Synopsis:

Thirty projects from 23 countries offer a world-wide representation of bags, from Asia and Africa to Europe and the Americas. From the fish-shaped Japanese felted bag to the Persian carpet-inspired handbag, each bag is a product of its cultural history. Each pattern begins with a brief history describing the source behind these contemporary interpretations of folk designs. Folk stories also accompany many projects. Included are designs for bags for work or play, and bags of all shapes, colours, textures, and sizes. Using this collection, knitters can create bags for children, for market, for everyday, or for a special evening event.

About the Author:

Vicki Square of Fort Collins, Colorado, learned to knit from her grandmother more than 30 years ago and has been designing her own garments ever since. Her designs have been both self-published and featured in Spin-Off and Fashion Knitting magazines. She won the 1990 National Knitting contest sponsered by Fashion Knitting and has shown her pieces in juried art shows in Colorado, Oregon and Illinois. Vicki has taught knitting for more than ten years, as well as painting and drawing at Colorado State University.
