Canvas tote for the bride

bridal tote bag joy iron on letters

Wedding season is upon us and we have one coming up in our family. Our daughter is the bride-to-be and we are going all-out with a DIY wedding. Joy iron-on embroidered letters are perfect for personalizing shirts, bags and gifts for the bride and her attendants. 

I found everything I needed to make the bag at my local craft store. This is a quick and easy project!

The letters have a release paper on the back, that when taken off reveal a tacky surface. This allows you to place the letters where you want them. It is sticky, but not permanent. To make the letters adhere permanently, follow the manufacturer's directions and apply heat to the letters using an iron.

Supplies:

Joy embroidered letters to spell BRIDE.  (star appliqué sold separately)
Canvas bag
Rhinestone and tacky glue 
Iron, ironing board, pressing cloth

I also purchased a bandanna in one of the wedding colors. It serves as a liner for the bag to hold other gifts and the bride can use it to tie her hair back or as a neck kerchief.  

I will be making bags for the bridal attendants, but using smaller letters and in different colors. Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid take a little more room on the bag!



I hope you got some inspiration here today, if you would like to leave a comment or question, I love getting them.

Joy Embroidered letters can be found at your local craft store in a wide variety of fonts, sizes and colors!  Enjoy!
