    Move over Bowtucks - I have a new favorite totebag pattern

    The pattern comes from "The Quilt Magazine's" April 2010 issue. When I saw sewsewquilter's post here http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...e-t162675.html I knew I just had to make the bag..

    Move over "Bowtucks bag" because I think this Daytripper bag is going to be my new favorite totebag pattern. I love love love the scooped pocket....I was going to make a prototype bag to make sure I liked it but I decided to dig right into my precious batiks and made one up....

    Do you have a favorite totebag pattern?

    Thanks for sharing the photo of your bag...it's GREAT! Although I would be proud to carry any bowtucks bag, I think yours is more sophisticated and an updated style. For myself, I would not put the bows on my bowtuck. I guess I'm just not that girlie.

    Oh, I like that one. I don't use patterns anymore. I started with bow-tucks and just kept changing them to my liking. Adding more quilting, different handles and hardware. Now, my purses don't look like bow tucks at all anymore.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Nice pattern and I like the color you selected.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Your bag is very pretty, and you should be very proud of it. I would be, but I will always be a bow tucks girl.

    It is beautiful. personally I did not like Bow Tucks and could not figure out what all the hoopla was about., I love this bag, it has a real classy look to it
