About the Author

Sue Kim started sewing when she was ten and always had a passion for crafts. An independent pattern designer, she is a best-selling author and contributes to several publishers and pattern companies. She lives in Manitoba, Canada, with her family.


The best book on bags I have ever seen. 19 fabulous bags to sew. Techniques, tip and know-how are all included plus full-sized templates. I love sewing books that give full-sized patterns, so this book is ticking all the boxes. Clear instructions, easy-to-follow and fantastic photos. The projects are graded by skill and have suggestions for size and fabric differences. My favourites are the Evelyn Clutch, Miranda Bag and Stephanie Bag. You can make 76 bags with this book. -- Karen Platt, August 26, 2015 Sue Kim has followed her first book of bag projects (Bags - The Modern Classics) with another beauty. As she did before, Sue has provided detailed step-by-step instructions illustrated with clear photographs for each of the 19 projects in this latest volume. This, coupled with the stylish design of the bags and the excellent technique overview chapter, makes Boutique Bags an excellent choice for crafters who are building their bag-making skills or looking for creative inspiration. The bags range from coin purses, clutches and evening bags all the way up to a huge market bag, 16 1/2 in. long and 12 in. wide. Each bag is shown made in at least three very different fabrics, demonstrating the impact that colour and print can have on the bag's personality. Australian Homespun Magazine, August 2015 In Kim's second collection of purse, clutch, and bag patterns, the author (Bags) focuses on the feminine, with lots of pleats, bows, and ruffles as details. Three basic styles are presented: small pouches and coin purses, clutches, and larger shoulder bags, and each includes multiple projects, many with variations in hardware or embellishment. Most of the bags are beginner-friendly, and the instructions are perfect for novices. Sewists seeking structured bags won't find them here, but if slouchy hobos, roomy shopping totes, and frilly handbags are of interest, there's plenty to choose from. Basic sewing skills are assumed, but step-by-step instructions for nuances that make homemade bags look more professional, such as sewn-in piping, magnetic snaps, and adjustable straps and buckles, are supplied. Patterns are provided on a pull-out sheet. VERDICT Sewists who enjoy bags designed by Lexie Barnes, Amy Butler, or Sara Lawson will enjoy Kim's stylish designs. Library Journal, August 2015 Hit the town with chic, modern bags for any occasion! Bestselling pattern maker Sue Kim's latest collection includes 19 fashionable projects, from a metal-framed clutch to a classy carryall. Learn to sew darts, ruffles, and other design elements for a professional finish. Try out first-hand how a simple change in fabric offers a whole new look. With full-size patterns, techniques, tips and straightforward construction, this is a great bag making book. Sewing World, March 2016
