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

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order:


This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first.
I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern.


The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.   I started…

Fabricista Guest Post: "Julie's Picks" Goes to the Opera

Hello, fellow fabric enthusiasts and sewers alike ! My name is Mary Martha and I am thrilled to be presenting a guest post for Fabric Mart's Fabricista blog. As a bit of background, I fell madly in love with opera in 2015 when I attended my first performance in a movie theater as part of the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" simulcasts, which projects live staged operas in New York City into cinemas worldwide via satellite. (They're fantastic !) Since the start, I have dressed the part of the characters when attending these performances, beginning with outfits fashioned from scarves and skirts in my mother's closet to more ornate costumes. It was during this time that I taught myself to sew using a sewing machine and I haven't looked back ─ my life was changed forever !
In December 2018, I subscribed to Julie's Picks swatch club as an educational experience: I wanted to expand my knowledge of different fabrics besides the typical polyester satins I h…
