Postcard Reviews – Nov 2019
The 15 designs are created using the full-size rigid template contained within the book. It is easy-to-use, durable, reusable, wipe-clean and perfect for fussy cutting, plus it is simple to position and use there is no need to pin it.
The wonderful Debbie Shore is back with her ingenius Build a Bag series.
Satchels is just as brilliant as the other pattern books, and once again with a reusable template and 15 designs, this is a book that is highly recommended.
I love Debbie Shore designs,simple because they are easy to make, with instructions that are simple to follow, but the finished design always looks professional and not handmade at all. With handy hints and tips, this book is just like a private lesson with the lady herself. She has made this series easy for beginners and technical enough for advanced sewists. Recommend fabrics are given, how to attach hardware and the ‘Oops’ page gives advice on what to do when things don’t quite turn out right.
The pattern templates are amazing. The pattern gives an image where each piece needed is highlighted. This makes your sewing a stress free experience. The language used in describing the patterns are jargon free and each step by step is numbered and once again includes a visual image.
Recommended for every stitcher and I for one will use mine again and again.
