    I love them. I would have never thought to choose the tweedy looking fabric. But they are very nice. I really like these.

    Love the tweed look. I might have to look into making one for myself. I just love these purses.

    Hi Colleen: We are thinking alike! I want to make a Bow Tuck from upcycled wool. I just bought 2 Pendelton skirts at the mission, and want to use them for a purse. Maybe will want some contrast with it. Is your tweed wool or upholstery weight fabric? Nice look!

    I made 2 before Christmas. The first one I did for me just in case there were and mistakes. It turned out well. The second for my DIL with oriental fabric, and that one came out really well ! They are both gone now, my other daughter fell in love with mine! Guess I'll have to make me another one!

    That is a great idea to go look for a wool skirt. I am sure right now they have plenty of tweed and such.n Thanks for the idea.

    Where did you get the pattern. I have three granddaughters, one daughter and one DIL plus three sisters and one SIL. What a great bag for gifts.

    Classy. With the tweed it looks high class. Great job. Fabric really can make a remarkable difference. :-D
