DIY Bridesmaids Tote Bags

DIY Tote

I came across a similar bag while browsing the web one night and thought the design was elegant and perfect for my girls. However, after spending two weeks looking for it again and where I could purchase/customize my own messages I came up empty handed. I decided to recreate the look by drawing my own flowers and ribbon then adding in the names of each person in my wedding party.

DIY Tote

I created the image in Illustrator using my Bamboo tablet to draw the ribbon and the flowers. I purchased HP Transfer paper for Light colored fabric and purchased the totes at hobby lobby. I then followed the instructions for the paper to complete the bags. When you print your design make sure you click mirror image or when you get all said and done your writing will be backwards.

    What a lovely idea. Do you also make them for the fathers of the bride and groom. I sure bet they would also get a kick out them. 🙂

      I had hats embroidered that said Father of the Bride and Father of the Groom! They were awesome.
