    Very professional job - I like the colors and your finish work is excellent. I have been making many of these lately - my friends and my mom's friends all want one - so now I am adding $$$ to increase my fabric stash.

    Thank you so much for you detailed answer...I love to do MASS sewings..so I would wash, iron, cut, and prepare several at one time...is this possible with this bag..it appears to be from your pix...
    I am thinking I need 12-15 done by Christmas...and I have three 3 day retreats in there to work solely on them!

    yes you can do mass productions... do all the cutting of each bag and fleece and bag them in zip locks
    then you can do handles, ties... pockets.. whatever you wanted.. makes them go together pretty darn fast that way. i have done 4 at a time in that manner..worked out good to have them all cut and bagged.

    yes.. i charge money.. but not as much as i should.. but it does allow me to buy more stash and continue to be creative. I am not trying to buy a house with making bow tucks ..lol.. I just like the joy of making them and watching them come to life and I love it when someone wants one per their request of fabrics.. good for a smile and it works for me !

    does the designer "allow" you to make them for resale? I know most prohibit you making them for selling..but some allow a certain number..you have to ask for permission first either way..

    Frequently Asked Questions







    Making bags for resale?







    Can I make your tote bags for resale?



    Yes, as long as you are making them by hand on your home sewing machine and the bags are not mass-produced. We also request design credit when selling the bags. This can be a simple as a card included with the bag that says "Designed by Quiltsillustrated"

    Every time I make her something, she takes and shows it off and then they email me with THEIR wishes/desires...I once sold 150 sets of coasters in 3 months to them...well those in Memphis and some in New Orleans..just because I gave her set of Special Saints ones!
    Imagine the cutting/sewing for 150 sets of EIGHT coasters...about wore me and a cutting mat out!
    Let me add that the bottom layer was Ultrasuede and they paid $25 a set for them!

    I find that with these bow tucks bags...once seen they are contagious..
    on hardware... some use the magnetic snaps.. i like buttons because i think it gives it a finished look. i use either a button that matches , lol. or at least I think it does.. or I like to use the buttons that you use your own fabric and cover them . I use the 1 1/2 inch size ..
    I also use beads on mine.. but that is just my preference. I can't tell you the size because I emptied them into a container and threw out the bag.. lol (on the side ties)
