There is nothing quite like owning a stylish, unique handmade bag or purse that you have created yourself.
Jenny Rolfe has used quilting and free machine embroidery techniques to create a stunning collection of bags and purses for all occasions. All the techniques are explained fully, including how to make your own fabrics using ribbons and bondable fibre and how to makecords to give your bags and purses that really personal touch.
The fabrics used include cottons, silks and felts, as well as the more exotic metallic organza, chiffon, velvet and netting.
Variegated and metallic machine threads add texture, and the bags and purses are futher embellished with beads, sequins, shisha mirrors and wire in various colours.
Detailed step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow text show how to construct and decorate five beautiful bags and six purses.
