Just received my pre-printed tote bag. LOVE IT!  Cheesy  It is canvas, and the lines are thicker than I'm used to.  Does anyone have a suggestion for needle size?  I was looking at either a crewel or yarn needle, but I'm afraid the holes will be too big.

Since I also have no imagination, I'm also open to suggestions for color pallettes.

Thank you!

Hi-

I am currently working on mine. I have been using all 6 threads of embroidery thread, some of the blue is still showing a bit, but I think the lines are supposed fade eventually with washing of the bag.

I have been using lots of bright colors for the flowers. I love it. Here is my progress so far. I am almost done.

I am using a Clover Embroidery needle, the biggest one in the pack, I think it is a number 3. It has a fairly large eye
