Here's the bag I made and decorated with embroidery.

There's the X-treme closeup! I am going to keep the stitching but redo the applique because the stitching looks terrible--I'll probably use iron-on interfacing so it looks cleaner.

This is the first Sublime Stitching pattern I've ever used. I loved it! I am using more of them to embroider stuff for the holidays, and I've wisted the new book. I can't wait!

Your flower looks really nice -- you did a good job.  And it's *so* perfect for that bag!

The flower is gorgeous, and where ever did you find that amazing fabric? 
I actually like your applique -- I like the contrasting thread, but if you want your sewing to be less obvious, you can either use a thread that matches your fabric or one that is darker, and you can sew it on with a whip stitch instead of a running stitch.  Or you can use the iron-on stuff, but I personally never seem to have any when I need it so I wind up doing stuff the old-fashioned way.  Tongue

What a great idea, nice job!

Thank you for your compliments everyone.

princeskati: The fabric is by Alexander Henry, but it's an old design so I bought it on ebay. Sometimes you can find AH's fabric at JoAnn's and such, but for the older designs ebay is pretty much the only way to go. I paid something like $10/yard for it, which is worth it if you only need one yard!

And I will redo the applique soon--I'm embarrassed by how badly it turned out, but I was eager to get it on there and didn't have the right supplies. I'll post new pictures when I'm done, with some proper interfacing and a blanket stitch it should look much more profesh.
