I buy everything by this author and have noticed that she is an excellent crocheter as well as knitter. My first impression of this book was poor but then on looking into the patterns for each bag, I began to see some very innovative designs. I can't use most of the yarns called for (Lion) and also can't felt on my side loading washing machine and this rules out quite a few of the bags. But her techniques are worth exploring perhaps in other projects then the ones in this book. Several use Tunisian crochet. Instead of lining she calls for plastic canvas mesh. She gives instruction for twisted cord on several of the handles. The dancing diamonds felted tote is made with a double-ended hook. Magic miters felted tote is the nicest one (bottom left on front). I also like the pink evening bag on the bottom right. Of all the crocheted bag books this is definitely the most unusual.

I love the patterns in this series, but the choices of yarn are sometimes questionable. That's easily resolved if you can see past what the pattern really is. It's great for travel as you can bring a card and go. I really like this entire series in this format. I earn a living making purses and I highly recommend these patterns.

While I was not entirely thrilled with the choices of color or texture for many of the bags, I still felt their physical designs were useful and inspirational. Although the book is actually intended for practitioners of crochet, the line drawings would easily suggest amendments that could make them useable for knitting as well.

The most innovative thing about the "book" is that it isn't one. The format is that of a box containing individual, plastisized folded cards, each displaying a pattern and its instructions. I found this a useful facet, since I enjoy taking my handwork when I go to work or if I expect to wait anywhere for a while. The light weight cards mean one doesn't have to carry a book or magazine with one. The coating on the cards also means that the patterns are safe from crumpling, water damage, and sticky fingers, something I was especially impressed with since often my loose leaf patterns get a little beat up even in plastic sleeves.

For those of you who like beading, take note of some of the handles. While most of those displayed are commercial handles, there is no reason one could not produce the same results with beads in glass, metal, ceramics, stone or bone. You might use one of the bags to showcase your handiwork in beading.

Button enthusiasts might also use one of the bags to display their favorites. My mother had a set of 5 ivory buttons with sculpted faces on them that my father purchased for her in Japan in 1952. I have since inherited them, and I've wanted a way to show them off. I've plans to create a handbag and display it with the buttons in a shadow box.

One of the bags is composed of simple granny squares, but those of you who are big into crocheted afghans may have designs you like better with which to construct that particular bag. There are tons of crocheted block designs out there with which to experiment and no reason why the bag could not be constructed of them, so experiment and see what you come up with.

An interesting and useful formate with inspiring ideas to create truely individual hand bags.

The patterns were not as "fashion forward" as I would have hoped them to be.
