    I finally took the bow tuck plunge

    Thanksgiving I finally decided to try the bow tuck bags. My DD is very fond of it now. The cat print one she has claimed and wants a couple more from some elephant prints she had picked out some time ago. The horse one is a Christmas gift. Still have a couple more of those to make. Thanks for looking and hope this works. I am still getting used to the new format.

    Love the bags. I still haven't gotten up enough nerve to try them.

    I have the pattern but haven't taken the plunge yet. How long did it take to make your first one? These are gorgeous and you have excellent taste in fabric.....since I have the same fabrics

    The pattern is avail on ebay. It took me 6 1/2 hours to make the first one. It gets easier with practice and I can knock one out in 5 or less now. I do them assembly line and cut out several all at once and do all the pressing of pellon and makeing the ties, handles and pockets. Then the final assembly is so fast. I love them and have 8 ready to be sold.

    The pattern is called Bow Tuck bag. There is also a mini version if you prefer smaller. The pattern is available in many LQS or on line shops. I finally purchased one at a small LQS in AL last fall. It is quite simple to make. The longest part of the process is quilting the larger pieces.

    Since I only get to work on these projects for an hour or so 3 or 4 days a week, it took me several days to finish. I guess maybe 5-6 hours total time. Not at all difficult. You cannot really see it in the picture, but I added piping to the top of the horse bag. I really like the effect of the piping. The bag I am currently working on is black and white with red piping, very striking.
