Creating a clipping mask in illustrator

Firstly I create a letter with the type tool but you would not be able to turn this into a clipping mask as its not a path its a letter form so next I turn it into an path by going to the drop down list in the tool bar type>outlines>create outlines.Then I choose the image I would like to use for the background and place it behind the letter.Next thing I do is go the the drop down list object>clipping mask>make  and thats that.
