It seems like I'll never finish making these bow tuck purses. Everyone just loves them. Here is # 31, 32 & 33. They all come out so pretty but I'm looking forward to doing the three more promised and trying a new pattern for a while.

I'm surprised how many people love these 2 pick UF Gator purses. I am just not fond of that pink.

These 2 purses were a stretch for me as I am just not a Gator fan. Neither am I a fan of blue and orange together or pink. But you know those die hard fans - they love their Gators. The blue was a Christmas gift for my daughters boss and the pink was made out of a Gator fabric that came out for a limited time. It wasn't easy to find but had someone requested a pink Gator purse. I wasn't sure they'd like it finished and was shocked how many people want one. But oh well, the fabric is long gone.


This purse is an excellent example of how pretty a simple black and white purse can be. I have about 4 more bow tucks promised so I'll post to show you the array of colors. After those are done I have a few other styles I want to try.

More to Come

I will be posting 7 more promised bow-tucks as they are finished. I will be adding a few otehr designs after the holidays. I had no idea everytone would like these purses so well. Watch for new colors next week and new designs next year.


Luckily my purse making is a lot better than my picture making. Here are 2 more color combinations of bow-tucks I finished last night. I wish green, red and gold showed up nicer. It's really a beautiful color. The other is an oriental print and the peacocks are really pretty.

More Color Combinations


I'm just updating my blog with pictures of my latest bow-tuck purses. I will be starting some new designs in about a week. Here are some color combinations I just finished.

Here's just a simple tote bag I was playing around with. I'd like to add some pockets and spice it up a little before it's ready for sale but the overall idea came out pretty.


Here's a special order purse I did this weekend. Came out fabulous and the colors are so rich. The interior pockets are done in the same print as the outter bag fabric.

I think I have about 4 more to get everyone caught up.


These 2 bow-tucks are going out for sale this week. Thought I'd try a Gator purse since so many women follow football and the paisley one would make an amazing holiday bag.


Again in these photos you can see how differnt this purse looks just by changing the colors. The blue one is very soft and feminine looking yet the black one is very dramatic and attention grabbing.

Yellow & Purple Bow Tucks

The yellow and blue bow-tuck came out very pretty and summery looking. The parrot purse is not for the faint of heart. You have to love bright colors. That one I made for myself.

These are the original ones and I'm still modifying the pattern here and there to get an improved end result. I wish I could get good pictures of all the interior pockets on this purse design.


Here are the original 2 bow-tuck purses I made. These will give you an idea of the size beteeen the regular (shoe fabric) and small sized (blue) purses. Each purse can be made with a button closure or just left open. Both are just as attractive.
