Welcome to the Quilting Board!
How about machine embroidery? Or since this one is already made, how about an applique?

How about a stencil? Buy one or make your own using the freezer paper method.(draw on the freezer paper and cut out your item -for example, an apple - cut out the apple leaving the outside intact.) The paints are acrylic, and about $1.00 per color, a couple of facial sponges. Iron the apple shape on your bag and fill it in using the red acrylic paint on the facial sponge. Then draw a stem and cut out the center - iron it on top of the apple and sponge it brown.
Cut out one or two leaves, iron them where they belong on the apple and sponge on green paint. etc. It's very easy and lots of fun. Use very little paint as you don't want "solid" color. After you put a little paint on your sponge, kinda dry it off on paper towels. Also, use your hair dryer to dry each color before using the next color. If this sounds good to you, please try it on a scrap piece of muslin first so that if you make any goofs you won't ruin your green bag! Just an idea.......
I made three green bags for Christmas gifts this year. I used the log cabin quilt block for my center. I just embrodered vines & flowers on them. I am sure you could do the same. Good Luck!! :D
Thanks for sharing with us,
yeah that would be a way to sample some blocks.....just make yp a block or two and add to the bag...ohhhhhh that would be pretty ....great idea SulaBug!
I like pals idea...could have fun...you could make a fabric photo of them....using the printer... :D
