i would like to make a bag like this. how do i find details to do it? i have a stash of beautiful fabrics and this is a great way to enjoy them.
Betz White answered:

Mrs Esther asked:
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.
Betz White answered:
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!
naptimemom asked:
Can the Tie bag be made with silk ties? Or should it be made with polyester or cotton? Thank you for your recommendations!
Betz White answered:
I think you can use either type. Be sure to stabilize thinner fabrics with interfacing.
