In issue 9 (December/Gifted) of ReadyMade, it had some instructions for really cool looking music-themed embroidered pillows.  Those could be scaled-down for bags, probably.
I doublechecked the website, sometimes they offer their instructions free, but this one wasn't on there.
Good luck!

strangey - annthegran's a fabby site but i think it's just for people who own computerised embroidery machines. i think beebidollz is looking for hand embroidery designs...

have you ever seen one of those machines in action? super-spiffy!! just wish i could afford one  Grin

Just know that you can only use the really great Sublime Stitching patterns if you credit them also when selling the bags (I think you'd have to note it on the tag and when selling). Not sure if you'd need permission to use them, but this is outlined on her site. Just so you know. Her designs are very copyrighted.

It's been along time since I've done this...but could you just make a photo copy & iron it on ...  
We used to copy pics from coloring books iron them on shirts & fill in with fabric paint ....
Can this be done?

try searching google for clip art on any subject you're interested in, like music or dogs or whatever. You should be able to find something you like that is simple enough to convert into a pattern.

I did it with some clip art from Tack-O-Rama three days ago. It makes great patterns. All you do it run it through a copier then iron the copied sheet picture side down on high.
