Most patterns and tutorials don't offer explanations for why something is constructed the way it is. Nancy adds that information making this class extra valuable. Her directions are specific, and each step is demonstrated clearly.

Crossbody Bag: Hi Nancy
I have just today completed my first bag. I learned a lot, even as a long time sewer. I will be making others for different seasons and want to thank you for a great learning experience.

Enjoyed this class immensely. The best part was being able to pause the video again, again, and again until I understood it. Did a few boo boo"s but will be starting another bag soon! Loved my first bag!!
