Just finished the embroidery on 6 drawn string bags that I got at an estate sale for $2. each. I bought the two sided mirrors for $5. each today at Tuesday Morning. Just perfect for a simple Bridesmaid gift for my granddaughters wedding in 11 days. The alpha is from Embroidery Library Crulz for most of the initials ... the hyphenated one is Lisa on the Bernina machine.

A very nice gift for the girls! Those mirrors are really cute.

How did you embroider those bags? Did you take a seam out?

Lovely! Also wondering how you did those? Open arm type machine or open seam?

Thank you Mizzlilly.

I was planning to open the side seam to monogram but then thought to do it like a onesie. Kind of like turning it inside out , washable, tearaway sticky stablizer and used my smallest hoop on my Bernina. Of course starched it real good. Worked like a charm!
