    Christian bow tuck

    This is a customer order..
    The story behind this is as such... this customer had been looking since summer time for a purse/tote for her mother who is very devoted to her religion. She had been unable to find anything at all..then she came to a craft fair and there I was, her dream come true !
    She found the fabric that she wanted...it has sayings all across the fabric in a continuous matter.. she ordered two different colors, same fabric.. I made piping using the light color and I made sure that the scriptures were readable across the tops.. it turned out perfect.
    When this customer picked it up.. tears in her eyes, I knew that I really did make her dreams come true.
    Someone is going to be very happy for Christmas this year...

    I really like your bag. I would like to find that fabric. Did you use a fleece or batting in the middle? Looks like a nice body to it.

    I really want to make this! Are they difficult to make? Saw the patterns on eBay but have not purchased one yet as I won't have time to try it until after the holidays.

    Your work is beautiful, and I love the charms on the ties. Very nice touch!

    ty KerryK... i have made over 60 of these bags... if you take your time and read directions first and then take one step at a time you will be ok.. it may seem overwhelming at first but after the first one you may have several "ah ha" moments and the second one goes much faster... then you become an addict of bow tucks !!
    If you do make one and need help just pm me.. i can help if you need it.

    Your bow tuck bags is gorgeous! And you've sold 60; that's great. I'm always curious how much the purse sold for?

    Lovely purse, and I am sure this ladies Mom is going to be thrilled. You did such a wonderful job on this. I too have the pattern, just have not had the time to tackle it yet. Hopefully after the first of the year. Now if I can figure out how to bookmark this, so if I run into problems I can PM you!!
