    My first and it won't be my last! It was so much fun I'm ready to make my second one! I thought I needed something to carry my purchases in at the expo I attended in March. It worked out real well and all the pockets were wonderful!

    At first I was going to quilt the fabric but I realized I was under a time crunch and I didn't think I could finish in time. Instead, I added a few more buttons. For the closure I stacked two buttons together and added a few across the front pocket and beads to the side ties. I also put a magnetic snap on the inside (I'm so glad I did) which was a nice addition.
    I have to say - I'm hooked . . .

    Inside view-love all the pockets!

    After I got started it only took about four hours. But it was a fun four hours. I think it took longer deciding what to finish the front with!! The wonderful ladies at my LQS were trying all different buttons on the front for me! It was fun.

    I purchased it at my LQS and it's by Quilts illustrated. Designed by Penny Sturges. #ps008 Bow Tucks tote. There's two patterns and this is the larger one. Several stores carry the pattern online as well.

    Lovely bags. DGD and I tried to make a bag this week. Did not come out bad but not as good as I would have liked. We used red (already quilted) for main color and she chose black background, red roses and white skulls for handle, lining and outside pocket. We will try another to see if we can make some that look as nice as yours do. GOOD JOB!!

    So pretty. Love your fabrics. I've lost count how many that I've made. I think I've got 10 or 11 sitting on my guest bed right now...ha. I'm making a bunch for a craft show that will be in Nov. I just love making them.

    Thank you! Good eyes Susan I've taken a break from it. I'm putting on a new belt and will be able to use it soon. I just moved it to that wall since I'm changing sewing spaces. I really like my treadle - It's a beautiful machine.
