    then anyone can! I made my first bow tuck :XD: and it turned out looking like a purse, I am so thrilled! Just to show you how much of a novice I am, it was my first time sewing on a button ! And I finally did it! It took longer than I thought it would, and I had a problem with sewing on the handles on the wrong side that when I tuned the purse right side out the handles were buried in it (silly me) so I unsewed and redid that, but other than that I thought it was pretty clear what to do. Of course there were steps that I had to read like 10 times to get it, but hopefully it is all a learning experience. My husband walked home from work and shrieked "Wow' when he saw my bow tuck sitting on the table :mrgreen: It feels good!

    So all of you still wondering if you could make a bow tuck, yes you can!

    Great job. I really like your fabric choices. I haven't made the bow tuck yet, but did a tote bag that I love. I think they are lots of fun to make.

    Good job. I read through the pattern/instructions last night. That alone intimidated me. I was hoping that it would be easier once I was actually doing it. Haven't had the courage to start yet.

    I read over the instructions once or twice before I started and I couldn't tell heads from tails and had no clue what I was supposed to do. I still went for it though, and made sure I am understanding every steps before proceeding. It worked! I say go for it :thumbup:

    Love your spirit and your bag and your fabric combinations. With an attitude like yours, lookout world, this new quilter is going to show us great things.

    Can't believe this is your first, know it will definitely not be your last.
