DIY Tutorial: Wine Gift Bag

Hi all, Lisa D. here!
You may not know me because I am typically behind the scenes shipping, billing, and doing Fabric Mart's accounting.

That being said, I am also not one of our best sewers here. However, this wine bag is easy enough even I can make it! These wine bags are a great way to personalize my favorite "last minute gift "to give, wine!
They only take about 15 minutes to make and you can use almost any scrap of fabric.

I used a cow print woven raw silk here because this particular wine bag was for our CBE (Chief Blogging Executive) Katie who happens to be marrying a dairy farmer this Summer.

But like I said you can use almost anything, I personally love metallics and silks to make them fancy or cotton prints to make them fun. The recipient will also love that they can re-use it next time they would like to gift a bottle of wine. 



Materials:

  • Fabric, you will need at least a 5" by 30" piece, so 1/8 of a yard would work 
  • At least 20" Ribbon or Trim
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Sewing Machine or even just a Needle and Thread
1. Lay your fabric face down on your table

2. Fold over about 2" on the short side of each end to make a cuff/hem

3. Straight stitch a seam on each side to secure the hem

4. Fold fabric in half so that two hemmed ends meet and the face of the fabric is on the inside

5. Pin together wine bag sides placing the middle of the ribbon in the seam. Ribbon should be right below the hem on one side of the bag folded in half with the ribbon ends facing in. Remember the bag will be turned inside right at the end and the ribbon needs to be on the outside of the bag.

6. Stitch together the sides of the bags together including the middle of the ribbon.

7. Turn bag inside right
8. Insert wine, tie a bow with the ribbon, and relax!



Cheers! 

-Lisa

Hey all!  I hope you are all healthy, happy, and sewing!  With this craziness of CoVID, I figured at some point this school year, I will be quarantined due to exposure to the virus.  To get through that time, I decided to make something unbelievably comfortable and also cute.  Right?  Fabric Mart usually has athletic fabric and when I am in the mood to sew it up, I snatch it up!  I've never, ever been disappointed in this fabric selection.  Here is a link so you can explore.  Activewear selectionThis white and pink I used are active wear, not swimwear.  Using swimwear for clothing might drape a little differently, so try it out prior to your full commitment.  In other words, purchase a bit extra and make a muslin.  It helps!  Let's start with the white top.  It is a very simple design, and I've used this style/pattern numerous times and I knew it would fit.  Because the fabric is so stretchy I used SewkeysE tape at the shoulders, necklines, and hemlines.  My serger made q…

Happy Saturday LOVES! I am finally feeling less overwhelmed and adjusting to this distance teaching.  I am back in full swing for the new 2020-2021 academic school year and even though we encountered challenges the first week, I am happy to have survived the first 3 weeks.  As we plan to transition to brick and mortar (in person) in a few weeks, I am praying that our students and teachers remain safe. 2020 year has allowed  me to learn, reflect, grow and overcome many fears and challenges and be open to change. This month’s make had me in deep reflection about my sewing journey and how much I have grown over the past 3 years.  I am no longer scared of taking risks, speaking my truth and being my authentic self.  If you have been reading my blog posts for a while, I am pretty sure you have seen the growth as well.  Fabricmart has allowed me each month to remain consistent in my journey and next month I celebrate my 3 year blog anniversary with Fabricmart.   Now let’s get into this set!  I…
