    I don't get tired of seeing the Bow Tucks. I don't remember who introduced us to this bag but many of us benefited from her making the first one.

    I love the colors of this one. Your husband has a good eye for color combinations. Keep showing the bags as you make them.

    Nice! I enjoy seeing all the different fabric combinations. How is the selling on eBay going? If you don't mind me asking, how much are you selling them for? I sent a Bow Tucks bag to my mother and some of her friends would like me to make bags for them. They are willing to pay $50-60 per bag. Does that sound about right?

    I agree. The people who have seen my bags in person are the ones who want to buy them. They would probably be good sellers at craft shows/bazaars. I thought $60 seemed high. $40-50 sounds more reasonable to me.

    You can't go wrong with a bow tuck bag in those beautiful colors! Very nice. I think it is cool that you are selling them for such a good price.

    Great looking bag. Your DH has an eye for fabric. I'm curious.... What are you selling your bags for on ebay?
