When I buy bed linens, they often come in a nifty little drawstring pouch. Depending on the size you buy, they might be large enough to make a shoe bag, or just a nice size bag to organize small things in your dresser or suitcase.
(And you don’t have to wait until you buy linens; as you can see, these are constructed very simply on a serger. Or, use the overcast stitch or French seams on your sewing machine.)
Here’s how to turn those freebies into quick monogrammed bags:
Choose your embroidery thread,
Load some sticky wash way stabilizer in your hoop (or use a light cutaway and basting spray)
Lay the bag inside out on the hoop if you have a single needle combo machine
Or hoop the fabric right side out if you have a free arm machine
Press start on your machine and – two minutes later, a personalized bag!
