For the Ladies

Last night, I wrapped the bridesmaid's presents.

Bridesmaids: Please vacate the premises.

I probably shouldn't've wrapped them so early, but I really don't want to be scrambling right before the rehearsal. If I don't do something when I think of it, it probably won't happen.

So I told you all that I made them tote bags, which I finished a long time ago. I ended up having enough scraps of fabric left over from that project to make my bridesmaid's matching jewelry rolls as well.

Sorry about the sideways....

The ribbon unties and you can thread rings through it, and there are 2 good sized zipper compartments to store jewelry in. You roll it up and tie it with the 2 long ribbons (I put little tags on them so people would know what they are).

And here is a tote bag with a jewelry roll:

This set is for Ryan's sister Erin, I love the pop of pink.

I also got a lightweight pashmina for everyone - red for the MOH's, since they're wearing aqua dresses, vice versa for the other B-maids.

So there it is, a bridesmaid present in its full form. They are all wrapped and sitting in a corner. I just need to write cards to the ladies and tie some ribbon and we're all done! Love having this crossed off my list...

I'm really glad I made their presents...I was able to get them more than if I had just bought them presents, and each bridesmaid has a tote bag/jewelry roll with fabric picked out just for them. Plus it was fun.

What are you doing for your bridesmaid's presents?


  1. Seriously? You made those?!? I am completely impressed. I also opted for silk jewelry rolls for my ladies along with some other little goodies: necklaces I had custom designed, little deco hangers for their gowns, a parasol for our photoshoot, etc. Fun stuff. You did a good thing getting it done and checked off the to-do list :)

  2. Great gifts!! And nice work getting all of that squared away in advance. You'll love yourself come wedding week, trust me.

  3. Wow, those look amazing! You are very talented, and your girls will love them :)

  4. Your idea of giving the ladies tote bags was great! I even went so far as to grab a pattern for it. Then I got bogged down with other stuff and I'm worried that I'm not going to have enough time to finish them.

    So, in short, the answer to your question is . . . I don't know.

  5. holy crap! Stacey you need to open and etsy store, these are amazing! i can't get over how complex the jewelry wraps are - amazing! go - do it and make a million dollars while making brides on the hunt for the perfect gifts happy girls at the same time.

  6. I am so impressed. There is no way I could do something like that!

    They will love their gifts!

  7. Wow - those jewelry wraps are amazing and so cute! Would you be willing to make more [for other DIY-challenged people]?

  8. They look great! Nicely done! I bought them small clutches, and we'll see what else I can fill them with

  9. They are going to LOVE those

  10. You did a fabulous job on the totes and jewelry roll. Awesome! And those pashminas are in my two new fav colors. Love.

  11. REALLY great job on both the Totes and the Jewelry Roll...SUPER cute!!!


Hearing from you all makes my day!
