Quick Monogrammed Totes
If you are short on time, you can buy a nice tote bag at the store and either add a monogram, symbol or simple saying using a heat and bond method or embroidery it yourself. The bags below are stitched with an embroidery machine. The font is Adorn from Stitchtopia without the extra design pieces. I measured evenly between the two straps for placement using a 120 x 120 hoop and two layers of Pellon 806 tearaway stabilizer. Since these bags will not be washed much, rayon embroidery thread worked perfectly. In order to be ready in a pinch, keep a couple of blank tote bags around for a quick personalized gift!
