Patchwork Quilted Bags by Reiko Washizawa

If you're interested in quilting and making some fun bags, well this book, Patchwork Quilted Bags by Reiko Washizawa is packed with 19 different projects. What I love is that it's got all types of quilted bags, which each are so lovely and perfect for gift giving, carrying everyday crafting items, baby items and so much more! The quilted look to the bag gives it an appearance of a soft and crafty stylish look.

I thought this would be not too difficult to do any of the projects and actually it isn't with the simple step by step illustrated bags you can create. Aso by the included patterns in an envelope in the back. Plus, if you have somekowledge of sewing, this helps too! However, the book does have a few simple bags to create, which can be faster and easier to make and some a bit more challanging. Either type chosen, they all are very lovely and gorgeous! 
There are so many different sized bags, designs, and types like shopping bags and pouches you can create. Plus, using your own different fabric, each bag will have its own personal style and be totally different even if the pattern is used over and over. So if you are deciding to do a project, inside, there is a photo of the finished item and it will direct you to the back where there are directions and you can also take out the project to work with when doing that specific bag. It might be a little complicated, but it's a bit easier to have the patterns in one section and the final result large and easier to view than squished all together on one page. However, it is a little different than many books but works out as many do.
Now, the bag I am interested into is the shopping bags, chapter 3. There are so many that can be used in my home to carry food back from the store, plus they look still really nice as regular handbags! However, they would make great gifts for my friends and family members who shop often, well everyone I know shops at the store weekly and I'm sure these would do them some good as well as myself! Finally, I really enjoy this book and how helpful it is to create beautiful bags at home. Every pattern simple to follow and real pictures with each project!
Just excellent!
