    1st Mini Bow Tuck and a special thanks to Zhillslady

    This was my first Mini Bow Tuck done in batiks- still looking for a button. With help from Zhillslady, I persevered through the pattern instructions- I thought there should have been more diagrams. My seam ripper and I really got to know each other. Almost done with the second one done as a Mardi Gras gift and off it will go in tomorrow's mail. The second time around was much easier and I am on a roll. The third one (animal print) is already cut out, too.

    Love your fabrics. Glad you were able to wade through the instructions -- I have read through them and agree that we need a bit more detail. Good job!!

    I have always loved the bow-tucks I see on this site, but, I am inclined more toward purses that I can sling across my chest so I am hands free. Would this pattern lend itself to that type of strap treatment? I have not seen one in person as yet. Not even sure where to find the pattern. Also, does it close or is the top open?

    I put a longer strap on one but didn't care for it personally. The top is open and closes with a button and loop or magnetic closure. I saw one on here that someone had put a zipper in. Looked really good but I doubt I could make it work. I'm not good with zippers.

    I love it. Beautiful batiks. Why don't you get one of those buttons you cover with fabric. Then use that beautiful batik

    Your bag is so cute and colorful, happy you did not give up.

    Love the bow tucks. Have made a dozen for gifts and a couple for myself. I use foam core purchased from $Tree for the bottom and it works great. I like it because it is light weight. I also make the handles 32 inches long and works for over the shoulder. The top is open, but I've never had a problem with that.

    Yummy fabrics!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
