I returned this book on Friday afternoon along with the other five books. It is still listed as checked out.

About a third of this book has projects that start with a plain handbag and then instructs how to decorate it. I would have preferred to have a few more tutorials that start from scratch. There are some cute ideas though, and if you are a no-sew kind of person this could be good inspiration for you.
