    I just love all the bow tucks everyone has made. My first question is what is the difference in size between a bow tuck and a mini bow tuck, and second I really want to attempt one, are they really difficult to make. I don't want to get all the supplies and then give up. If the directions are pretty straight forward I can follow them, I am just wondering about the thickness I would be sewing. Any info would be appreciated. I hope to be making some soon with all your support.

    This is a very easy pattern. Im sure you will be successful and there are plenty of helpers that have already made them to help you along if you get stuck.

    As for the thickness, it is about the thickness of a quilt when sandwiched together. Mostly you will be sewing through a layer of interfacing and a layer of fabric.

    The thickest part is the handles and top stitching around the top, there will be a couple layers of fabric and interfacing at the point where the handle is attached. Otherwise, not very thick at all

    There is not much difference in size. If you decide to try it remember there are lots of us here that have made them and can help. Just ask.
