Accentuate the Positive: Jazzing Up Your ITH Bags

See how easy it is to get a professional finish for in-the-hoop bags.

Bags embroidered in the hoop now rival designer pieces. Part of the reason is how they are embellished.

Edge Trim

Inspiration Mutz incorporates lace trim into the assembly of their lovely Lace and Roses Purse. Lace adds an elegant touch to both the embroidery and the fabric.

An edge of pearls outlines the lacy Celtic Invasion Clutch Purses from Stitch Delight.

Also from Stitch Delight, ITH Zip Bags 2 combine gorgeous quilting with coordinating lace and eyelet trims.

Hardware

Bag closures have expanded beyond zippers. Inspiration Mutz uses clasp closures in Bohemian Clasp Purse

and Arch Clasp Purse. Both are reminiscent of early Victorian days.

Framed Wallet from Kreations by Kara exudes a boutique feel. The metal adds an elegant finish with a real wow factor.

Zipper Pulls

A coordinating zipper pull polishes off the Bee Safe bag from Louisa Meyer Originals. Made in just one hooping, the addition of a hardware clip to this bag takes it from posh to pro status.

All of these embroidery designs are part of the Pop-up Sore 70% off sale this week.
