    I ordered the mini pattern today. I'm sure this tute will clear up any confusion I may have. Sounds like everybody has trouble with their first one but from there, they seem to be easy. I'll see.............

    I got my pattern through Amazon where the price was $10 & free shpg.
    I had seen them on another site before Amazon & the price was $9 plus $4.99 shpg. I don't get that price for just a paper pattern.

    Yes, me too! What, where and when? I would like to make one and get the pattern from somewhere? Thanks for the tutorial, I'm going to save it.

    Thanks for the tutorial-I have had this pattern since April and have not been able to figure it out yet. Must be the start of dementia. Your tute will be a visual help. Thanks again.

    Marie, I looked all around Henriettas site but didn't find a free pattern for Bow Tucks. This is the same person I got my pattern from. Am I missing something? Can you maybe guide me to a free one? I found a link to it that has free bags others might like. Thanks for this info.

    Thank you for posting this tutorial. I've wanted to make a Bow Tuck, but have been put off by the not-too-clear instructions, so have been hesitant to start one. This helps a lot!

    The Bow Tuck is not a free pattern, at least I never found one. But it is available all over on the internet and at a lot of LQS.

    Thanks for letting me know. I haven't been able to find a free one either. I guess I misunderstood. I have one on its way now so I'll finally have the pattern.

    Sorry about that, I thought I had seen one in passing. There are so many free patterns and tutorials out there maybe you'll be lucky. If I see one on a site I will let you know.

    I have bookmarked your Tut on t he Bow Tuck Tote as I appreciate the visual aids.

    It looks like you are using the PFF (Pellon 987F Fusible Fleece). Would your recommend using regular batting as a substitute? Or could that make it too bulky?

    I see no problem with it. I know others have used regular batting and basting spray. I haven't tried it. I have used NON fusible fleece and just ran basting stitch around the edge of it to the fabric.

    I ordered my Bow Tucks pattern from Henrietta's Handbags. They used to have free shipping on patterns, but now charge $1.39 for shipping, which is not bad, when you consider what some charge. The pattern was $9.00.....I like Henrietta's because they are very nice to deal with and I get fast delivery. I looked at other Bow Tucks pattern prices, but some had shipping charges that were too high and I have become a little reluctant to order from E-bay because of a less than positive experience.

    I have made several bow tucks bags along with a few other quilted bags and have used both regular batting and pellon fusible fleece. Regular batting works fine but I find that it makes a more flimsy bag instead of a bulky one.

    The fusible fleece makes a wonderful bag. Since I started using the fusible fleece, I will never go back to regular batting for bags. The fleece makes such a nice smooth and stiffer bag over all. And for me it is easier to quilt the bag using the fleece. Also, my handles are always nice and perky and they don't need any extra stuff inside to make them stand up on their own. No more flimsy handles. I love how my bags turn out with using the fusible fleece.

    Here are some links of the bow tucks bags I have made:

    I definitely like to fusible better too. Everything u said about it being more perky is right on the money.

    thank you so much for the visuals. I have made a Bow Tuck Bag, but somehow messed up on the side ties. Ater looking at your picture, I know exactly what I did wrong. I am also a visual learner. I bought a kit at the LQS and was afraid to cut the material, as I didn't want to mess up such beautiful fabric, so I used the pattern and old fabric in my stash as a "demo." DD loved it so I gave it to her for a diaper bag. Can't wait to make more.

    Dumb question: Did you wash your fabric before making the purse?

    Nope. I don't wash fabric first 95% of the time on anything. Also, when i made some samples of a different bag for a designer, she asked that the fabric not be washed first.

    There are lots of topics on the subject if you try the search at the top of any page.

    Okay by me, less time taken away from sewing :)
