I have seen the whole book, borrowed from the library, and it is delightful. I have made purses and bags, among many, many other items, and this book is full of simple, fun ways to put fabric together to make cute bags. I am thinking about making the water bottle carrier, as we re-use water bottles and always carry one, usually in my husbands pocket—gets warm quick—or my purse, which is an obvious problem if it is a humid day. If I could just throw a little carrier over my shoulder, problem solved. I like the author’s suggestion of using template sheets to construct bags, too.
