Hi, I'm Lisa Lam.  I love making bags and crafting and set up U-handbag.com in 2005, since then I've written two books: 'The Bag Making Bible' and 'A Bag for All Reasons', many, many Patterns, am a Bluprint (Craftsy) instructor for several classes and now appear as a guest presenter on Sewing Quarter.  I've sewn since I was eight and love it! I live in Brighton UK, with my husband and little girl.  I hope you have fun with my easy to download e-patterns below, and do pop into my U-Handbag shop for all your bag making supplies.  Lisa Lam X
