    Now isn't that the neatest way to recycle those old clothes. This was so smart of you to think of making your bow tuck purse from a skirt. I love it!

    thanks everyone for your nice comments again... as you can see i love making the bow tuck but they have to be different.. i go to bed dreaming of new ways to keep the integrity of penny's bag with using different fabrics.
    my dh loves this one alot so of course he is not letting me sell it.. however.............he brought me several pairs of jeans that are toooo big for him now.. he said for me to get busy and do a few more to sell !!!
    i find this funny because he now knows how to make these...
    GET ON IT HONEY !!!! lol
