Learn. Make. Sell. All about clutches.


If you’ve never bought from me, I understand that I haven’t earned your trust as a seller.  So please read some testimonials below from others who have bought from me before.  I have over 4000+ customers on Etsy alone, and my repeat rate is around 60%.  I strive to be honest and transparent in dealing with my customers, whether you order a make-your-own kit and may never go into business, or you order 500 frames in one fell swoop.  (All major buyers start with 1 frame “to try” from me, so I treat everyone with the same level of customer service and respect.)  It truly is the relationships from these amazing women that I’ve developed over the years that I LOVE my job.

In addition, my Etsy shop allows me to see some statistics about how I conduct my shop.  Below are screenshots of my record on Etsy since opening that shop in 2009.

This demonstrates our strive to give you the best customer service so you keep coming back!

*I’ve kept all these testimonials anonymous but each one is from a unique customer.  Testimonials are from customers of both stores: and


“I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences buying on etsy, but shopping at whilebabynaps has been one of my best etsy experiences to date! Very courteous, prompt, & quick order delivery! I will do business again!”

“Customer service is so important. I don’t care what the product is, if the customer service is sub-par, I will not purchase from that seller. In the case of your shop, whilebabynaps, not only are the products the bees knees, but so is the customer service! I am new to Etsy, and have been lucky enough to have only positive experiences. But I have to say, your shop, products, information, downloads, speed of shipping, and promotion of our shops have been outstanding. I ordered one of your kits to try, as I had not made a clutch with a metal frame before. Patterns, instructions and photos were great. I was quite pleased with the result…”

“Thanks for all you do as a seller and to help your customers! You’re awesome and a blessing to SO many!!”

“She is not kidding when she promote her sellers. I love it that she does that. I doubt others do that. I bought lots of fabric from States, but none of them are willing to promote you. She got the right mindset, if us, as seller able to sell more, than we would order more from her. It’s a give and take thing.”

“Your products are of excellent quality. They were shipped to me very quickly and securely and when I needed some help working out the gluing method, you responded in under 24 hours.  I would not hesitate to recommend your shop.”

“I admire the business that you’ve built AND that you help women as much as you do!”

“Amazing seller, THE BEST customer service on ETSY!!”

“Always a pleasure to do business with! Thanks for giving us single moms an opportunity to support our families! Will do business with again.”

“Love this seller. Great products, very fast delivery, and excellent customer service. Superior quality.”

Frame Quality:

“I have tried a couple different brands of frames and I have to say yours are the best, nicest finish and feel the most durable!”

“These purse frames are FABULOUS! They are exactly what I have been looking for. The quality is superb. My package arrived here so quickly; I could not believe it was my order that I JUST placed! You are wonderful to work with and I hope to send you photos of my finished work soon! Can’t wait to start! Thank you so much!”

“The frames really have nice coating. I also check all supplies deliver to me and they look great. Knowing that there nickel free makes me feel great using it. She stands by her product and has the guts to give you 30days money back guarantee. Where can you find any better seller?”

“BEAUTIFUL finish on the frames! Thanks so much for your speedy shipping and wonderful service!”

“I’m so happy with the quality of my purse frames! This seller ships quickly and responds immediately to pre-sale questions.”

“The finish on these is beautiful! Fast shipping and well packaged thank you!”

BLOG tips:

“Helpful Hints” under blog Categories to get archive of previous blog tips.

“I just wanted to thank you for the Square-Up recommendation on your FB page, it works like a charm and will be perfect for doing festivals!”

“The blog about sewing the clutch with unfinished seams was helpful – that method is so much better and faster.”

“I can see she put alot of heart into her work. She keeps it updated with lots of great information. She even gave me a direct link on how to plan my next order to save on my shipping. Shipping does not come cheap, so every penny counts! Read on her blog, you will get lots of information and knowledge.”

“Winn, love your service and advise. Put alot of heart into your blog and spend time to answer my mails. Really appreciate it. Thanks for the refund in overcharge shipment.  Keep it up girl!!”

“She should work for a call center because she have a fast response time. She gets back to you quickly which helps a lot when I place my first order. She is very friendly and leads me to the right link on her blog.”

Gutermann glue:

“I have to tell you that from Gutermann’s glue I will never stray. I actually lost the glue you sent and had another fabric / all-purpose glue that worked perfectly on a fabric-to-rubber project I worked on earlier. So I tried it on my fabric clutch and metal frame, and it was a complete mess. The glue was too runny and got all over the fabric. The purse was ruined. I know you blogged in no uncertain terms about how good Gutermann’s is and how you’ve ruined other purses in your experiments with other brands, but I was too impatient to either buy more glue from you or actually look for my lost Gutermann tube. I guess sometimes I have to learn to hard way. Anyway, I did find the tube, and was so happy to subsequently make a successful clutch with great ease. Gutermann’s was so much better.”

“I have tried many different kinds of adhesives and hands down this is the best…quick ship too! Thank you”

“The glue was amazing! Set quickly but not too quickly! And my first purse turned out AWESOMELY!!! I made the clutch on Saturday and used it the very next day without any issues whatsover!!!”

“Love this Glue. And the pattern for the clutch was super easy to follow! Thanks for everything!


“I want your mail man! This box came SO fast I couldn’t believe it was already here today. Thanks again for your superb customer service and quality products. I appreciate it!”

“Amazing seller! 🙂 Ordered Sunday evening & received order Wednesday. AND we are on opposite coasts (NJ to CA) I’ve used similar frames from other sources and these are, by far, the highest quality. “

“As always a positive experience! Ordered Friday afternoon and received on Tuesday! Thank You!”

“Yay! Got the components to make a bag fast. This seller has you covered if you want to make a clasp clutch. Thanks again!”

“Excellent customer service with attention to packaging and FAST shipping. Love the combined shipping rate =) Will be back.”

Refunds on excess shipping costs paid:

Clear Policies.

“Awesome seller, very fast shipper, HONEST shipping rate!”

“ I love a seller who is always honest. She refund my over charge shipping instantly once my goods are out. She was honest to let me know that my order of a kit plus additional frames, which I place together, are more than enough using one glue. I don’t need to buy another one. This saves me money. She also finds the cheapest method to send me the package which is greatly appreciated.”
“I liked that I got refunded for the excess I paid in shipping. That’s really sweet and completely unexpected! That kind of service ensures I’d totally come back for more. 🙂 Can’t wait to start! :)”

“Great, quality product received much more quickly than anticipated. I even received a credit less than 24 hours after payment because the shipping ended up being less than expected (per policy). I will definitely order my purse materials from this seller again!”

“Awesome! And thank you for refunding the unused shipment cost!”

  2. I made my very first coin purse using your template and following your instructions. I couldn’t be happier with it!
    I will definitely be making more of these little beauties as well as the larger clutches. Thank you for your eye to detail; it made all the difference in the final product.
