Our members call Lisa Lam's bestseller The Bag Making Bible "amazing," "excellent," "awesome" and "the best." The follow-up is all that and a bag of chips with clever techniques that aren't found in The Bag Making Bible, in addition to 20 all-new projects. Like its predecessor, A Bag for All Reasons features well-written instructions, photos galore to illustrate the projects, myriad ideas for customizing the designs, and full-sized patterns on three separate pull-out sheets. Get a designer look without a designer price with a backpack that converts into a shoulder bag; a roomy diaper bag with pockets-a-plenty; a grocery tote that rolls up small to take up minimum space in your handbag; plus an iPad case, cosmetics bag and lots more.

nothing new and exciting
I had seen this book in stores and was thrilled to be able to buy it for a great price here! There is no area they missed when it came to types of bags, and the instructions are crystal clear. Of all the bag books out there, this is one of my favorites hands down!
When the sneak peek doesn't come on go to your wishlist then back to the sneak peek, and it will work. It does for me. I got to preview the book by doing this.
I was hesitant about purchasing this book but I am so glad that I took a chance and bought it! There are some really neat bags in here that I can't wait to sew! I am interested in sewing the iPad case, tri-fold wallet, diaper bag and messenger style bag. There is so much information in this book about basic sewing! Some of it is also in the Bag Making Bible, but for those who don't own THAT book it is a relief that the information is in the new book as well. VERY well done!
Please don't let the negative reviews affect your decision to purchase this book! It is a shame that some reviewers were using the book review feature to complain about a customer service issue because it has consequently brought the rating down on the book!!! What a shame. :(

This book has a variety of bags, the instructions are detailed and the graphics are also very helpful. The bags shown not only are fashionable today but will carry on into the future. As in her former book, this one is also wonderful and also has those great details on shoring up the bottom and handles to ensure a bag that will last. Love the variety!
