Longchamp Monogram Bag

I love my embroidery machine, it is a Brother PE 770 and it is perfect for all of my projects. In the picture below, I am monogramming a Longchamp style bag. With the new Essentials software, it is simple to save my personal monogram as a embroidery file with basting stitch. Once the embroidery machine is loaded with the correct stitch file from Embrillance, Essentials, I line everything up and set it to work. 
This bag is made from nylon and it's texture is silky smooth. This is not a real Longchamp bag, I just can't swing a $150-$200 bag on a teacher budget but it is very nice. For instance, we were caught in the rain at church, I mean torrential downpour, and this bag is waterproof. I wiped the water right off and it was like the rain never happened. I looked like a drowned rat but my bag looked great!
 As you can see my machine stitched this up for me in a matter of minutes. I used a polyester thread that had the same silky shine to it. These bags come in all sorts of colors and since my handmade wardrobe can be a little colorful this is a great accessory!!
I like being organized and this bag has no exerior pockets and only one zipper pocket after I monogrammed the outside. That is not enough for a multi-tasker, so I turned to my purse organizer. However because this bag is so large my purse organizer just rolled around in the bottom of the bag. So I made this organizer especially for this bag...
As you can see in the above picture there are eight gathered pockets around the edges of the bag. I love this because the center of the bag can still be used for all of my larger items; cosmetic bag, iPad, book, wallet, etc.. If you would like this total package especially customized for you visit me at Sew Spoiled Etsy and place an order.
