I liked this book, it was just what I was expecting ... clever, sometimes off-the-wall, ideas for making bags at home. The subtitle of "Low-sew, no-sew" is true, since many bags need no sewing (staples & duct tape, anyone?), and the ones that do need sewing are so simple even I (!) could manage it!

I also like where she gets her materials from ... she uses things such as placemats and pillowcases which are already sewn, to reduce the amount of sewing required. And the pillowcases are the zippered kind - so no need to sew a zipper!

I think my favorite idea is the simple, vinyl makeup bag, which you melt the seams together using an iron. No sew!

Her ideas were very creative, and even if you don't like any of the bags in the book, it will get you thinking outside of the box and help you make your own creative bag.
