    Default I had to design a bag.....

    My daughter, whose flying privileges I used last Sunday on my emergency trip, is a diehard Seahawks fan. I tried to give her one of the mini bow tucks totes I had already sewn up and she did not want want and went on to tell me that it was 'too busy'. I told her I'd make her a purse and asked her what she wanted. Well, I had no pattern for what she wanted, so I had to figure it out. She was very specific about wanting a zipper across the top, so it has that. Of course I had to add a 12 made using my new toy!!!

    Now to come up with a name for it......

    And this I found amusing....she stopped by a little bit ago and saw one of the other bow tucks that is exactly like the one I tried to give her, except it has blue straps instead of lime green and she asked for that one!!! Sorry dear, it was a special order and already spoken for!!

    Great job! My dh would love it -- but he doesn't carry a purse. LOL He is a huge Seahawks fan.

    Sigh...just beautiful. You know, you need to have someone video you making a bag (or several) and sell the DVDs. Can I put in a pre-order now? Pretty please???

    After thought... guess you can't sell anything on the forum though, right? What a bummer!!!!!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I love these bags you have been making, mostly because they are really awesome and because a good friend of my daughters is on the team. (Lem Jeanpierre). While she always supports his team she is a die hard Steelers fan. I really need to make her the bowtucks one in Steelers,fabric. One of these days it will happen lol.

    Another great bag! Your daughter sounds like mine..........doesn't like something until it's all done for someone else! The Seahawks fans will love your bags. Now if I could just find some Chicago Bears fabric!

    She just came and got it. She had measured a purse strap she has and had me make it the same length.....I did. Well, I had also sent pictures of the front panel before I started sewing it and she had said it was too big, so I took 1.5" off each side. When she picked it up, she was putting nothing in it. I told her to toss her wallet inside. She said it won't fit.....uh, why not? You told me it had been too big and you wanted it smaller so I told you I cut it down. Oh, I thought it was too long, not too side. Well, that's what she got for thinking because she can't even put her wallet in it! Yes, I was a bit irritated......grrrrrr! I did fix the strap length, but there was nothing I could do about the other.
