Sunflower Bow Tucks Purse
This past week I had a fun project to work on.
My dear friend, Mary, asked me to make a purse for her sweet daughter-in-law. And Mary requested that I use sunflower fabrics as the main featured fabric.
I love making things for Mary, because she often says, "You make it like you would make it for yourself. I trust you." ( Mary is herself extremely gifted as a florist. You should see her beautiful weddings!)
So I looked around and bought my fabrics that featured sunflowers.

|The Bow Tucks Tote Pattern|
This is the pattern of the very first purse that I ever sewed!
|Inside- I have pockets on both sides. Lots of pockets with this pattern!|
|This side has a zippered pocket, too.|
|I embroidered a K on the outer front pocket|
|This tote bag/purse will hold a lot of things!|
(My sister, Amy ,of AmyMadeThat!, and I affectionately call them, "Bow Tox" purses ! I guess that's a joke only a sewer would appreciate! lol )
Functional AND fun !
I can't wait to see if she enjoys using her new sunflower tote bag!
