Book Review ~ Simply sublime bags by Jodi Kahn

Hi all

Well I bought this book last month and paid full price too.  And boyo it was worth it... So I have no affills with this book at all, only that I like it heaps.

Also I have check my local Library and it is available to borrow.

It has 30 no-sew, low sew projects.  Have stapler and tape will travel, and make drop dead beautiful bags.

As I went through this book, it opened my eyes to using materials that I have overlooked.  I do make bags and design them myself, but this made me think even more about looking out side the box.

The photos are clear and the patterns where easy to understand. To prove this, my youngest gremlin looked through and pick out a bag.  He decided that it would be a great pencil case.  The pattern showed a easy way of using a stapler, but I used the sewing machine.  It turned out great.  Youngest happy, proud to take it to school.  So that in itself means the book was a major winner.  I have gotten more ideas from this book than quite of a few that I have bought and borrowed for a long time.

The basic hardware is available from  the hardware store.  The tape didn't cost that much and I have enough to make a few more, or even using them in different designs that are now going through my brain.

I found that the guys at the hardware store where the greatest.  They found everything I needed. One of the kind gentlemen wrote down the details of the book for himself.  They all know me at the local hardware that started with a B.  That is another story.
