This technique is in the bag! Join bag-making expert Lisa Lam as she shares easy-to-follow instructions for creating refined, durable bags using exterior and interior purse frames. She'll share expert advice, tips and step-by-step instruction to create two purses, the Easy Peasy Purse clutch bag and the roomy Carpet Bag.
Meet instructor Lisa Lam, expert handbag-pattern designer. Lisa starts class by helping you choose frames for the Easy Peasy Clutch Bag you'll make in class. Then, find out how to draft the pattern for any frame, even adding pleats or gathers for easy glamor.
