from Purses, Bags and Totes — Review by shelley

I am an experienced seamstress and have made a multitude of bags, however, am totally pulling out my hair trying to figure out the purse front zipper on the Citrus Bag! I have torn it out 3 times, something is missing in the directions!! I havent torn out something in years, I'm very disappointed, It cant be that hard. (Posted on 6/27/16)
Question for Marianne Brown — Review by Virginia

I am in the process of making the three layer bag, and am stuck on the zipper on the interior lining, do I have to use an open end zipper? I have read the directions several times and cannot figure it out. I have made over 100 purses and I am stumped. Thanks. Virginia Schager (Posted on 6/2/14)
Purses Bags and Totes — Review by Marianne Brown
This book has lots of great patterns, photos and directions that are somewhat useful. I just made the Moon bag and it took me and 2 other experienced seamstresses three hours to figure out the installation of the top zipper. I have sewn for 58 years and the combined experience in years was 150 years. There are six steps missing in that zipper process. I am making the three layer bag this week and will let you know. The moon bag is a beautiful finished product, but it was an agonizing trek to the end.

Since your are selling the book over the internet you need to understand the internet's reach as international. I live in Panama, I do not have washable tape or those little "clippy things". Alternate solutions to high tech supplies would be helpful. Also, 35 million Hispanics live in the U.S. Sewing is huge in Latin America, your books need to be translated for that market. It is enormous and the women LOVE to sew. (Posted on 6/21/13)
Purses, Bags & Totes — Review by Kathie R Kerler
The most striking feature among the ten bags are the fabrics. They are bold, bright and graphic, and several bags show unexpected combinations of geometric prints. Another great feature of the book is the CD. The full-size patterns eliminate the need to enlarge patterns in the book either at home or at the copy shop. (Posted on 1/6/13)
Purses, Bags & Totes — Review by pjmartin
I used to carry nice, leather purses until my back kept going out. Then I discovered how lightweight fabric purses are and I make all of my purses now. This is a great book, with not only purse, patterns, but also a backpack, tote bags, messenger bag, and several others. The patterns are all included on a CD. The instructions are very detailed and what I love–there are lots and lots of photos that show you how to get thru each step. It's going to be difficult deciding which bag I should make first. I think it will be the Fresh Shoulder Bag tho. (Posted on 12/31/12)
