Using wonderful fabrics, trims, and accents, the talented designers from Ruby Tag Bags have created more than 25 fabulous, one-of-a-kind purses that women will have to own and love to make. The design romance begins with classic materials, including colorful crazy quilts, delicate lace, and vintage velvet; unique adornments such as glistening mother-of-pearl buttons; and pretty ribbon and floral embellishments. Even the project names--like Camelot , Polka Dance , and Lady of Spain --have a touch of magic. The collection includes small evening bags, larger totes for travel to those exotic faraway locales, elegant silk designs, and enchanting purses with silver chains, gold linings, and looped fringe. In addition to showstopping color photos of each project, there are patterns to make construction simple.

The book was fun to look at but the projects are very impractical. It would be very difficult (and expensive!) to procure all of the materials needed for a project. The author seemed to assume that everyone has a bin full of antique and high-end fabric, laces, ribbons, etc. to draw their materials from. You can get good visual inspiration from the book if you are into embellished handbags, but I didn't think I could reasonably make one of the purses.
