Beginner Bag Book and Patterns
Do you want to learn how to sew well? This book and the patterns are meant for beginners.
All bags are made from fabric because fabric is more forgiving than vinyl. Once you've gotten comfortable sewing with fabric, go ahead and make them in vinyl. The book covers everything from choosing patterns and fabric to working with zippers and simple hardware. The patterns that follow build upon the information contained in the book. The hardware and zippers required can all be found easily in craft stores. Hardware includes magnetic snaps, sliders, D rings, and snap hooks.
This bundle is like getting five patterns for five dollars each, a bonus pattern, and a free book!
