    Bow tucks purse

    Hi, I'm new...maybe this doesn't belong in this section...couldn't decide....it is quilting related, but I didn't quilt mine! I just wanted to say that I finished my first Bow Tucks Purse yesterday. Today I took it to my church Fall supper and auction. My purse was a hit! Everyone wanted me to empty it out and put it in the auction!! I didn't feel like it was good enough for someone to buy since it was my first and I made a few correctable mistakes! I read a lot of the archived posts and feel fortunate that I was able to dicipher the instructions. Looks like a lot of folks had trouble figuring them out! I can't wait to make another and I know I will be getting phone calls to make some for some of my friends!

    Hi Casi and welcome from NE Ohio. The Bow Tuck bags are like Lay's Potato Chips, you can't make just one. I've made 5 so far and have requests for at least 3 more. Gota love those bags.

    Welcome Casi! Once you have one bow tuck under your belt, it becomes addicting!

    I just used a bow tuck as a fundraiser. I made the bag. Other association members brought gift cards. I put them on foam board and added a wallet, gloves, hand sanitizer and lotion. It was a hit and raised a lot of money.

    My wife and I are making bags for Christmas gifts and we have that exact fabric choice picked out for some of them...its beautiful btw
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    This is my first. It isn't as dramatic as a lot of the other purses I've seen on here but it looks really good "in person"!

    I'd love some pattern suggestions for matching accessories like check book covers, coin purses, etc. Getting ready to start my next one today! Got lots of ideas!!

    So happy your purse turned out so pretty! I bought patterns for both the small and larger bow tuck purses, but thus far haven't made either. After reading your post, I'm ready to get out my pattern and get busy making one! Thanks for sharing your positive experience!

    Welcome, and I agree that once you have made one bag you NEED to make more - they are great. I have made 4 and on the last one I put side pockets on and gave it to my DD to use as a baby bag. She puts everything she needs for Eviee - 8 weeks old and adorable -- and so many of her friends ask her where she bought it - nice feeling LOL !!

    I have made several of the bow tucks, and now I have a person wanting one but she wants a zipper in hers I am just not sure if I can do one with a zipper. I sure hope to figure it out.
