I hesitated before buying this book, after reading the negative reviews on Amazon, saying that this new Lisa Lam book is a copy of 'The bag making bible'.
I am glad I didn't listen to them.
I already own the first book and indeed some of the techniques and pictures are repeated.
But they perfectly blend in with new work.
It is essential reference information you need, if you don't have the other book.
The layout of the book is lovely, printed on high quality paper and I am very happy with the spiral bound: much easier to keep the book open.
There are full size patterns, ready to use.
It would have been useful to have an envelop at the back to keep the patterns tidy , but I am going to add one myself.
I haven't started a project yet, but I am planning to make some of them.
I will let you know how I get on.
