    Bow tucks bandwagon

    I jumped on the bow tucks tote band wagon. The pattern is very hard to understand, but as I have sewn for 50yrs I was able to figure it out. I made this for my best friend hope she likes it. She picked out the fabric for it .

    It's a beautiful purse. I love the bow tuck purse better than any other.

    great job and they are fun to make. I too had a hard time with the pattern so I gave up and made up my own.

    Very nice! I've made a lot of Bow Tucks. I think after you make the first one the next ones go together quickly.

    I have had this pattern for going on 2 years and have yet to make it because I have heard it is difficult, however I know that there is a tutorial for it on here so as soon as I can find the pattern I plan on making myself a new purse. BTW your's is quite lovely.

    I LOVE the Bow Tucks you made. The fabric choice is fabulous! So girly and sweet.

    I think if you take it one step at a time that the bag isn't all that hard, just lots of steps to finish. The results are far worth the effort to make it for sure. I have made countless of them and each is so different when the fabrics come into play.

    Very nice. I've been sewing for 50 + years and I too think those patterns are confusing.
