    you don't need a bowtuck with a bag like that! But if you insist, PM me for my address. I'll be happy to take it off your hands and then you can make a bowtuck!

    I am so proud that it is finished I took me all day. I did modify the pattern alittle. I added 2 extra pockets on the inside and one on the outside. I also made the sides and bottoms twice as wide as the pattern called for. I wish I would have used a heavy duty interfacing because it does collapse. But other than that I am happy with it.
    Now I think I will buy a bowtuck pattern.
    If the bottom collapses or folds, take some heavy plastic placemats from the dollar store and cut out a bottom shape from it, and sew a double sided cover on it ( like slipping it into a little pillowcase and sewing the end shut) and putting it into the bottom as a new liner?
