    Those are super totes! They will love them for toting all their stuff for the wedding and will be a nice reminder after of the big day. A nice big tote is great for an extra pair of shoes/slippers, hair curler, brush, extra pantyhose, wallet with driver's license, lint brush, pepto bismol tablets, midol, needle and thread etc.

    Those are so beautiful--and in my favorite colors!! Would you please share the pattern name of the bags? They are some of the neatest ones I've seen. Thanks for sharing.

    Yes indeed, these are the wedding colors. Most of the venue decorations will be the black and white, just a touch of the green. I have also made them a quilt, the top is done, just need to find the time to get it quilted. Thank you ALL for the nice comments.

    Im so sorry..I dont have a pattern. I just started with the lining fabric - 18" square (theresbouts) then I used a light/medium fusible interfacing, both sides of the lining, makes it really nice. There is also a lined pocket on the inside. Then I pieced the outsides of the bags (to be the same size as the lining) I used fusible fleece on outside of bag. I quilted all of them except one, you really dont have to, I just felt like it, also adds stability. The straps are approx 32". Then there is an outside pocket that is also lined. I hope this helps...truely they are fairly simple to do Oh...I used magnetic snap on each one

    They're beautiful. I'm sure they will all love them.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    They are wonderful! Nice job
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Wonderful. What a nice way to start a long term relationship with your daughter-in-love. (That's what I call my daughter-in-law, as she is much more than an inlaw.)
