Introducing MEL's Bag of the Month Club

for Machine Embroidery Lovers

Join MEL as she shares her story every month by unveiling a new bag design that you can complete from the comfort of your home. 

We invite you to grab a friend, choose some of your favorite materials, jump in with both feet, and embrace one of the things you love to do most: create.

Each month, on the 21st, a new bag design will be released, featuring gorgeous Machine Embroidery, maybe with some appliqué and/or quilting thrown in. 

In addition to getting a beautiful new pattern each month, you will also have the chance to connect with machine embroidery lovers just like you all over the world in our private community. 

That’s part of what makes this club oh so special - we will all be working on our bags together throughout the year! Sharing our own adventures with our bags, celebrating our wins, and enjoying the time spent together with our machines.

But these bags aren’t just any bags… they’re bags made with your very own two hands.

Something money can't buy.

Reminders that you can create something beautiful.

The bags you make during this year will give you a creative outlet, a way to keep your mind busy, and a space where you can connect with others all around the world who share your passion. Plus, they’re a great way to use that stash you’ve been promising yourself you would get to. Solids, unique prints, fun materials… they all have a place in MEL’s Bag of the Month Club!

I love it and can’t wait to make another one!  Thanks Sarah for another great project! 

~ Claire M ~

Once I had made one, one of my friend wanted it and then I thought about whom I could give it to, so here are my 3 bags! One is for me! I love this pattern and I am looking forward to future months!

~ Kathy Sodt ~

Thanks for the videos Sarah. I’m a visual learner. I do a lot of embroidery projects. I’m excited to see what the next bag will be. I plan on making this design again.

The March Bag... MEL's On the Run Shopping Bag

One day, as MEL was looking at her growing collection of reusable and paper shopping bags, she had an idea. MEL tries her best not to use plastic bags because of the environment, but the paper bags usually don't have handles. So she went with the reusable bags you can purchase but after several uses, the handles break down and they are not pretty at all to carry.

MEL likes style and durability. Why does a grocery bag have to be boring? This beautiful bag is fun to carry and will hold up - the handles are stitched down to the bottom of the bag. The handles are guaranteed to NEVER fall off.

MEL's On the Run Shopping Bag measures 12" x 16" x 7" and features the word SHOPPING on the front. A chic diamond design and a "secret" zipper pocket is on the back - that just happens to be the exact same size as a chocolate bar! MEL sneaks her favorite treat in that pocket so when others help her put away the groceries, that stays hidden. :-)

The bag is fully lined to keep it nice and easy to clean. Create several to use on your normal grocery run or use The Groovy Letters Collection to customize the bags for any purpose.

I did my first purse and I think I am addicted! Thank goodness for the video instructions! 

~ Carol Y~

How precise Sarah’s instructions were! Made the learning experience so much easier. I couldn’t have picked a better person to learn from and I was totally in the dark about who she was and how good she was. And including a FB group to the mix... truly the best!
