are almost like a Lands End material. The only thing (because I'm not an expert) is that because the seams are covered, it would too much work to take them apart in order to embroider a design a little easier, so I'm hoping I won't have too much of a hard time with the embroidery or else I'll be making a lot of 'patch' embroideries - LOL

I received my today also. I ordered 10. I haven't had a chance to really look at the. I've been pretty busy today. But from a glance, they look well constructed. Can't wait to get started on them also. Whew! When am I going to do all this "stuff" I have on my list? I just finished a backpack for a friend's little boy name Pearson. I'm on my way to d/l it in projects...

There are only Rose colored ones left - all the cuties must have bought them out. I am glad to know - that they are made nice - but if you can't get to it - then you might have to use greysewist's (Marianne) idea, which would be very nice - you could also stich a pocket on the inside at the same time, perhaps

Maybe an easier way would be to embroider on a separate piece of fabric, either contrasting or matching, and make a pocket for your bag. That way you could also double the fabric so the back of the embroidery doesn't show. Pockets are often handy things to have :) You could also turn the separate piece of fabric (embroidered) into a tab with Velcro etc and wrap it around the bag when not in use, to keep it tidy for in your handbag until needed.

Great idea - I like your thinking.

I have used several sew-outs of my freebies and built-in motifs on my machine and made pocket for totes. I just added and extra matching fabric on the back and then added a binding all around like I would be adding a binding on a quit and then just straight stitched it on the 3 sides. Makes great cover ups for those bags with names of products, banks, etc. They are cute as well as practical.
