The latest in the Take Two Fat Quarters series is written by bag making expert and frequent magazine and Sewing Directory contributor Debbie von Grabler-Crozier and published by Search Press. Many of us have a wide selection of fat quarters in our stash Take Two Fat Quarters Bags & Purses is ideal for helping you put them to use.
Although using just two fat quarters does limit the size of the projects Debbie did still manage to fit in a shopping bag, large storage bag and a cross body bag among the projects list. Other projects include a Japanese knot bag, clutch purse, make up case, bag organizer and handy fabric storage bucket among others – 16 projects in total.
Take Two Fat Quarters Bags & Purses starts with some essential bag making tips, with step by step colour photos to guide you, plus some tips on choosing your materials and equipment too. Then it’s onto the projects, each of which is preceded with a beautiful photo of the project you will be making. This book does have great photography.
The projects walk you through each stage from gathering supplies, to cutting fabrics and assembling your bag, with handy tips scattered throughout the book too. Photos and colour diagrams are provided where needed to help assist you in following the written instructions. Best of all there is a full size pattern sheet at the back of the book, no fiddling around with trying to resize templates!
