With the exception of a few of the somewhat strange bags made out of caution tape and packing tape, I have to say that the bags in this book are practical and innovative. I don’t remember ever seeing a craft book that is this interesting. I do think, however, that the author got a bit carried away with duct tape, hardware supplies, and staple guns, and I’m almost certain that see-through clutches with Wonder Woman decals went out a long time ago. But all of these little oddities just add to the easy feeling of this book.
I made one of the bags (I’ll post pics later), and I’m starting on another. They really are as easy to make as Jodi says. She gives enough instruction to know how to do it and still be able to create your own version using her technical guidelines. Cute copy and and a lot of colorful photos makes it a pleasure to read. Most of the bags can be made in a day or less. The materials used are all unique, ranging from shower curtains to pillow cases… and almost all of them resulting in stylish, different and all together fun bags.
