Another book in my sewing library is Amy Butler's Style and Stitches. It has 12 patterns from which to make 26 bags/purses. Although I wouldn't make a bag with combinations of bright florals as shown in the book, the construction tips and patterns themselves look great. Some of the bags are enormous but the beauty of sewing is that you can adjust patterns to suit your own style! And some of the patterns in the book give the large and smaller versions. I haven't made anything yet from the book but I do like the shape of the Cosmo Bag (I would make a smaller version) and the Teardrop Bag. More to add to my wish list of things to make.
