This is my first review for the Book Review Book Club and I've chosen a non-fiction book to highlight today. I always browse the non-fiction section at my local library in chance that I may stumble upon a cookbook that will make me a hit at home. I'm still looking for that, but in the meantime I happened upon this little gem:
by Lexie Barnes
This book has inspired to me get out my sewing machine, which hasn't seen the light of day in many many years. I really liked the way the author organized the book with the beginning chapters introducing the newbie to the tools, lingo, and tips of the trade. I've been wanting a messenger bag for a long time. But frankly some of the prices that they charge for retail makes my hair curl!! Now, with the instructions that are given I feel like I can actually make one that will fit me perfectly. There are different levels of sewing in this book: newbie, pro, and dare-devil......can you guess which one I am??? I will be making my first bag out of muslin so that I don't waste any beautiful material my first go-round. If you're feeling crafty and like the idea of roaming the aisles looking at beautiful fabric, then I say pick-up this book because you might find a bag that is just right for you!!!
