Cute designs with patterns - BUT - there is zero information on what leather or fabric to use and no instruction on how to work with leather. Some of the bags look like heavier leather and others look lighter weight, so without any advice on what to buy this book is really useless if you (ironically) don’t already know how to make a leather bag.
