    Need opinions. I want to try making some sort of purse and I've searched and read alot of posts about the Bow Tuck pattern but found this one and since it's done with Charm Packs thought it seems it would be fairly simple. Maybe in Christmas fabric?

    This looks really cute. Please post pics of your finished project. Christmas fabric would be great and Halloween as well (smile).

    I've made many purses with charm packs and they come out very nice. I love the one I use all the time.

    Does yours have a zipper in it? I've never, ever put in a zipper so may need to practice. My sewing knowledge is limited to quilting.

    This charm bag doesn't have a zipper, but I've made many bags that do. As long as you have a zipper foot for your machine I'm sure you'll be able to do it.
