Sew What! Bags: You Can Customize to Fit Your Needs, 18 Pattern-free Projects (Hardcover)
Author Lexie Barnes is a nationally known brand in the bag world, noted for contemporary designs that combine practical detail with stellar functionality. Her unique approach to bag design starting with the need and then customizing the bag to fit it perfectly is inspiring and freeing.

Bags show how to use bold, contemporary fabrics to make totes, drawstring sacks, messenger bags, organizers, satchels, and purses in a wide range of sizes and shapes. Every project is shown in a full-color photo accompanied by step-by-step, illustrated instructions. Many more variations in size, fabric combinations, and styling features are also pictured to show just a few of the dozens of possibilities for customizing each project.
Crafters of all levels are sure to be carried away by Lexie Barnes's inspired approach to creating the bag of your dreams.
