collection of patterns from Coats Design. There are 23 projects designed with eye-popping colors and patterns that shout summer. If you are looking to crochet a fashionable new beach bag or tote, laundry or shopping bag...you will find the patterns here. Crochet is easy to master and you will find all the step by step instructions and line drawings you will need to complete these projects. Some of the patterns include graphs as well as written instructions. The patterns tell you the fiber that was used in the making of the bag, but not the yarn company. So be creative and interchange cotton, linen, cotilin, jute, hemp... If you are into crocheting totes of all sorts, you will find yourself referring to this book over and over again. Change up the colors and fiber on your favorite patterns to match your wardrobe. Make them as gifts for your friends. * Examiner.com * July 2015 Search Press has teamed up with Coats Design Studio to create a beautiful new crochet book filled with colorful patterns for crochet bags of all kinds. Simply Stunning Crocheted Bags has nearly two dozen crochet purse and bag patterns for you to enjoy. It's a great addition to the Search Press range of books, which also includes the recently published Crocheted Purses (Twenty to Make) and Great New Ways with Granny Squares. About This Crochet Book This is a lovely soft cover crochet book with beautiful, colorful photography of the projects included in the collection. It begins with basic crochet instructions for beginners (or reminders). Then you'll find the patterns. They aren't divided or categorized into any specific things, so you can just enjoy browsing from one to the next until you land on the crochet pattern that you want to work on next. Each pattern describes the "basic pattern" so you have an understanding of the process of working the bag before you begin. Then there's the "how to do it", which explains the row-by-row instructions for the bag and how to assemble the different parts (if required). For example, The Beach Bag pattern, a big summer bag worked in yellow, orange and red rayon raffia, tells you the basic pattern is to work continuous rounds of US sc with info on how to double stitches, change colors and mark the round transitions. The full patterns explains the rounds, then how to crochet the straps to complete the bag. 5 Favorite Crochet Bag Patterns Personally, my five favorite crochet bag patterns in this book are The Beach Bag mentioned above and the following four: Floral Bag. This is a colorful 3D bag made up of crochet granny squares with roses in the center of them. It's worked in pink and orange for a terrific retro nod back to the crochet of the 1960s. Summer Bag. This unique crochet purse is worked with crochet rings. It's a soft cotton bag in shades of green and turquoise that emanates retro inspiration from the 1970s. Brown Basket Bag. This is a neutral toned contemporary crochet bag worked in a cotton/ linen blend yarn. It's a mostly-mesh pattern with a long crochet shoulder strap and looks like it would be a great item to take shopping at the farmer's market. Stripy Laundry Bag. This is the colorful striped crochet bag that you see on the cover of the book. 5 More Things To Know Each pattern includes the crochet instructions in both US and UK terms so you can easily craft in whichever crochet language you are most comfortable with. Coats Design is the exclusive European distributors of Rowan yarn. However, there aren't yarn specifications in the patterns. Instead, there are just suggestions - such as 100% recycled cotton yarn in apricot or cotton / linen blend in brown. This may be frustrating for some people who like to work with the specific yarns that are used by crochet designers but may be inspiring for others who like to adapt patterns using the yarn they already have on hand. Some of the crochet bag patterns require extra notions such as magnetic clasps, leather straps and bag handles. At the top of each crochet pattern you'll find the approximate size of the finished crochet bag along with the level of difficulty ranging from 1-3. This can assist you in making a decision about whether or not you want to do a specific pattern at any given time. These crochet patterns call for hooks ranging from D-O so you can easily find a crochet bag pattern that works up quickly or more leisurely depending on the type of crochet that you are interested in doing. * About.com * June 2015 The versatility of crochet comes to the fore in this beautifully photographed new book from Search Press. Editors Sabine Schidelko and Elke Reith have complied an exciting range of patterns from Coats Design Studio that should appeal to crocheters at all levels and tastes. From the lollipop-hued oversize beach bag to the more demure metal grey book bag with pink trim, there's a wide range of choice here. Celebrating the power of colour each and every pattern is bold, bright and beautiful with useful illustrations and diagrams where needed. The book also features a basic crochet course at the beginning for those who are new to the craft * Love Crochet * June 2015 With 23 bags to choose from, it's easy to find the ones to suit your style. The easy-to-follow instructions make the colourful bags easy to make. For beginners or as a refresher, you'll find basic techniques at the front of the book. Diagrams are used in some patterns. Appealing projects have come from the Coats company. They include handbags, totes for beach or shopping, mesh bags. I love the shoulder bag in khaki, it has a lacy effect pattern. Simple stripes, intriguing patterns, a couple of floral designs and granny squares. Well photographed. * Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts * May 2015 Sabine Schidelko and Elke Reith's bags are happy bags. They're bags to carry towels and sun-cream to the beach, bags to add flair to an outfit when you're going out for dinner, bags to stuff full of fruit and veg bought from a market while on holiday somewhere hot. These are bags to make memories. The size of the bags makes them easy, achievable projects to take on. And the step by step guide to crochet provided at the back of the book makes them accessible even to those who are new to crochet, or who lack confidence. Once you've crocheted your bag, all you'll need is a pair of sunglasses to keep in it, along with a bucket and spade and a ticket to get you to the seaside. None of which are included, sadly.. * Woman's Weekly * March 2015 Who doesn't love a crochet bag? We certainly do and we jumped for joy when this gorgeous tome from Search Press publishing landed on our desks. Crammed full of bright, modern ideas to make 23 crochet bags, this is a must-have book for crocheters of all abilities. Clear instructions and step-by-step diagrams are accompanied by fresh, clean photographs. We love the variety of stitches and colour combinations in this book that offers a project for everyone, no matter what your skill level or taste. There's also a handy guide to basic techniques for all those new to the joys of the hook! * Knitting & Crochet Home * This book lives up to its name, there are some stunning bags in this collection. It includes 23 bright, modern designs in a range of styles and uses a variety of crochet stitches and techniques. If you want to create an unusual and stylish bag for summer you will find fabulous ideas here! * Hot Brands, Cool Places *
