Jared and I were at a local Cleveland craft store and happened upon a bin of nice organic cotton canvas bags for under $2 a piece. We snagged all of them (about 16) and took them home. We spent an evening sketching out a design together. It was important to me that it would be a design that people would actually want to use after the wedding (as opposed to our monogram or wedding date) so we went a long with our bird theme and came up with a pair of birds hanging out on a Peony bush.
I took silk screening in college and Jared has dabbled with it a little as well so it was pretty easy for me to paint this thing into a screen and print them all in an afternoon. I love the way they came out and I think they will be so cute as beach bags for our guests. I hope there is one left for me after we fill them all for guests.
