Mesh beach bag done for a friend. The design is from Stitched Impressions. I hadn't embroidered on mesh before and I didn't want to have stabilizer on the back, so I used Vilene and washed it out... worked well. The design is behind a vinyl pocket.

I wanted to sew the design in white, but thought that it wouldn't show up well on the white stripe so used a light blue.... I think it's ok, but if I was doing it again, I think I would use a stronger contrast... maybe red or bright yellow for the whole design.

Edited to add: I didn't make this bag... bought it at Target.

Nice idea to do on a bought bag, personalizes it. Am still too afraid to embroider on anything other than fabric. :-( would love to do vinyl for key fobs ....

My first.... I think that if I do another, I will do it like baydreamer did with her bag posted eariler today. She embroidered on fabric, and added it to the bag with lining....covers us the knots etc on the back of the embroidery.
