My mom bought this pattern and started making these purses. It's from Quiltsillustrated.com and is called the Bow Tucks Tote. Cute play on words.
Anyhoo, I liked it so much, I asked her to make me one using this cool fabric I bought two years ago at the quilt show in Lancaster.
She did. Then she taught me how to make them and here are some of our tote bags.
