    then anyone can! I made my first bow tuck :XD: and it turned out looking like a purse, I am so thrilled! Just to show you how much of a novice I am, it was my first time sewing on a button ! And I finally did it! It took longer than I thought it would, and I had a problem with sewing on the handles on the wrong side that when I tuned the purse right side out the handles were buried in it (silly me) so I unsewed and redid that, but other than that I thought it was pretty clear what to do. Of course there were steps that I had to read like 10 times to get it, but hopefully it is all a learning experience. My husband walked home from work and shrieked "Wow' when he saw my bow tuck sitting on the table :mrgreen: It feels good!

    So all of you still wondering if you could make a bow tuck, yes you can!

    Great job. I really like your fabric choices. I haven't made the bow tuck yet, but did a tote bag that I love. I think they are lots of fun to make.

    Good job. I read through the pattern/instructions last night. That alone intimidated me. I was hoping that it would be easier once I was actually doing it. Haven't had the courage to start yet.

    I read over the instructions once or twice before I started and I couldn't tell heads from tails and had no clue what I was supposed to do. I still went for it though, and made sure I am understanding every steps before proceeding. It worked! I say go for it :thumbup:
