I was asked to embroidery the initials on a tote bag 111/2" wide by 13 1/2" tall. How big should the initials be?

If your software will let you print out a true-to-size paper sample, try printing out the 3 3.5" initials and also 3 3" initials. Place the samples on the bag. Is there room for your hoop? Are they big enough? If you can't print on paper, do a quick stitch out of the size you think is right on cutaway, trim it down and place on the bag, with the hoop around it.

Hmmmm...lots of could depend upon where you want the initials to be on the tote bag...

I usually do them 4" to 6" high. Also depends on how fancy the initials are.
