    I was like that too and just decided to jump in with both feet. So far I have it all done just have to attach the handles and sew the inside to the outside. I was afraid to start for a long time but glad I did. Just read and reread the instructions and also the bow tuck picture tutorial was also a big help:) You can do it can't wait to see your finished bag!

    I was the same way, I had the pattern but was afraid to start it. Well, I finally got it done, but noticed after I was finished that I put the the loop on the wrong side so the button is also on the wrong side. Oh well, other than that it looks ok.

    I did that too on my first purse that I made. If you don't tell anyone, they won't know that you have it on the wrong side. :D

    Sounds like something I would do. I still haven't bought the pattern but need to. Can you tell me where you all ordered yours from? Thanks.

    Once you make one, they are very easy. I love making them.

    Are you the person that was going to make it out of a ASU or AUS (military uniform?) I can never keep those letters right :lol: I never thought to check out ebay for a pattern. Thanks.

    I don't remember where I ordered it from. I think I googled "bow tuck tote" and got several hits from quilt shops. I paid $9.00 for it but shipping was free, which was actually cheaper than ordering it online from some of the large fabric stores.

    Hehe yeah its me,out of my husbands ACU's or Army Combat Uniform. Gotta love the acronyms, my neighbor is a quilter she said she wouldn't mind teaching me so I may wait until she gets back from out of state to make sure im doing it right. However Im thinking to make it easier next time that when I cut each piece to trace it on paper so next time It will be easier for me. Then trace those on cardboard or poster board to have like a "hard" copy.

    I bought the patterns for both the regular and mini bow tucks and was really surprised at how poorly they were done. I just don't understand why more pictures and diagrams weren't included.

    I agree! Just reading it is like another language for some, others understand it just fine.
