Akemi loves to quilt and
she has passed on her love in
this book so that you can
make beautiful bags and gifts.

At the beginning of the book
you are given step-by-step
instructions on how to quilt, patchwork,
applique, binding & finishing techniques.
You even get an embroidery guide
with all the stitch you will use.

I love that each design is unique.
I also love that some of the projects
are paired so you can make matching
bags in different sizes.

There are diagrams for each of the projects
so even if you are a beginner you can
still complete the projects.

Akemi uses different fabrics
to create beautiful designs.
There really is so much to make
and you will find it hard to choose
which to make first.

I think my favorite has to be the Hawaiian Carryall.
The use of the different fabrics 
with the quilted design as well
really makes a beautiful bag.

The bluebird basket & tea mat
are great fun and I love the bird within
the top of the basket.

I can't wait to make the floral
scissor caddy.
I also want to make the pastoral wall hanging
for my sheep themed room :-).


A beautiful book with beautiful designs!
