Monogram a College Duffle Bag

I recently embroidered this duffle bag and hat for my niece who is attending college this year. I hope she can use it to come home and visit. At first I had no idea how I would fit this large bag under my machine but I found a way and I wanted to share this will you!
First, you can find this type of duffle here at Sew for Less for only $12.99!! They have fifteen different colors and they are made from recycled materials. In order to get the bag under my machine, I flipped it inside out and placed the bag over the embroidery machine like the picture above. Centering the design was a little tricky and since the bag was turned to the side, I had to also turn the design. It worked out beautifully. 
Embrilliance Essentials is the program I am using on my Mac computer to merge and set my designs up for my embroidery machine. I love Embrilliance!! It is only $149 which is very cheap for a program that will allow you to do so much. I highly recommend it. If you click on the picture below it will take you directly to their site.
Enjoy every day!
