I thought that this might be a winner when I ordered it and it is. This is the most comprehensive book on bag making that I have found, and I have a few. Lots of fabulous hints on altering pattern and also different finishes, pockets, fasteners, zip inserts and more. When I get a minute I will be reading this cover to cover. Want to find out more Lisa's blog is here and I got the book from the Book Depository gotta love free postage.
