The one hands-on class I took at Sewing Summit was "Metal Frame Purse" with Kelly of kelbysews, who has oodles of cute samples on her blog. Even though I had made one metal frame purse before, it had a sew-in frame.
Basically, these little purses aren't difficult to construct, but I was a bit apprehensive about that glue-in variety!
So this is my one finish from my time at Sewing Summit. Just a little (8" wide) project, but I have a feeling it'll open a new world as far as making little purses goes.
