Have you ever wished you had a gorgeous and useful block design that you can use again and again?
How fun would it be to take a design you truly love and make matchings bags, home décor, quilts, and more - playing with the fabric, thread, and color scheme with each project you stitch?
MEL's Daydreamer Boxy Bag Collection features machine embroidery and quilting in the hoop using 4 and 5 inch blocks which means you have unlimited project options wrapped up in this one collection!
Through detailed instructions and awesome video lessons, we show you how to make the small bag and the large bag, but you don't have to stop there. You can make any project (using blocks) that you'd like! And you can stitch up these designs again and again because the look can be so different just by making a new fabric and thread selection!
We hope you'll stitch this up with us and remember that it's never too late to dream a new dream or embrace a new adventure. You never know where your embroidery machine might lead you with this collection in your library!
MEL's Daydreamer Boxy Bag comes in 2 sizes.
- Using 4" blocks, the bag measures 12" x 8" x 4".
- Using 5" blocks, the bag measures 15" x 10" x 5"
... But you can truly make it any size you want just by changing how many blocks you use!
The inside of the bag features 2 zipper pockets and 2 open pockets. Both bags are deliciously roomy and the larger bag can hold a TON of stuff. A snap closure at the top prevents things from falling out, and a snap on each side allows you to close up the bag on those days when you haven't got a lot of stuff in the bag.
The uses for these bags are almost as endless as the projects you can make with these blocks! We love the idea of a matching set for mom/daughter or grandma/granddaughter - and these bags are the perfect size to nest together when not in use!
Have a special loved one in your life starting a new school year or career? Stitch up a bag to hold their laptop, books, and more. They'll be taking your love with them everywhere they go.
Or maybe you just want an awesome bag to toss a couple magazines in and a small project as you head out to the doctor's office, have time in the park, or just to keep things in one place around the house.
And Ruthie wants you to know that there's nothing to worry about except maybe the "accidental" neglecting of household chores because you're having too much fun in your sewing room!
But what if you've never made a bag or done any sewing of this type before? No problem! The included step-by-step videos and live Q&A calls mean you'll know just what to do and if you should get stuck - we have an entire support system ready to help you keep stitching. And the best part is you don't even have to make a bag to find this collection super useful. These 4" and 5" blocks allow you to make anything your heart desires!
MEL's Daydreamer Boxy Bag Collection is practically begging for you to put your unique touches and vision on it! Can you imagine that fabric you'll use, what thread would look best, and who will get the first bag?!
You’ll receive detailed and fully illustrated written instructions that can be viewed on your favorite device or printed out for convenience.

Your instructions are well laid out and explained. I couldn’t have found a better website and Facebook friends. You have given good advice and help along the way. Thank you to everyone. A big thank you to Sarah for all the work she puts into helping us all learn so much in such little time!
I'm a total newbie to machine embroidery, but with Sarah's guidance and instructions, I'm able to do this and enjoy the process. There are many experienced people in this group who are most generous and informative.
