In the April/May issue of Sew News the Off the Shelf column featured Choly Knight’s Sewing Stylish Handbags & Totes. Knight’s book is packed with ideas for making your own stylish handbag or tote plus you will get expert guidance on picking fabrics, hardware and detailed how tos and instruction. This book is filled with over 50 bags to make plus full size patterns are included. It’s great for the sewing newbie as well as sewists that are more advanced and need a little inspiration.
And, really can we every have too many sewing books? I think not.
Plus, get a look at the bag that Choly made that is featured in the book on page 136. It’s roomy, trendy and great for a laptop, tablet of school books. Please check out Choly’s blog Sew Desu Ne for more fun projects, tutorials and more or visit her Facebook page at Shori Ameshiko.
For the question that you will need to answer in order to be entered to win Sewing Stylish Handbags & Totes and a bag made by Choly Knight herself, what is your favorite type of bag or purse. Do you need a huge back breaker tote bag or are you more inclined towards small purses that hold just a few essentials.
Let me know in the comments section below. One winner will be picked and announced on the next Free Stuff Friday.
