I love this book! Every page of this book is really interesting. All of the bags in this book are beautiful and the directions are detailed and easy to follow. The book starts out by giving instructions on how to make the basic flowers featured in the book. It explains that by using different ribbons, yarns, etc., you can make the flowers look different. It also gives instructions on how to make each of the different bags and the materials needed. I love embroidery and sewing and this book is definitely a keeper. My daughter and I are going to start our first bag today. Can't wait!.

The bags in this book are simply AMAZING! Susan Cariello has given us designs that are unique and sure to become the treasure of anyone who is lucky enough to own one. I am so disappointed that the "Look Inside" feature is not available for this book. We need to see inside this book! I usually do not purchase books that do not have this feature; I'm so pleased that I did this time! Pleased? No, I'm over the moon! The cover photo is gorgeous but it does not give a complete picture of what is waiting inside. I've purchased dozens of books this year and I have to say that this is my favorite bag-book, not just because of the beauty of the completed projects but also because of the craftsmanship, which makes each bag nothing like anyone else will be carrying! These bags will stand out anywhere!

Here is some of what I love about this book:

The contents are exactly what is given in the product description; I didn't find any hidden surprises there. It begins with a tutorial on everything needed to create the bags and embroidery. Cariello covers: SUPPLIES needed, (such as fabrics, trims, embellishments, embroidery floss, yarns, wool, ribbons, buttons, beads, and thread); and EQUIPMENT, (embroidery hoops, varying sizes of needles, pins, scissors, markers, measuring tools, sewing machine in good working order--only a straight stitch needed, steam iron, and maybe a thimble and needle threader.) I've seen all of these needed supplies at a craft store. I've obtained several of the recommended equipment items online (hoops, needles, markers, etc.) so if necessary that is an option. Each project begins with the stitches used, materials, and supplies needed to complete it. (Cariello advises that everything for the bag be gathered prior to getting started. Good tip!

I first checked this out at the library and needed to buy it! There are so many cute designs in it and I can't wait to make several of them! The patterns are there (you just need to enlarge them) and the embroidery instructions are easy to follow. Nice, large, colorful instructions.

this book is beautiful to look at and read. I wish it had flower templates to trace onto the purse patterns. other than that it is lovely.
