Item description for Vogue Knitting on the Go: Bags Two (Vogue Knitting on the Go!) by Trisha Malcolm...
Designer handbags are all the rage, but their designer-style price tags can be prohibitive. With Bags Two, knitters of all levels can make their own for a fraction of the cost—and have twenty boutique worthy purses, guilt-free. Choose from both classic styles and today's hottest trends: an elegant evening bag with a dainty scallop pattern; a basketweave messenger satchel, felted and reinforced with bamboo dowels for extra support; a '60s-style handbag with all-over bobbles, in an eye-catching orange; a trendy boho-inspired purse with beaded fringe; and many more. As with all the books in the series, there are easy to follow instructions, beautiful photos, and an overview of yarns, stitches, and finishing techniques.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting on the Go: Bags Two (Vogue Knitting on the Go!)?
lots of detail work Jul 12, 2007
The two bags by Margery Winter are worth the price of the book.One is a freeform bag with lots of added knit flowers. The second is Boho and looks kind of old fashioned but very interesting. Why did they use this ugly orange bag for the cover? There's a nice little water bottle bag, a very pretty slip stitch shoulder bag. The wavy bag pattern is nice. Pink evening bag seems very involved to make but is quite attractive. The woven messenger bag is another nice one. Nice cabled tote with i-cord handles. Two backpacks, one for a child. If you like to felt there are six of them out of the twentyfive. Some projects add embroidery or beads. Most of the handles are to be purchased. Linings use the finished bag as a template which I find difficult. Not for the knitter in a hurry. Recommended if you buy all the bag books and like to do the fussy stuff.
