Handmade Bags in Natural Fabrics offers patterns for twenty-five basic bag styles along with sixty variations and the know-how to customize each bag to suit any style—from sweet-and innocent to minimalist to counter-culture. There is no better project for the eco-conscious crafter than a simple cloth bag. In addition to bag sewing patters, basic sewing lessons teach the fundamentals of bag sewing:
  • Hand-stitching, including French knot stitch and daisy stitch
  • Lining and drawstring casing
  • Corners, edges and straps
  • Simple flourishes such as embroidery, applique and more
Emiko Takahashi, a fashion and textiles designer, provides easy instructions and bag sewing diagrams, as well as a sheet of fully-sized pattern pieces for each handmade bag project—plus easy lessons on the basics of hand-stitching drawstring casings, corners, edges, straps, and simple flourishes. Cotton and linen bags are always useful and they lend a carefree, laid-back touch to any warm-weather outfit. Each bag can be machine-sewn, but they are designed to be made in natural fabrics that are lightweight enough to be easily sewn by hand. With Takahashi's expert guidance, beginning sewers with little or no previous experience can learn to make these understated and elegant handbags.

25 Sewing patterns include:
  • Envelope Pouches
  • Bucket Bags
  • Picnic Totes
  • Sacks and carryalls
  • Classic Drawstrings
