    Thank you for the picture tutorial. I've had the pattern and materials since July & just started cutting this past week. Got stuck on the pocket--would you believe? Your pictures make it much simpler. I also have the fusible pellon. Do you quilt that?

    I quilt it if the fabric wants me too. :). I'm one of those silly people who hear it talk to me. My daughter uses hers all the time and no troubles. We handwash in cool water to be safe. If I use basting spray n batting I'd quilt it.

    I have a question about the interior pockets, after you mark the 8 1/2" line and match up the raw edges and sew your 1/4" seam, then fold the fabric over, you're supposed to get around 2 1/2" above the pockets. For some reason I'm getting 3 1/2". What am I doing wrong? This is on the small bow tucks bag. Help! Anyone have this problem? What did you do?

    Are you using the mini bow tuck pattern? The measurement down from the top is different than 8 1/2 on the regular bow tuck pattern.

    Yes, this is the mini bowtucks pattern. How much space do you have above your interior pockets?

    I don't know about the mini. I am sure someone else will bed around to answer. But You may try measuring from the bottom instead of the top. Just place the top of you pocket where you would like to have it end and use that as a sort of template for a general idea.

    This is a great idea. I will try this before the fabric trial. I am sure this tute will help; the instructions on the pattern are not that clearly written, and this tute helps.
    I think I will be doing this also. I do have one question though. I have seen many of these quilted. At what step should you be quilting your fabrics together so that is isn't too difficult when putting together? I hope I am making sense to you. Thanks for the tute, it was very visual and thats the kind of stuff I need

    The pattern tells you when to quilt if you want it quilted. It's pretty easy. I don't always. Kind of like the candy bar... sometimes you feel like a "quilt" and sometimes you don't.

    Thanks knlsmith. I have the pattern just haven't had time to look at it. I will definitely pay attention to when I can do it.
