The book is well written & easy to understand. Photos are beautiful & well placed. Its a great addition to my other craft books & will be used reguarly. I will dip in as I need new purse for a night out or just because I feel like making something. Whats not to like?! - Customer Review

With full details of the tools and materials required as well as techniques and advice with the details of the embroidery stitches, this is an exquisite book. The designs and templates include a birdcage box, a beautiful heart purse, and clutch purses, and much more. We loved it! Highly Recommended!

This delightful book contains full-size patterns for making 19 pretty purses in a range of styles to suit all tastes. Basic sewing skills would be an advantage but both beginner and the more experienced could achieve pleasing results using the details instructions offered. Excellent value for money.
