    Making my first mini-bow tuck and everything going along quite well but am at the point of cutting fabric for the inside pockets. It says to cut one piece 11 x width of fabric. The width of the fabric is about 42". How is that going to fit around the inside of the purse.

    Am I totally reading this the wrong way ????

    JAK,i haven't made a mini,but i think you will have a little extra.But you will need a little fullness for the things you will be putting in those pockets.Eyeglass case,cell phone,tissues.Connie in CO

    Well that makes sense and I guess if there is some extra left at the edges I can just trim them when I get to that point. Thanks for the response. All I can say is thank goodness for this site :D

    It will be folded in half and then cut in half. Hope this helps.
