Everyone loves a bag! Why have one when you can have ten? Different bags are needed for various activities in our day to day lives – shopping, working, relaxing, socialising, for home or holiday and my aim has been to put together a book showcasing ten different patterns; each one for a different purpose. There is a bag for every occasion.
Simply modern patchwork means fresh, bright fabric choices with simple, stunning patchwork designs. This has been coupled with stylish, practical bag designs. I have chosen fabrics and bag designs that I love and I hope that you will too.
Patchwork involves using two or more fabrics with a number of shaped pieces. Some of the bag patterns in this book use a selection of fabrics and it is the use of two, three or four fabrics and sometimes more which make the patchwork. Some bags feature squares, triangles or rectangles in a variety of patterns and the patchwork then is a real focal point in the bag.
