Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Making Hand Beaded Bags?

A must-have for beaded bag fans  Sep 27, 2003
This is a really great book for anyone interested in learning how to make beaded bags, without knitting. The designs are incredible. There are projects for all levels, ie. the Sequin covered bag is perfect for the beginner while the Stained Glass or Japanese Bags are ideal for those wanting more challenge. Her technique explanations are so clearly written, you'll be able to pick up your needle and start right away. I liked most of the colours used for the bags, but you can use what you like. There's a lot of work involved to complete a project, but the results are stunning. In my opinion, the only thing lacking was a Supplier List at the back of the book, specifically for purse frames which can be tricky to find.
Dull and Uninspiring Product with limited information  Sep 24, 2003
I totally disliked this book...if you want to make craft show type stuff then perhaps this is a good choice but I came looking for info on how to make high fashion high quality beaded handbags likened to some of todays top designers and thisbag did not even stracth the surface of what I needed. Not to mention the pages are all plain black and white copy paper which is uninspiring to say the least. I would only suggest this book for those looking to make little trinkets in thier spare time certainly not for resale.
