The Better Bag Maker - Book Review and Giveaway!

If you’ve ever been interested in making your own bags, you should take a look at this! In her latest how to book, our friend, the very talented Nikki Mallalieu, shares her tricks, techniques and shortcuts so you can achieve a perfect design and finish. It contains 10 bag projects so you'll definitely find a bag to suit your needs, skill level and next travel destination! You could choose a Melbourne Weekender, Marrakesh Overnighter or a Barcelona Satchel.  

...and you just might recognise some of the fabric featured inside this beautifully photographed and written book.

Stash Books has very generously offered a Giveaway of The Better Bag Maker. You can win a copy of the Better Bag Maker (hard copy in the US, digital version for the rest of the world). All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favourite bag style is. The Giveaway will be open until Friday July 25th.

The winner is Cheryl Bush! Cheryl, please email us with your details and we will arrange for you to receive your copy of Nikki's beautiful book!
