    Too funny! I have the same problem. LOL Too much fun stuff, not enough time. :D

    You can google it and order online from several places. A lot of local quilt shops also have it. Should cost around $6 to $10 depending on where you get it. I can't remember how much I paid for mine.

    Also, there is a smaller pattern called Mini Bow Tuck tote. I just have the bigger (regular) one and modify the measurements when i want a different size.

    I bought the pattern from a LQS and I really did not mind the money I paid for it until I started making it. Cutting it out was a breeze, but I like many are still stuck with the first step (pocket) when sewing it. I think for the money it costs, it could have included better instructions. I have been sewing for 45 yrs and never had this much trouble understanding the instructions for something I made. Very poor instructions... in my opinion.[/quote]

    I know your post was quite a while ago but I had to comment. I am a new quilter - less than a year. I am just about finished with my first Bow Tuck and the whole time I've been working on it I've thought how nervous I am going to be buying patterns in the future. I think this was the WORST when it comes to pattern writing. Like so many others my pattern has been sitting for quite a while because it sounded so hard to do.
    I could not understand why I've heard so many people making so many of them. Well, now that I've made one and see that it is quite simple - if you can decifer the pattern - I can understand that.

    I am SO very glad you posted that this was truly an exceptional hard pattern to understand.

    I took a class a few weeks ago for this bag. Since then I have maade another and aonther cut out ready to make. I am glad I took the class since the gal who taught it made it pretty simple to put together. I agree the instructions should have more pictures but I have noticed all of her patterns are this way. Once you make one you can understand all her patterns.

    I agree about the instructions, too. That was the big reason I did this. I am so glad it has helped sooooo many! :)
