    Hello, I have had several members ask me for help with their bow tuck totes, so when i made one for my daughter this weekend, I took pictures of the steps.

    This is my first official tutorial, so please be patient, there are a lot of pictures.

    I am only posting pictures of each step. I do not want to infringe on anything for the creator of the pattern. But I really want to help those who have it. This is for those who have a legally obtained Bow Tuck Tote Pattern from Quilt Illustrated, August 2008. All your cutting should be done and ready. This is just for assembly.

    FOR copyright sake, NO measurements will/ should be given anywhere in the post. Each pictured is labeled by STEP, so if you have purchased the pattern, you will be just fine.

    Hope this helps those who are needing it. And thanks for looking.

    LOL! I didn't even notice. I use our deep freeze for cutting table. Had it up there so it wouldn't be sitting on bright white. Too funny!

    Thank you for posting this. I have the mini bow tuck pattern and the fabric, but haven't started it yet. I will save these instructions as I am a visual learner and need to see rather than read stuff. Thanks! Sara

    Good for you I'm sure those who are still wanting to try this will be very happy to see the pics. The directions are very easy to follow, after you have made one.

    One thing I've been doing with my Totes, is : I sew the front pocket into the seam of the front top and bottom piece. (sewing all three pieces together at once) It makes it a nicer finish. Don't know if I am making this clear...

    Thank you for the pictorial tutorial.

    I'm still stuck on the pocket. I've completed through Step 1D. I've read through the instructions but can't find when to attach the pocket to the bag. I thought it was attached in the seam when you sew the outer top to the outer bottom but the instructions don't say anything about that. In your photos it looks like you have it in Step 7D. I'm totally confused.

    Yup, the pattern has it at step 7. I am not sure why, but that's where they have it. I always put it on after I get the outer portions sewn and the fleece on them.

    I think it is important to remember that patterns are like a recipe to make chilli. They all have the same basics, but you can put the ingredients in different order and still get chilli.

    :)

    So it's just top stitched on? Is that secure enough?

    Almost, read Step 5 on your pattern. You just use your bottom color of the bag for the line instead of drawing one. And follow the measurement directions in step 7.

    I keep hearing about the 'BOW TUCK BAG". What makes it different from other bag patterns? Is it easier to make? I don't see any offered from pattern co.'s. They are lovely and I would love to make one. Someone please bring me up to date on the BOW TUCK..
