A few of you asked about how I made my OOT bags...Here are some directions. Please feel free to PM me if you need more specifics.

 

I bought the bags from cheaptotes for .99 each. I bought iron on transfer paper which I printed the logo with the palm tree and the name and location on. Be sure that before you print them that you open up the image in Paint or something and flip the image so it prints inverted....the iron-on will then be ironed on to the bag correctly!! (Make sure you trim the iron on around your image just so you dont have the extra film on the bag too)

 

This is what they look like...

Once I finish the iron-on. I use a round form like this to make sure the bag is tight when I try to bead it.

I use round seed beads that I buy from whimbeads.com...you can get them at any craft store but I bought a lot and got a better price from here. I also use transparant thread...bought from michaels just so you don't see the thread on the inside of the bag. You will also need a beading needle...again at any craft store. (Its just really thin and have a huge long eye)

It takes a little practice but you just start outlining the iron on with the beads. Its just like sewing, but take two or three beads at a time on the needle before you back down over the bag and start threading like you would to embroider something...sounds harder than it is! Here is what it looks like when you start...sorry its kind of blurry.

Once I got the hang of it...about 2 hours a bag....its pretty mindless to do so I try to do it at night after work and it goes by pretty fast!

OMG. Those are fabulous. While I love the idea, there is no way I would complete a project like that. I'd get to bag two then get bored. Congrats for your tenacity and patients! Your guests will LOVE them.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
