    I just got my pattern and will try to get fabric this week. I was really intimidated by these directions, but your tutorial is helping already. Thanks for taking so much time to help those that need visuals. Thanks a million!

    Thanks for posting this! I'm trying to make a tote and keep getting stuck. I've never made anything like this (or from a pattern before) I could use a few more pictures or maybe a video tutorial lol. I wonder if there is a video out there. . .
    Thanks for all the help! I would've never even tried making one if it wasn't for this tutorial!

    I am not going to wait until our LQS does another class who knows when that will be.
    I am going to try it on my own, it cant be anything worse than the one I just did from a paper pattern that left out alot of the details. With this tute I think I can do it.

    I am going to be trying a mini bow tuck today as a gift for my niece but I have a couple questions. 1. On average, how long did it take to complete the bag, large or mini. 2. I should know the answer to this...but when it says width of fabric, is that selvage to selvage? I'm trying to use my stash and I have a few yards of fabric to use...and so I always forget what the actual measurements are of a yard...so that's question #3...what is the actual measurement of a yard...silly questions, I know...but I won't know unless I ask, right??

    No problem.

    WOF (width of fabric) is from salvedge to salvadge (seen it spelled both ways). the WOF will end up being the length of your straps and inside pockets. A good thing to do is measure your favorite purse you use now and than add a half inch or better to get a strap length you will like.

    A yard is 36 inches.

    The first one i did took me a couple days (working off and on). I did a fake one with newspaper and scotch tape first. didn't use all the details, just the basic parts. Once you do the first one, very easy to get one done in less than a day.

    Thank you! I do have another question...one step 3, the outer portion and lining pieces, I'm supposed to put the fleece on all 4 pieces, then quilt...am I quilting the individual pieces after I've fused them?

    I stopped at Joann's in Springfield the other day to get a pattern for a bow tuck and no one had ever heard of it. I guess I will just have to order one!
