    I love these purses and was just wondering what kind of level of experience is needed!! I am pretty new at a sewing machine as i have only made 2 quilts so far!!

    Also was wondering where is the best place to get the pattern from? Thanks from Holly

    I googled when I got my pattern. I don't remember where it came from. It was on sale. Lots of Online store carry it.

    They are not difficult...I am sure you could handle it with ease. Just completely read through the pattern before you begin.
    As to where to get the pattern...you might be able to get it at your LQS. I know several people who have gotten the pattern at Connecting Threads, also. Just google Connecting Threads. Sometimes they have the pattern bundled with a fabric set so you are already to begin your bag.

    Most LQS I have been in have them, although some only have the small version. The pattern is available at this site and shipping is free. http://henriettashandbags.com/bow_tu...e_pattern.html This is the link to the large one, but they also have the small one.

    This is where I purchased my Bow Tucks pattern. She is a regular on here and offered free shipping on the pattern.

    This is where I order my Bow Tuck pattern. I got the tote pattern first and found it to be a little big for me. I then ordered the mini bow tuck pattern. It is perfect for me. Be careful. Making these bags is addictive.

    Could you give us a link to the tutorial, please? Oops, spoke too soon! We like our three better without the inside pocket, just put in a small one instead. Much easier to sew!
