As with my other PDFs, you guys know I cannot sew with a traditional (e.g. Butterick's, McCall's) pattern. Like my middle child, I am a visual learner and linear thinker! (Autism buzzwords that you might be familiar with!) So ...there is one step per page with an accompanying picture. It takes you step-by-step. We have some steps just to explain and set up for the next step and require little to do! The PDF has also been formatted to be cut and stapled resulting in a mini instructional booklet allowing you to do one step per page. It's formatted so that it's in a small size that will not take too much room on your sewing area. You can do each step at a time and flip the page to get to the next step. The entire PDF can be printed out on regular 8.511 paper on your desktop printer. The materials cost is minimal: you can use beloved scrap fabric left-over from previous projects! So with little money spent on materials, you can start your own craft booth and make some side income. This project can even be hand-sewn if you don't own a sewing machine. (There are many who are struggling in this economy and have to pinch pennies.) We strive to teach you a new skill that is a low-cost way to start your own business. This is a PDF that will teach you skills to create meaningful, useful, functional and beautiful items that you can sell at your local church bazaar, school fundraiser or local crafts fair ... or Etsy shop. Instructions and pictures are copyrights of and Khuong LLC 2013. No reprints permitted. The purchase of this listing allows you the full legal ability to use my templates to make your own bags and clutches and sell at your local arts/crafts shows, school events, in-home hostess parties, or even on Etsy. There are no restrictions to make, to sell, and to start a new business! :) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You need to know how to use a sewing machine: straight stitch (forward) and secure stitch (forward, back, forward again) to secure it. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Various: 3 differently-sized bags.

I am the #1 US seller of purse frames, Gutermann glue, and clutch PDFs. What to do while the baby naps? This was the central question for which I started my business in 2001. I had 3 cute little buggers all within four years! It seemed there was always at least one baby napping! Knowing the tough market for part-time jobs (it's pretty much a fallacy to find a 9-2pm job), I started cutting and sewing while my babies were napping. I started thinking about other women like me: stay-at-home moms who wanted to do something while their babies were napping. Because there's always laundry, dishes, and endless things on the to-do list, I thought they could be making clutches (like me) as a creative outlet that resulted in some real income. I almost named it "M.O.M. Ventures" standing for "My Own Money". Since then, I've grown to become the #1 US seller of purse frames and best-selling PDF tutorials. My sister, Thy, joined the business in 2011 and we've grown in a manageable way where we both can still stay home and raise our kids. (We have 5 between us.) I have also come to realize that there are many women out there, not just SAHMs, who want a creative outlet or to make some income. I have worked with retirees, grandmas, college students, nurses, teachers ... all of whom have a need for a creative outlet that lets them create something. My name is Winn and my work has been Putting Women in Business.
