    I know I am reviving an old thread, sorry about that.
    I finally made the bowtuck bag.... and wouldn't you know it, I get it done and am ready to put the last thing... the button...
    and I got my button loop on the wrong side!! so my button will end up on the back... GRRR

    Wish I knew an easy way to fix it, but at least it was nothing major, just the bag will have the button on the back.

    Want to say thank you to the op for this wonderful thread, there were a few times I came back here because I got lost.
    The pictures helped wonderfully! Thank you
    My Etsy store, more will be added soon.
    Rha! Designs

    LOL I did the same thing on another kind of bag I made. I just left it. No one has ever noticed.

    And you're very welcome.

    I am making the first of these bags and I'm wondering if you can get by with one layer of the Pellon? It seems to me that two layers is going to make it so puffy that it will be difficult to quilt with free-motion designs. And aren't the seams reallllllly thick and stiff with four layers of Pellon in them? Thanks for your thoughts on this!

    You will lose stiffnes mostly. If you like a bag a little floppy, then that would be fine. But I would make sure I put the interfacing on the outside of the bag for wear and tear reasons. And make sure your lining is sturdy. You could put a thin fusible on the lining and that should be good.

    Remember, patterns are like a chilli recipe, it is merely a guideline.

    I went ahead and followed the directions as far as using the pellon on both lining and the body - I'm almost at the assembly stage. The quilting is only done on one layer, so that turned out to be a non-issue. And once I started working with it, I realized that the fleece isn't nearly as thick or dense as I had previously thought. So far, so good.

    Thank you! Great idea!

    A yard is 36 inches.

    The first one i did took me a couple days (working off and on). I did a fake one with newspaper and scotch tape first. didn't use all the details, just the basic parts. Once you do the first one, very easy to get one done in less than a day.
    Now I'm not so scared to try it!! and will make it with paper first... great idea! Tanks!

    The very last update

    Just finished the project. Tutorial was not very helpful. One needs to read and re-read the original instructions. I still wonder what is the problem with posting better pictures with complete steps.

    I had difficultis with boxed corners. Using Pythagorean theorem I was able to create the correct size for the cornes. Fun, don't you think? Hopefully you will see the picture of my new bag. Love it!
