    Yes, I jumped on the bandwagon. Here are some pics of my mini-bow tucks. All the fabric came from my stash - no new purchase here (except of course the pattern).

    I didn't have any fusible pellon but I had some thicker stabilizer and Heat-n-Bond so I used that instead with only one layer between the outer bag and lining. Also, I didn't have a big button so I took left over ties and knotted it for a temporary fix.

    I've made quite a few handbags and found this pattern not that difficult at all but I chose to do some steps out of order 'cause it just flowed more naturally that way for me. If you are more of a visual person (which I am), you might find the instructions a bit difficult to follow. But fun to make - my next one will be bigger!!

    I loved the way you put the flower in the center of the pocket and I had to laugh when I saw the inside, you're the first one I've seen that showed one full of stuff - shows you can really pack a lot in there! Great job!

    That's so pretty. I bought the pattern and am waiting to try it (because of lack of pictures...I have a hard time following instuctions). When I actually do try this, I hope it turns out like yours. :-D

    That's a pretty purse. I especially like the fancy stitching on the pocket. Good work! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Great bag...and, personally, I like the knot on the front instead of a button! Very nice!

    I had a little bit of a hard time following the instructions, too. I'm very visual, too. I love your purse. Very good job!

    That's 'cause I used it yesterday when we went to breakfast and only took pics today.

    Thank you everybody - now to decide on colors and fabric for the next one

    I think this is my favorite Bow Tucks bag so far. Colors are great and seeing it "packed up" was a treat.
