Bag 2 completed

Hello to all!
Thought i would update the bags im working on.
Ive finished cutting all the outside fabric, good news, i dont have to buy more and i have some extra left over!
Going today to buy the last remaining item needed to complete the bags. Working on name #3.
Here is the second one at 98% completion:

I can say 2 things about this project: 1) im learning a lot about how to embroider the letters, and patience that is needed to do so.
2) im getting way more exercise than normal, due that i am constantly standing to cut fabric and some sewing as well.
So far, im doing way better than i expected! I hope to get them all completed in the next 2 weeks. Just in time for Christmas!!!
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to comment!!
