    I was marking my bag to put a magnectic snap in and I had
    marked and cut my spot a little too close to the top. I wanted
    it to come down about a 1/2" more. Is there any way that I can fix the 2 small slits?

    reinforce under the slits with fuseable you can almost get an invisible mend but a butterfly appliquied on or similar covers a multitude of sins

    Actually this is my bow tucks bag. I wasn't sure how far down from the top to put it and then when I realized I had it a little higher than what I wanted it was to late. So the slit is on the lining of my bag.

    Fray Check the slits and place a applique over them? If you place another applique in a similar place on the other side, it will look like it was designed this way.

    This is the lining of my bow tucks and at the top. I only want to move it down about another 1/2" . So maybe the applique
    might be in the way.

    Make a "label" for your bag, like the "Made with Love" tags you can get. Glue it on with fusible web. It should only be about 1/2" wide or less. It'll look like it belongs.

    Patch that spot and put 2 snaps in one to the left and right, should be large enough make 2 closures useable.
    Good Luck
