Every woman has gone through it: you buy the perfect outfit for an event, and you can’t find a matching handbag. The solution: make one yourself! By using small quantities of beautiful fabrics like silks, satins, chiffons, and velvets, and combining them with gorgeous, glitzy metallic threads, you can create any bag from the minimalist to the over-the-top at a fraction of the store-bought cost. Anyone with basic sewing skills can complete these fabulous 15 projects, including a ruched organza Shimmering Mist” bag with nestled glistening beads, and an antique-inspired Granny’s Treasure,” with mother-of-pearl buttons on soft viscose velvet. All the necessary techniques embossing, slashing, quilting, pleating, cut-work, and hand-dyeing are outlined with vibrant photography and straightforward instructions.

Only basic sewing skills are required and step-by-step instructions are provided, together with a list of materials and equipment.
