    I think it came out great. I've had this pattern for awhile now. Kept putting it off thinking I have to have a zipper in it. Last night my daughter came up to me and asked me to make her a purse, so I showed her the bow tucks. Then I went looking because I remember seeing a different tutorial page. So happy to find this. Only hope my turns out this good.

    Thank you from me too - I have been making bow tucks like crazy too - friends and family and family friends are all requesting them - I have been wanting to try a zipper but didn't know how. I am a little confused - do you add an extra piece of fabric that attaches to the zipper and the inside pieces of the bag? I think thats what you did - because that would give you the covering over the open part of the bag with the zipper. I think I am just afraid of zippers - never sewn one ever. But I am going to try this...Woo hoo...

    It is made from the Bow Tucks pattern. I was just showing how to add a zipper. Not sure who makes it, I can't find my pattern just now.

    This is a great tute. I can imagine how difficult it is to post on dial up. I already sewed my liner and outside pieces, but have not sewn them together, is it too late for me to do this? I saved a tute about adding a separating zipper that can be added after the tote is completed. I didn't save it in youtube though so I can't share it, I think I saved it in files on my other PC.

    In the denim purse I'm sewing -- loosely adapted from a Bowtucks pattern -- I sewed very strong magnets into the top of the outside (lined) part of the purse. The two sides will snap together, hope they still do once I get the lining in there.

    I also have a metal tape measure I may use on another pocket to help it snap shut. I modified the pattern when I sewed actual pockets on the outside from jeans, and created several measured pockets on the inside to hold my "stuff", sort of like a kangaroo insert.

    I've had the pattern for almost two years and haven't tried it yet but I think now it's time! Great tut!
