    That's what I'd like to know. I've been looking for a freebie, but no luck yet. Maybe just use a standard tote pattern and add a pocket on the front and ties on the side?
    I ordered mine from Amazon. Have been too busy to make it yet, but after seeing all the pics I am getting soooo ready!

    I love my bow tuck bags, especially for travel and have made 3 (don't have a pic of my black and white)and one diaper bag. Use the search and put in bow tuck and you'll come up with alot of beautiful examples by the talented people on this board. I think there is a tute for part of the assembly. I've made them with longer handles and magnetic snaps for Joann's.

    Here's a link to mine: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-56560-1.htm

    I have made 13 of these and kept 3. One for summer, one for winter and one for fall. I use mine as a purse all the time and love them. I just use a button and things seem to stay in good.

    Get a $1.00 place mat from dollar store or wally world. One is enough for 2 bags.

    I have made three for myself, and use them all the time. I do not put the pockets in, as I find i like nice roomy bags, and I seem to spend more time looking in each pocket for whatever I am searching for when i have a bag that is divided into pockets

    @ wvdek: what is metal measure? I made a purse and am now going to make another. I did make it with a zipper and found it was annoying to close the nylon zippers. I love all the pockets in these purses....

    I received mine as a gift. While driving I set it on the seat next to me. Almost every time I brake, it falls off and the contents dump. It has a button ( I rarely use).... perhaps I'm learning impaired?? I could turn it the other way or set it on the floor! LOL

    I wonder if for the metal closure they are talking about using part of a metal tape measure. Just a guess!

The last time my mom had her hair done, she said that all the ladies at the beauty salon were "ooing and aahhhing" over her purse! I use the magnetic closure and it seems to work great for me. I don't like fussing with a loop and button. I may try putting the bottom stabilizer into the lining on my next bag - sounds like a great idea.
    Great job ... yours look like Vera Bradleys ! :)

    Karen: The Mom's bag is beautiful! I like the other two too, but especially the mom bag.

    I use mine and yes, things fall out if I throw it in the back seat of the car. Otherwise it isn't too bad.
