    Christmas wall ahnging and yes, another bow tucks bag

    Christmas wall hanging in Courthouse Steps block. I managed to finish in time to hang for the Christmas season. And of course, one has to make a bow tucks bag for the Christmas season!

    Wow - both are beautiful! Did you use a pattern for the bag? I would love to make one, but have never made a bag before. I would love to know where to find the instructions.

    The Bow Tuck Bag pattern is by Penny Sturges and you can get them on ebay. Here's a listing for a mini bow tuck (which is what I bought. It's a nice size bag, 11" X 10" X 5". The regular Bow Tuck is big enough for a diaper bag).

    Both are really pretty! I'd love to make a bow tucks purse but I don't have the pattern. I guess I'll look for it after Christmas. I think they would make great gifts for next year. I decided I have to start making Christmas stuff in July next year so I don't have this mad rush in Decemeber when I could be socializing more. And baking. And decorating.
