With original designs ranging from a small evening bag to a funky shopper, each bag is accompanied by a beaded accessory made in the same manner. The beading techniques can also be used to make tiny beaded motifs to apply to ready-made accessories. Backed with all the technical help and guidance on the materials and equipment needed, this selection of easy-to-make bags is suitable for the beginner as well as the experienced bead crafter looking for new and up-to-the-minute ideas.
