    I posted a couple weeks back the quilt my dh made.. I use it every morning and every night !
    I make bow tuck bags and he wanted to try one out of curiosity. He had nothing to lose so i gave him the directions, talked him thru it and wah lah !!!
    I can not believe he does this... never say never because I don't anymore !

    wow, he made a great job of that, it's really pretty. I guess he is going to feel a bit silly with it, though, when he goes shopping LOL.

    Does he have shoes to match?

    i wish i could get my dh to do projects with me or be at all interested in sewing. when i talk to him about stuff like that his eyes glaze over and all the lights go out. you must be very happy to have your dh share your interests with you and he did a great job!!

    I think his work is wonderful. He did a great job. You have a keeper there - especially since he follows directions so well. LOL

    Your DH's bow tuck bag is very pretty. He did a great job. Tried to used your DH as an example to get my DH to quilt, but so far he still says, that he will just leave the quilting stuff to me. :D

    Totally cool. He did a great job.

    My husband's brother has made more full sized quilts that I have! Some men are just good at this.

    I think it is sewwww nice that your hubby is really comfortable with his masculinity and can show a side that some men just wouldn't. I would give him a hug for being a wonderful person to share the hobby of quilting with. You go guy!!!
