I'm not sure how I spent all my time before getting an embroidery  
machine!  ;-D

Well, yes before arthritis started making my fingers stiff I did a  
lot of hand embroidery and crewel...  and knitting.

Grocery shopping bags are getting to be a very big item around here.  
Disposables haven't been outlawed yet, but are frowned on, and more  
people are showing up with reusable bags.  I made mine from canvas  
scraps about 25 years ago, and when washed, they're good as new, and  
many people have asked about buying some.  Mine have no embroidery, no  
embellishment, just stripes that the fabric came with.  But I think you  
could make some dynamite designer shopping bags, Beverly.

Thanks, Claire.  Super easy, and fun to do. You might think about  
doing some for your shop.

Or embellished diaper bags...  :-)

Here, plastic bags have been banned, paper is next....  We are so  
green we croak.

I don't make the actual bags, I bought several of the organic cotton  
totes at shoppersrule.com (way cheaper than I could do them for) and  
I've been going through the stash making bags for family members. I  
have to open up one side seam to hoop them (actually in this latest  
two, *all* the side seams), but that is really easy to close back  
up.

I forgot to put pictures of younger DD's tote with a fantasy  
dragonfly design  
http://www.urbanthreads.com/products.aspx?productid=UT2307 in her  
colors.  She uses it every day taking stuff back and forth to work.  
I'll see if I saved a picture of it and add it later.

I can't imagine trying to embroider on fleece!

It took me a few tries to get the right combination of stabilizers.  
I use light weight tear-away under and Sulky Solvy on top.  It holds  
the fleece down while stitching and tears off cleanly.  I also try  
to color-match the bobbin thread, since the back will be seen.

Love what  you do/ I always look and have a  touch of envy for your  
ability to turnout such beautiful pieces.

Thanks Juno, but I cannot take all the credit:  it's a collaboration  
between me, my machine, my digitizing software, and occasionally the  
fine folks at  
emblibrary.com/urbanthreads.com/embroidery.com/bfc-creations.com/etc.  
;-D

It's still you. If I had all the same pieces I doubt I'd have the same  
success.

Me too, Juno!  It takes more patience than I seem to have!

You would, with enough practice.  I have not put pictures of my very  
early machine- embroidery work online.  There is a reason for that.
