EMBROIDERED JUTE TOTE BAG
I saw this jute bag from Muji and knew I wanted to embroider it! I’m using the A4 size (costs $3.90)
Draw out your design.
1
Trace your design onto water soluble stabilizer.
2
Pin your design to your bag. The bag has enough structure to not need an embroidery hoop.
3
Start your design in the middle and move out. Use a backstitch to trace all your lines.
4
Create backstitches by sewing a few mm forward then inserting your needle back into the last stitch.
I chose to do one color group at a time: First was all of the larger purple flowers.
Add variation with different shades. Double or triple lines to make thicker flower centers.
Next, embroider the smaller blue flowers.
Finally all of the green leaves.
Remove pins, and cut away excess stabilizer.
5
Use water and a toothbrush to dissolve and remove the stabilizer. Make sure to rinse fully and dry.
6
Use your bag to carry anything from groceries to your everyday essentials!
