I took this class after taking Nancy's other bag class and both bags turned out beautifully! I am a new sewer and I was able to make both bags with no problems whatsoever. I made this one for my 22 year old daughter and she loved it. I get loads of compliments on them and most people don't even believe they are homemade! I have gained so much knowledge and confidence from this class. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Thank you Nancy!
