I am on a high! I had the BEST time teaching the Pimp Your Panic Clutch Class last weekend 🙂 As some of you may already know, I am a qualified secondary school teacher and I stopped teaching when I was pregnant with T in 2011. I didn’t realise how much I have missed the classroom since becoming a stay-at-home mum! I loved teaching this bag making class so much that I hope I get to teach bag making again soon.
So, if you know of a quilt/sewing shop who is looking for a teacher, to teach bag making skills and is located in Australia, give them my contact details (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can talk 😀
From all accounts the wonderful ladies who attended Saturday’s class had a fabulous time too. Two ladies who attended had never sewn a bag before, and they told me they learnt a lot and both were extremely happy to walk away with finished Pimped up Panic clutches!
Everyone working hard…
During the class I walked participants through making their own Panic Clutches, as we went along we also added some features to Pimped out our Clutches if we wanted to – with the help of my Pimp Your Panic Clutch E-book that I prepared especially for class participants.
As you can see here – we had lots of laughing going on throughout the day 🙂
I heard from a few of you that you were disappointed you wouldn’t be able to make it to my class…so I have decided to make the Pimp Your Panic Clutch E-book available to you all!
The tutorials included in the e-book are:
-Add a wristlet strap
-Add a cross body strap
-Install a tongue lock (AKA push lock/thumb lock) closure
-Install a “sew in” magnetic closure
-Add a unique strap closure
-Add card pockets in the lining
-Add a zip pocket internally or externally
All tutorials include both written instruction and many colour photos to help you achieve the “look” you are after.
I’m so pleased and happy with the Clutches that were made on Saturday! Aren’t they lovely 🙂 Above (and below) you will see all the makers showing off their beautiful Panic Clutches.
I love how each fabric chosen changes the look of this clutch! Have you made a Panic Clutch lately? I’d love to see it! So please feel free to share them with me via FB, IG, or T 🙂 If you want to use the tags #panicclutch, #pimpyourpanicclutch or #patternsbyemkie that would be awesome too!
I would love to stay in touch with you, so please feel free to sign up for my newsletter here.
