We'll also be added a couple of beers in each and snacks, which we'll buy in Cabo.

I tried to do the iron on transfers, but I didn't like the line around the design, so I made a pocket instead. I still have to make the tags for the bags and the welcome letters.

Jess, your bags came out great. I really like the pocket idea. Your guests will be impressed.

    I think almost everyday I think of a new project, but I have to draw the line somewhere. :-)

    I can't believe it's almost time. Seriously, look for me around town if you go into Cabo. I know for sure we will be there Friday in the day (the girls) to do some "shopping" and what not. But really beside the wedding, nothing is set in stone.

        Jessalyn - Love the pocket!!! Did you just do an iron-on on the pocket part and then cut out around the line it created?

          Stephanie ~ I will certainly watch for you when we're in town. We don't have a set schedule either. Friday am I know I'm getting a massage (yay!).

          Kate~ I actually cut the rectangle of muslin fabric first, cut the edges with pinking shears, washed it so that the fabric would fray a little and did the iron on transfer onto the muslin. The muslin did shrink a little. I tried to cut the iron-on paper almost exactly the same size as the fabric. I put an old towel under the fabric when I ironed the transfer on.

          Next, I sewed the muslin square with the transfer onto a piece of brown fabric (which I also cut with pinking shears and washed to fray). After the two pieces were sewn together, I safety pinned them to the bag and sewed them on (the sewing was not an easy task...it took a few bags to get the process just right. I sewed the front and back together a few times and sewed the front to the handle a few times too, so make sure you have a seam ripper if you try this task).

          Thanks Courtney!

                Thanks. I had them done at Koozies, Custom Promotional Koozies, Personalized Wedding Coozies -Neoprene “Wetsuit Rubber” Collapsible Coolie I ordered 100 because we wanted extras. I made the design myself...well actually my brother drew our logo for us and then I designed the koozie myself. I had to go back and forth with the design department at dollar imprint about 3 times to get them the way I wanted them. Glad you like them.


                Thanks Jessica! I was bummed at first that the iron on transfer directly on the bag didn't look like I had hoped it would, but the end result worked out really well. I like the pocket and plan to put our welcome letter in there. The letter will stick out so that all you can see is "Welcome" in a large font that matches the writing on the pocket.
