Item description for Folk Bags: 30 Knitting Patterns and Tales from Around the World (Folk Knitting series) by Vicki Square...

Thirty projects from 23 countries offer a worldwide representation of bags, from Asia and Africa to Europe and the Americas. From the fish-shaped Japanese felted bag to the Persian carpet--inspired handbag, each bag is a product of its cultural history. Each pattern begins with a brief history describing the source behind these contemporary interpretations of folk designs. Folk stories also accompany many projects. Included are designs for bags for work or play, and bags of all shapes, colors, textures, and sizes. Using this collection, knitters can create bags for children, for market, for everyday, or for a special evening event.

Reviews - What do customers think about Folk Bags: 30 Knitting Patterns and Tales from Around the World (Folk Knitting series)?

So Clever  Jul 12, 2007
I bought the book because I loved the pictures of the finished bags. Now that I've started to work with the book, I've fallen in love with the author's craftsmanship. Not only are the bags unique, their construction shows a real understanding of the possibilities that stich choice creates. For example the Market Bag is a classic string bag, but unlike the string bags I've made from online patterns, this one uses unusual (but simple) stitch variations to provide maximum strangth and shaping. I can't wait to make more of the patterns!
Sweeeeet!  May 4, 2007
I convinced my sister to buy me this book for my birthday 4 months early so I could make her the fish purse for her birthday which was way before mine. Since then I've made 3 of the fish purses. They rock. Whenever we are carrying one people stop us to ask about it. My sister even had japanese tourists taking pictures of it (not her) in an airport. All of the projects are super cool and would probably get the same reaction. Now I just need to brush up on my fair isle skills so I can try knitting the Doll Bag.
Good bag mag!  Jan 9, 2007
I found the patterns easy to work and many easily adapted. Patterns were fairly well written. Also the inserted how to diagrams were extremely useful. Very well thought out book, easy to follow, and excellent patterns(in my point of view of course:).
Great, earthy designs  Jan 3, 2007
One of a kind designs with a lot of ethnic punch. If you like unique things this the book for you. I just loved almost all the designs and color combinations as well. Makes you want to collect purses!
Combines both artistic flair and solid knitting techniques!  Nov 18, 2005
As an experienced knitter, I am really enjoying knitting the exciting designs and exploring the interesting techniques in this book.
