    Just Threads and modified mini Bow Tuck

    In June, our guild held a class in which we created a fabric using various threads and all of the machine stitches you've never used before. Just Threads provided all kinds of threads to try out. It was a lot of fun. The requirement was a fat quarter, but I made mine much larger because I wanted to make a purse out of mine. Here is the fabric of a couple of friends and me:

    I prefer a shoulder strap as opposed to handles and I like lots of pockets. Here is the modified mini Bow Tuck purse I just finished with mine:

    haven't seen a bow tucks since I joined the board. I love all of your stitches. great job.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Gosh, Bow Tucks used to be so popular - first time I've seen them in a long time.

    Pretty fabrics you all made. Bow Tucks wow it's been awhile. Several years ago I made 12 of them for Christmas gifts with matching tissue holders. I love the looks of the bag.

    What a great idea. I love your 'fabric' and your bag. It's very fresh looking like lime sherbert or a nice cool summer drink.
