Updating a Canvas Bag Quickie!

on February 3, 2014

I had to come up with something quick for last minute Birthday gift.  I am usually on top of this stuff but with everything being so hectic in my life recently I’ve been falling behind on everything!  I love to personalize gifts.  To me they seem to have more love and thought behind them and, well, are more personal.  This particular person loves purple, butterflies, minions, and I happen to know is in college. .I had this canvas bag at my shop I purchased and wouldn’t you know it, it is purple!

I have this gorgeous pattern programed in my sewing/embroidery machine of a butterfly.

I added her name at the bottom and voila!

You can make virtually anything more sentimental and personal by adding quick little touches like this.

Any Canvas bag can be embroidered, even by hand!

You can find many embroidery websites that offer hand embroidery patterns.  My favorite is Urban Threads!  I am an Urban Threadster for sure!  I absolutely love their site and blog!

Thanks for stopping in and checking out the new post!

Till next time!
