    Can you stand more Bow Tucks?

    These are a couple of purses I made for my DD and DGD. I actually made 4 but in the rush to get two of them shipped I forgot to take pics. The first one is for my DD, the second for my oldest DGD. They all wanted black and white.

    Beautiful. I never get tired of looking at them. I finally bought the pattern........one of these days I will actually make one.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I'm glad you couldn't see the rest of it. LOL I'm using our sun room and there isn't any wall space to put up shelves. Lots of light but no storage space.

    Very nice. I too like the black & white combo. The added red in the first one is wonderful!!

    I love that pattern! Last summer I supersized one and added a zipper pocket that exactly fits airline/train tickets. Used it as my carry on and purse for our wonderful Amtrak vacation, 3 weeks with DD in WA, then plane home. I used very similar black & whites and made myself a matching wallet that is only now beginning to look worn.
    Yours are so crisp and nice looking.
