Yet again the time is speeding by and we are already almost through Easter and mid-way through April.

It’s been a busy month here at Appleton Print HQ.

This month we have mostly been practising our embroidery and digitising skills making embroidered patches, badges, t-shirts, baby memory bears and tote bags.

The tote bags are gorgeous (so are the rest mind you). Made from 100% cotton they are fabulous little unique gifts, and wonderful re-usable shopping bags.

We have needle threading, thread changing, oiling, hooping and programming down to a fine art on our new to us SWF embroidery machine. If it stands still for long enough we will embroider it.

The designs on the tote bags mainly feature animals and there is a gardening range to be added to the available designs in the near future. These can be purchased in our shop and online in our Etsy store.

We don’t recommend washing these bags as the 100% cotton will shrink every time, so wash as infrequently as possible.

Any design is possible so if you have something in mind please send it through to us.

One design idea coming up is children’s drawings, so if you have a child’s drawing you would like making into a tote bag gift for yourself or a friend, we will be able to do that here for you. A smashing little keepsake, also useful and a wonderful way to show your child how much you value their creativity.

These tote bags are £10, including VAT. Why not have a look at the embroidered tote bags online now.
