Embroidered Monogram Tote Bag with French Knots
Personalize an ordinary cotton bag with a hand-stitched monogram.
This idea comes from our contributor Anne Weil. The clean design and elegant typography modernize a monogram. You only need to know two techniques: French knots and the satin stitch. Plus, you can do as Weil suggests: "Keep a few extra bags on hand to have a lovely, personalized gift you can make in a jiffy for any occasion."
