    Use lots of steam to get that fusible to adhere. I don't like to quilt.

    I just made my first bow tucks. I asked my LQS to do a workshop on it for me because I sometimes have a hard time reading patterns, I learn better by watching than reading. Any way, in answer to your question, there are no pattern pieces included--just dimensions for you to cut the material. So, yes if you mess up you can make extras.

    I love the bow tucks and have made several. I have had complete strangers ask me where I got mine and they are amazed that I made them. I quilt mine because I like the look of them quilted. I also make the handles longer just because I like to sling them over my shoulder. I hand stitch the opening and put fabric covered heavy cardboard in the bottom. Sometimes I made a fabric pocket or I just hot glue a piece of fabric to the cardboard. I am going to make several as Christmas gifts this year for family.
