Applique patch and glue sound like a good plan [idea from Ajmmjs]. I have done quite a lot of applique patches recently. If you can get fabric the exact same colour as your background, they look more professional.
the bag is black and I had thought about applique.
if is a computer bag it should have a flap.if it does and no pocketsor zips this would b the most likely place.no hooping of bag.hoop stabilizer then add sticky spray to hold flap in place.if that is not possible then think about a patch to either sew or glue on wherever you desire.i have been embroidering only a little over a yr. others may know other ways.sincerely, lynne
No flap. It has this outside pocket where she wants his name. It doesn't open very wide. Super thick. I am thinking applique is going to be the best option too.
