Do you have a class for this purse? I bought the pattern. I am a beginner I even got the material. Do you sell a video of how to make this. Ty for your time.

Sorry, there's no class for this purse. If you've sewn anything from a pattern before or taken a basic sewing class I bet you can make this bag!

I am interested in making the Reto Necktie Handbag. Do you have a pattern or class I can take for this. It is for a lady who's husband has passed away - she gave me these ties & has no idea of that I would like to make her something from these ties as a keepsake in memory of her husband. Thanks Gail

Can the Tie bag be made with silk ties? Or should it be made with polyester or cotton? Thank you for your recommendations!

I think you can use either type. Be sure to stabilize thinner fabrics with interfacing.
