    I recently made a bow tucks and wondered about the same thing. I decided to close mine, because I know how loose change can find its way under the bottom & I didn't want it to get in between the lining & the outside fabric.

    I made a covered hard board bottom to put inside to make the bottom stable. I put that inside the open hole
    and then just hand stitched it closed. It doesn't have to
    be perfect. No one sees it anyway. I just didn't want
    raw edges fraying in there. You could also glue it shut.

    Diddo. I only left the lining open and pulled it together and stitched with machine. It leaves a small "incision" but looks great in the bottom of the bag.

    You cannot get the pattern for free. You have to purchase it.

    I would love to see them all. Everyone is so different and I love to see the different fabrics everyone uses.
