    I have only ever made one thing with a cut out pattern in my life and it was 25 years ago in home ec class.
    I have wanted to buy a bowtuck pattern but thought I would try with a pattern my mom had first.
    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.

    You did a beautiful job! I think the only reason your purse is collapsing is because you don't have enough "stuff" in it! ;) My purse bulges!! LOL

    Very pretty bag. I have never made one, a little afraid I guess. Some day I will give it a try.

    I like your original bag. I am new at using patterns, too. I want to try the bow tuck. They are so handy and pretty.

    Good job. :thumbup:
