Afterwards, I wanted to make another bag-different style-but couldn't figure out how to make my own measurements, etc. Taking this class really helped me with the basics of making a bag "my own". Yes, I had to watch the video a few times to put it all together, but now that I've done it, I know it.

Great Course, Happy i Bought It!

As a newbie sewing I found this course extremly helpful. Brett's explanations are clear and the images too.
I also find very useful all the coments related.
All the four bags presented are gorgeus and the details and pattern given really give all necessary tools to make your dream-bag after your own design.

This is a wonderful class because you learn all the basics and the different zipper techniques that can be applied to your own designs later on. The name says it all! Thank you!

Excellent Class

Thank you for such a great learning tool. I have been making plain totes for years now and I can finally advance my designs using your video.
Everything was explained carefully and easy to understand. So glad to see a demonstration of zipper installation and will reference back to your video often.
Your final products are very professional looking and would look great out and about.
