Now is a great time to try something you’ve never attempted before. For me, it’s finally giving in to using my embroidery machine for more than just designs… it’s time to try some bags!
This is Off With Their Thread’s Boxy Mama (5×7 in the hoop) and it’s stinking adorable! I could have easily sewn this with a standard machine, but it’s way more fun on the embroidery unit – my only complaint is that some threads are visible as these are the tackdown lines and I didn’t quite get them lined up exactly when I sewed them together.
I grabbed the mini backpack pattern as well, but I really wish I had a larger hoop on hand to do a bigger version, they seem like they would hold a lot more and might not be so fussy when it comes to piecing them together.
