Really nice course. Clearly explained step by step. I am planning to buy the second bag course. I would welcome other bag courses or course how to make a purse.

I enjoyed the class. I made the bag using a floral print for the center motif and it turned out well. Nancy is a great instructor and shows you how to do things each step of the way.
