Personalize your bag with a custom monogram!

Mark a placement line on your bag in the location you want the monogram to be placed. The placement line represents the top of the embroidery monogram. For this bag, I centered the design in between the straps about ?″ down from the top stitching. I first marked the line with chalk and then placed a piece of blue painters tape aligned with the marked line to make it easier to see when placed in the hoop. Also, make sure you mark the center line between the straps to ensure your monogram is centered.

Hoop a piece of the OESD StabilStick Tearaway stabilizer in the BERNINA Large Oval Hoop and remove the paper. This stabilizer is a sticky back tearaway that makes it easy to place the bag without having to hoop the bag itself.

Turn the bag inside out and place the bag into position in the hoop. Make sure the bulk of the bag is off to the right and that the bag is securely stuck to the sticky back stabilizer.

If you are using a bag with more textureunique wedding gifts couple, try using a piece of OESD StitcH20 washaway topping on the top of the bag so that the stitches are more prominent and do not sink into the fabric.

Place the hoop on the machine and use the clips if needed to clip the other side of the bag out of the way as the machine embroiders.

Use the embroidery editing features and Pinpoint Placement on the B 700 to place the monogram into position.? This feature easily allows you to ensure your monogram is straight regardless of how accurate you hooped the project.

Open the monogram design on the machine. Rotate the design to fit the direction the bag is hooped.

Select Pinpoint Placement and select the ‘Grid’ icon for placement. I placed my design using the center mark and the top of the tape as the top center position.

Select the top center marker and then using the top Multifunction Knob move the hoop so that the needle lines up with the mark on the tape.

Lower the needle with the handwheel to make sure the needle is aligned with the center marking and move if needed. Once it is aligned, select ‘Set’ to confirm the position.

Next, I selected the bottom right marker in Pinpoint Placement to make sure that my design is aligned with my tape. Using the Multifunction Knob, I will now move the design to match the top of my blue painter’s tape. To ensure perfect placement lower the needle with the handwheel to make sure the needle is properly aligned to the top of the tape. Select ‘Set’ once satisfied and close Pinpoint Placement.

You can see that the design has now been moved and rotated to match my placement line. Even though I hooped the project a bit crooked I can easily align my design to be placed perfectly.

You are now ready to stitch the monogram. Remove the blue painter’s tape before stitching and turn on the basting box.

By first stitching the basting box around the design, the bag will be less likely to shift during stitching. This is very helpful when embroidering projects that are placed on sticky stabilizer without being hooped.

Once the design is stitched, carefully remove any stabilizer and the basting stitches. Your bag is now complete!

This is my entry for the Instructables Back-To-School Contest! Please vote for me~! ^_^Thanks so much for all your support! I managed to place as a runner-up! :DWith the new school year approaching this month, and noticing that I often dig around in my bag for a pencil, I realized I needed a new pencil case.But the dilemma I have is that all the pretty pencil cases are very expensive, and all the dull ones break easily! So what am I to do?Well... how about make my own?This pencil case will cost you under $3 and a few hours. For me, it took five hours or so, but be reminded that I chose to hand sew my pencil case! A sewing machine will probably take off at least three of those hours.The only sewing skills you will need are how to thread a needle, how to do a oversewing stitch (also known as a blanket stitch), a running stitch, and a hem stitch, all relatively easy.A great instructable on how to sew:? pencil case I made is modeled after the Studio Ghibli character, Totoro. You don't have to make yours like I did, but with this pattern you can pretty much add any detailing you like. For example, I'm currently working on another Hello Kitty pencil case, and my first one was a Domo-kun pencil case. ^_^This is my first Instructable! :D
