'How to' Book

Make your own handbag, clutch bag & purse by Emma Castle


A full-colour, step by step, photographic guide to making your own handbag, clutch bag and purse.

Perhaps you’ve seen a bag at a craft fair and wondered if you could make one like it, or maybe you just love handbags and purses, and like making things, and this book looked like a perfect way of combining your pleasures. Whatever your background, whether you have oodles of experience with fabrics or none at all, you’ll have great fun making the handbags described in this book.

Each step of the process of making a handbag, clutch bag and purse is described and photographed, and the book contains all the patterns you'll need. It also has a very useful section on choosing your fabric, where to buy it from (even in small quantities), and a set of 16 inspirational patterns to whet your appetite and start you off.
