Whether you're a beginner crafter or experienced maker, this book will help you build on your sewing skills as you learn how to make a range of bags from a simple drawstring tote to a stylish colour-block rucksack. As you work your way through the 18 projects, you'll learn how to create interesting shapes (such as a cubed bag or round bucket bag), work with different fabrics (cotton, canvas, linen and more) and discover how to work in zips, poppers, pockets, straps and other add-ons. Step-by-step guidance, plus a wealth of tips and tricks, mean you'll always feel confident in developing your technique, while modern designs and design-focussed details will inspire you to get creative with your makes.

The projects include: a simple tote, shopper bag, iPad case, basic big duffel, curved purse, pompom bucket bag, retro backpack, overnight bag, boxy hand-luggage, contract clutch, fold-over backpack, drawstring toiletries bag and many more.
