    colee's butterflies bow tuck

    I made this for a customer.. butterflies were her only request... I had this fabric and played around and ended up with this one..
    It has a courdroy bottom and piping to give it a touch of Colleen Casuel Class..lol

    doing the piping is easy.. just lay it between your two pieces and pin and sew.. I happen to have a foot for my machine that has a ridge in it for piping and it makes it smooth going.. but I use to do it without one..

    you can purchase it premade it you want..
    or I make mine if I forget to have some on hand.
    i cut about 3" wide of a fabric strip that i need to length.
    i use cotton rope for the piping itself. I have gotten some from the meat dept at my local grocery store.. just tell them you are making a few roasts.. they give you alot ! I have purchased it from joann's also.
    you lay the cotton rope in the middle of your fabric and fold it in half. then you sew along the rope side to hold it in place.. then i cut the raw edges back to either 1/2" or 1/4" depending.. on my bow tucks I cut it back 1/4".

    Very nice choice of fabrics! Love this one. I've used a zipper foot in place of a piping foot in the past and it's served me well. I've not made one of these, but after seeing your fabric combinations and the addition of the piping, I just might try it. Thanks for sharing.
