It seems like in sewing I do what I do in cooking....look at the directions and then say....mmm but I want to do it a little different.
Here's my effort at a bow tuck this afternoon. I've already got my machine scheduled for a service and boy does it show that I really need it worked on.
The cow purse is to hold some "moola".
The springy little tote is what I ended up with when I kept looking at pictures and thought " I can do that too but want it smaller". Duh, I didn't take the edges into account correctly when I "shrunk" the sizes in my mind. I didn't have pattern to go from when I did it.
Now I have the actual pattern and still didn't follow directions. I wanted the handles to go all the way down the front sides of the pockets so there'd be more "cow" showing.
My moola bow tuck
I used a cloudy plastic for the inside pockets that I saw someone else use
I liked how the handles looked going all the way down to the edging
My no pattern trial
I only put 1 pocket on one side since it was so small
