Call me crazy, but when I received my name tag on the first day at the Sew South Retreat and saw "Instructor" under my name my stomach did a flip and my heart skipped a beat. I can't tell you how nervous and excited I was to teach my class.
Six months ago, when Jennifer and I first talked about me teaching the framed clutch purse class I did not have a lot of confidence in my teaching skills.
The night before I was to teach, a large group of us went to dinner at PF Chang's and this was in my fortune cookie. Seriously? After that moment I was no longer nervous, but confident that the class was going to be a hit.
It certainly was. You can tell by the beautiful clutch purses that everyone created.
Here I am, "proud mama", with all the beautiful clutch bags everyone created.

You can't see the tears, but I was so overwhelmed that my class was so well received and everyone created such beautiful purses.
Thank you to Pellon (for the interfacing and Thermolam) and While Baby Naps (for donating the frames) for sponsoring this class. Their products make this clutch so much easier to make.
If you would like to make this clutch, my pattern is for sale on Craftsy...see the link on my sidebar.
