I'm a real embroidery newbie.. So much so that I'm waiting for my embroidery machine to be delivered and in the meantime just dreaming & planning what I'll do with it!

My son & daughters birthday party is coming up, and I was thinking about getting a tote as a favor and embroider the friends' names.
I found this on Target.com
Lunch tote
Can you embroider this?
Is there anything I need to watch out for?

It's a bad link, Babe. Seems you used a link that is associated with your Target account.

Without seeing it, think of how thick the fabric is to hoop up.... And also if it is shaped in a way that you'll be able to make a *nest* out of it when the hoop is on so that all of the rest of the bag is out of the way when being stitched.

Is this the tote on Target that you're thinking of?

The link is bad, but I'd like to add you can embroider just about anything as long as it fits into the hoop. I've done fleece blankets, towels, quilts, and monogrammed aftermarket handbags. The thing you need to watch out for is what stabilizer to use.

It might be easier to to the embroidery on a different piece of fabric and then sew that onto the tote. Seems to me that working flat is just easier than wrangling tough angles. it seems like one of those things that seems easy peasy on paper but the reality makes you want to rip your hair out.
