Discover the best methods for selecting, stabilizing and hooping pre-made bags that showcase your machine embroidery perfectly! Learn how to embroider tote bags with guidance from author and fabric designer Amanda Murphy, and conquer the challenges of tight corners, tough fabrics and small spaces. Then, expand your design area by sewing your own custom tote. Amanda will show you how to double hoop for a supersized design, add contrasting fabric, sew side seams and create fuss-free corners. Make a chic "on the go" zippered pouch, and master tricky thread tension and stabilizing strategies along the way. Plus, get all 9 embroidery files featured in the class for free!
