    After having made four and a half of these, I've decided I don't really like doing the ties on the side. I'd like to have snaps instead but have no idea how to put them on....guess I'll go check them out at the notions counter.

    Anyway, yet another.....

    That is so cool. I love your fabrics. I'm not sure how to fasten the sides with a snap either. Let us know what you come up with.,

    Oh, I like it! I have some tiger print in my bow tucks to-do stack. I have made these bags without the ties on the side. I also have used the magnetic snaps in place of the button and loop.

    Nice. Here's a link to a tutorial on how to add a snap to a purse. The snaps I bought at Joann's didn't have instructions, but the ones I bought at the quilt shop did. FYI - I use a seam ripper to make a small hole for the prongs.

    Love that cat.............

    I have read the instructions/pattern for the Bow Tucks, but I still don't understand when you put the fusible fleece on. Is that the first thing you do once the pieces are cut out?
    Thanks.

    Yes, you cut the pieces, put on the fusible fleece, quilt it, then assemble.

    Could you maybe use the magnetic closure things instead of snaps?

    Well, I did Number 5, (gotta add ties and a button) for a friend of mine who needs some cheering up. So I thought this fabric would work well:
