Every woman has gone through it: you buy the perfect outfit for an event, and you can’t find a matching handbag. The solution: make one yourself! By using small quantities of beautiful fabrics like silks, satins, chiffons, and velvets, and combining them with gorgeous, glitzy metallic threads, you can create any bag from the minimalist to the over-the-top—at a fraction of the store-bought cost. Anyone with basic sewing skills can complete these fabulous 15 projects, including a ruched organza “Shimmering Mist” bag with nestled glistening beads, and an antique-inspired “Granny’s Treasure,” with mother-of-pearl buttons on soft viscose velvet. All the necessary techniques—embossing, slashing, quilting, pleating, cut-work, and hand-dyeing—are outlined with vibrant photography and straightforward instructions.
