Tote bags are the perfect and lasting alternative to throw-away plastic bags, and make excellent gifts. This book shows you how to make your very own totes, starting with an easy pattern for making a basic bag, which you can then adorn and customize. Twenty projects show you different techniques to create the bag (or bags!) of your choice: embroidery, painting, dyeing, transfers, quilting, stamping and more. Each project has been assigned a particular level of difficulty, but all are well within reach of even the absolute beginner.
Key features include:
- 20 DIY projects, from the introductory to the more advanced.
- Practical tips and hints for making original designs without breaking the bank – or one’s spirit.
- Easy-to-follow instructions and sleek colour photography.
