    I had to google to find out what a Bow Tucks was. :) Thanks for the tutorial!

    Looks like a great all-purpose bag. :)

    I'm making this purse for the first time, and am ready to start step 12. The directions aren't clear (or I overlooked/misread it) -- what is the dimension of this square?

    I'm a visual person, so was unhappy when I opened the pattern I purchased, as there are no pictures to go along with it, so I really appreciate you taking the time to post pictures for us!

    Thanks for the pictures! I have been reading about the Bow Tuck purses for the last week and was planning on buying the pattern. Then I sorted through a book shelf that holds purse patterns and guess what? I already had it! Bought last May. I plan on making one after Christmas.

    May I suggest you take a look at your cutting list. All measurements are there. I don't want post any measurements (this is stated in the beginning of the tutorial).

    Thanks for asking though.

    You can google it and order online from several places. A lot of local quilt shops also have it. Should cost around $6 to $10 depending on where you get it. I can't remember how much I paid for mine.

    Also, there is a smaller pattern called Mini Bow Tuck tote. I just have the bigger (regular) one and modify the measurements when i want a different size.

    I bought the pattern from a LQS and I really did not mind the money I paid for it until I started making it. Cutting it out was a breeze, but I like many are still stuck with the first step (pocket) when sewing it. I think for the money it costs, it could have included better instructions. I have been sewing for 45 yrs and never had this much trouble understanding the instructions for something I made. Very poor instructions... in my opinion.[/quote]

    I know your post was quite a while ago but I had to comment. I am a new quilter - less than a year. I am just about finished with my first Bow Tuck and the whole time I've been working on it I've thought how nervous I am going to be buying patterns in the future. I think this was the WORST when it comes to pattern writing. Like so many others my pattern has been sitting for quite a while because it sounded so hard to do.
    I could not understand why I've heard so many people making so many of them. Well, now that I've made one and see that it is quite simple - if you can decifer the pattern - I can understand that.

    I am SO very glad you posted that this was truly an exceptional hard pattern to understand.

    I took a class a few weeks ago for this bag. Since then I have maade another and aonther cut out ready to make. I am glad I took the class since the gal who taught it made it pretty simple to put together. I agree the instructions should have more pictures but I have noticed all of her patterns are this way. Once you make one you can understand all her patterns.

    I agree about the instructions, too. That was the big reason I did this. I am so glad it has helped sooooo many! :)

    Having published patterns, the price reflects the hours of work in coming up with and perfecting the pattern, the cost of production, the cost of printing. It is really a labor intensive project, I hope that helps answer your question.

    knlsmith, this is the coolest pictorial I have ever seen, and very thorough. THANK YOU!!! This is the kind of direction I can follow:-) Can you show it next to your hand. I can not see how big or small it actually is.

    I modified the pattern to a size I like. It is more the size of the mini bow tuck. I don't have a pic handy, but I can put a gallon of milk in it to give you an idea of size. Hope this helps. And thanks so much for the kind words.

    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 don't have any Pellon, I've made 4 or 5 of these just using Warm&Natural that I have on hand (I buy it by the Queen size roll). No problems so far!
