I bought fabric (2 yards for each tote for about $3 a yard with Joann’s coupon) and made these totes for my bridesmaids. All three came out to under $20. Then I bought flips flops from Old Navy for $2.50 and sun glasses for $5 and printed wedding calendars on some stationary I already had (since I’m giving the gifts now and not at the rehearsal dinner). I think I averaged about $12 per girl and it’s a pretty nice gift I think.

Cute! I love ON’s flip flops, got them for my BMs too. I really like how you coordinated them with the tote colors!

Wow! I think those are adorable!! The handmade factor and simplicity of a couple things and not a ton of junk far outweighs the price you spent.
Kudos! Those are amazing gifts!

Wow! You did a really nice job!
I made my Bridesmaid or Best Man totes too! I did different colors just like you did. My total cost was around $10/bag, because I had interfacing and such involved.
