    My First Bow Tuck Bags from Penny Sturgis Pattern

    These are my Bow Tuck Bags which I have found to be quite addictive and I find myself planning to make many more.

    Very nice! If I had your talent,I'd also make a purse.When it comes to sewing them,I just fumble around,then give up.

    After I had the fabric cut out and was preparing to sew I got stuck on step one which was making the front pocket. It took me an hour to try to figure it out. I am not very experienced when it comes to sewing handbags but hope to get better.

    My son is giving them to his female clients as thank you gifts when he processes their applications for mortgages and refenancing. He asks them their favorite colors, I make the bag and he mails the bag to them.

    Great job! You have a nice choice of fabrics that you used. I had so much making my first one and onto others! I have found a product called Soft and Stable that I like to use in other totes. On my next Bow Tuck tote I'm going to try it in there. It makes your totes/purses look so sharp. It gives it some body but keeps it soft and not stiff looking. Good job!

    Very pretty. I hope he realizes the value in your bags. I would guestimate they are in the 40$ area. Where do they sell Soft and Stable. Is it like fusible fleece? Decor Bond?
