Hi Girls, Just want to be ahead of myself and get some gifts for my bridesmaid, I heard of a friend of a friend who gave her girls a make up bag with their name on it and a dressing gown with their names on it, I thought it was a nice momento, anyone know where I could purchase these thanks

Well you could get plain cloth make-up bags in Pennys/Dunnes and plain bathrobes and then customise them yourself using transfers. That would probably be the most economical approach. Try for the transfers, very reasonable and very fast delivery.

God that looks great, wonder how they turn out, I got a fab dressing gown in pennys last week in navy is so big and warm it would be fab if I could customise it, have you tried them?

Yep, but i didnt get the customized ones with whatever name you want, i bought the ones that are generic e.g. 'Bridesmaid, Bride, Mother of the Bride etc' and they were great. The postal is cheap £1 i think and i had my transfers within 2 days. They turn out really well when you transfer them. They come with directions of how to use them, my only tip would be hold the iron on for longer than the instructions tell you, when i did the time they said not all the diamontes were transferring so i had to hold the iron on a bit longer - and hey presto perfect! :wv
