I can't recommend this book enough - Sue Kim's "Bags, the Modern Classics". I've only made two of the 19 projects and they have been easy, stylish and quick. Clear instructions and easy to follow picture tutorials, I'm impressed with how simple it was to create this great little clutch bag.
And the best part was the book was from Spotlight and it wasn't expensive and all the fabrics were already in my stash. All I bought was the magnetic snap and some heavy weight interfacing. Bargain all over.
Get yourself some.
