The book is chock-full of great ideas for totes, shoulder bags, wristlets, clutches, pouches, coin purses, and wallets all made using interesting shapes and Amy's bright, modern signature fabrics. It also includes the patterns for all the projects, which is a nice bonus since I get pretty annoyed by books that expect you to photocopy and enlarge a pattern by 300%....not so easy if you're working off your little home HP printer.
The book has plenty of color photographs, easy-to-use instructions, and a spiral-bound style that's handy since it lies flat while you're wrestling with pins and fabric and thread. Mother's Day is coming up, and it would be so cute to use the book to make a pretty present for your mom or your grandma...especially with a sweet note tucked inside!
