    First Bow Tucks....FINALLY

    Name:  001.jpg
Views: 1976
Size:  1.04 MBAfter many struggles, I have finally made a bow tucks...thanks to "athomenow" without her it wouldn't have happened. There are some imperfections, but I know what I done now, so I won't be making those mistakes again. Also, don't pay any attention to the topstitching. I tried to be complicated and do a decorative stitch, but the fabric was just too thick

    This is very pretty! I love the fabric. Okay I'll tell you right now I haven't a clue what a bow tuck is. No matter what it is this is a cute bag!!! Congrats.

    Really good job. I love your choice of fabrics.
    Bow Tucks are just a pattern name. They're really fun to make and very addicting!

    Nice blue bow tuck bag. I have one cut out at home waiting for the sewing. Can't wait to get it done.

    Watch out, these are addictive. I made 5 purses in about 3 days, not all Bo-tucks. Yours is beautiful.

    Great job Love the color. It took me a couple of years to make the first one and since then ( Aug 2011) I have made 11. I have 3 and I sold the rest to the gals at work. Keep up the good work.

    Oh I know. I was about to pull my hair out trying to figure this thing out. Was to the point of giving up until a member of the board stepped in to help. Now that I've done one, they are very simple and so much fun.

    Love your fabric combination! You will enjoy the bag and you will be amazed at the compliments you will get on it. Be prepared...you will want to make many more!

    I think your bag is very pretty, and I see no flaws! It all looks great to me!

    I want to make one of these, maybe more. But I'm sorta intimidated by it. I see that I can buy the pattern on eBay. Is there a better place, and are all the patterns the same? I want the easiest one I can find. Any hints would be welcome. (I'm so not a seamstress!)

    All patterns are the same if they are Bow Tucks, couldn't find one cheaper than $9 on ebay. They are easy to make but take a little thought in the beginning. If you get stuck you can yell for help. Lots of people have made them. I'm on #16 and have enlarged and made smaller the same pattern.

    I really like your color choices. I've yet to cut out my first piece of fabric for the bow tuck, but I did go to JoAnn's and buy some 'belting' to use for the handles. I figure that I can use matching fabric to cover the belting and it would be stronger than using batting. Beautiful job. Be sure and show us your next one!

    I use the belting too. Works really well for me.

    Very pretty Bow Tuck. I love the fabric. I wouldn't have thought of using such a simple fabric for the outside, but it turned out gorgeous, and I love the fabric you used for the bottom. It makes it look like it is gathered, and the inside fabric matches so nicely. It is just very nice.
