Lisa from Uhandbag in the UK has a deserved reputation for really clear tutorials with excellent, easy-to-follow and easy-to-adapt instructions for bag makers of all skill levels. In fact, her lining zip pocket tutorial was a really eye opener for me when I started bag making.
Lisa has been very busy lately and has just taken the wraps off her first book: The Bag Making Bible. If it follows the great precedent of her existing tutorials, it is sure to be a "must-have" for your sewing reference library. Maybe something to whisper in Santa's ear for the holiday season?
My bag making book is written more with a focus on bag making techniques. Before I sat down and did any writing I looked through as many of the other bag making books that I could get my mitts on. On reading them I noticed that none of these books concentrated on how to make the various parts of a bag. They were more likely to be 'how to make 20-30 bag designs'. I wanted to do something completely different to the other bag books so I wrote about how to construct the different parts of a bag; like how to do/how to understand linings, pockets, handles, structure, piping, interfacing and stuff like that.
