I say ladies, some males may possibly be able to help me....
Anyway, I'm looking at doing some sort of clothing fashion degree in a year, but i havn't got any experience past simple clothing repairs and customizing or accessory (badges mainly) making, and would like to try and make some bags to try and get some experience. does anyone know of any good website that they have found good tutorials or handy tips, or does anyone have any tips themselves? Iv googled but theres loads, and loads that have nothing of use, so hoping maybe someone had their own success from online tutorials/tips, or just happened across a wonderful site that I would only find by accident, or even advice on a really helpful book. Id maybe like to start making a simple clutch like on ebay 170522033285 , just for personal, not to sell, unless i do get good. It looks simple but Im struggling to figure out how to add the lining and hide unsightly seams etc
any help would be greatly appreciated, i mite be terrible at it, but Id like to at least try.

Have you looked on you tube?


yeah, i meant to mention that, some are rubbish, so maybe someone has bookmarked some good vids?
and personally i prefer to have written instructions with pics rather than watch a vid, iv always worked better that way, so i wouldnt mind buying a good recommended book. but I wouldnt rule out vids

i will of course keep looking myself, but I may miss something good, and I want some time to do aswel as research. thankyou though :D
