- Wedding: July 2012
I am trying to keep to practical items when it comes to my bridesmaids gifts for the wedding. One for budget purposes, but two, I have a jewelry box dedicated to jewelry I have received as a bridesmaid – 8 freaking times that I will never wear again. So I have made them pearl bracelets bracelets, wine glasses, and now a drawstring purse bag for the wedding to hold all their cell phones and other items. I am planning to give these to them at the rehearsal and have a couple essential items already in them (bandaids, advil, chocolate, lotion, and nail file).
My mom got a new sewing machine for christmas that does embroidery so I gave it a shot. I would have liked a different font, but I think they came out just fine. I bought the navy satin fabric from Joann’s (with a coupon of course). I think it cost me around $8 total. And the ribbon is just some basic silver ribbon from Joann’s. I’m thinking about going with a silver satin ribbon for the girls bags. This one is mine.
