Review


We've reviewed a number of top-notch books on bagmaking in the past few months, and this one, by Sue Kim, is right up there with the best of them. The two features that we think make it outstanding are the range of patterns and the quality of the instructions. Let's begin with the instructions: each and every detailed step in the making of each bag is illustrated with a clear photograph. This is a real boon for visual learners and makes this book an excellent choice for someone who is still building their bagmaking confidence and skills. You have a photograph right in front of you so you can tell immediately if you've understood what's required and are doing it correctly. The other thing that we felt distinguished this was the number and stylishness of the projects. There are detailed instructions and patterns for 19 bags, from a case for sunglasses and a small zippered wristlet through to clutch bags, hobo bags, totes and backpack-like bags. Full-size patterns are provided for each project on tear-out pattern sheets inside the back cover.
(Australian Homespun Magazine)

I can't really put my finger on why I like bags so much, I just like them. So, when I saw this book on bags with it's intriguing title, I knew I wanted it. I have the ebook version of Bags, The Modern Classics by Sue Kim. I like having the ebook version. At first, I thought I would miss having the actual book to hold. But, I like that it isn't taking up space on a bookshelf, that I can have a copy with me anytime my laptop is with me, and that I am being “green”.There are 19 different projects in this book, each neatly divided into categories. There are Small Bags, Clutches and Large Bags. There are several (if not all) of the bags that I plan to make!The instructions are very well written and there are photo illustrations for most of the steps. It has very easy to understand directions for each bag. The patterns are all at the back of the book. Since I had the ebook, I wondered how well that would work, but I printed out the pattern for my first project last night and it printed just fine. I think it might actually be easier than keeping up with pattern pieces that you tear out of the back of books.The small bags section has a pencil case, a case for your sunglasses, a wallet, and an adorable wristlet. Everyone of these projects would come in handy for gifts and for your own personal use. I think I will HAVE to make the sunglasses case very soon! (Michelle Kitto 07/13/2012)

Bags the Modern Classics, is filled with a wide range of bags to make and is geared for every skill level. If you have never made a bag in your life Sue Kim will take you through the process step by step. Once you open the book and are past the table of contents and introduction to this book, you are immediately taken to the teaching and what tools to use. Sue's standard for skill level buttons of one, two, or three. One being the easiest and less piecing to level three, where there are more pieces to sew with pleats, and thicker layers. Far as I could see none of the bags in this book require anything over the top. Not to mention Sue shows how you can make the same bag look completely different with different fabrics and embellishments. (Gable House & Co., 02/11/2014)

About the Author

Sue Kim has been designing sought-after creative sewing patterns for many years. She lives in Manitoba, Canada, with her three lovely children and husband. Sue shares her patterns and creativity on her popular website, ithinksew.com. She started sewing when she was ten years old and has always had a passion for crafts. She earned a master's degree in ancient Asian theater. However, she kept sewing and designing as a hobby until, luckily, she was asked to be a sewing instructor at a Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store. That expanded into requests to teach in several quilt shops. The quilt shop owners also encouraged her to start her own pattern business. Her first patterns were for small bags and clutches, and eventually she was asked to make a pattern book of bags and clutches. Many of the patterns Sue sells are downloadable PDF patterns. She has completed several books of patterns and has become an independent pattern designer, writing for several publishers and pattern companies. Sue has countless ideas; her sketchbook is never empty.
