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: Ready For A Cruise

Happy new year! This year my husband and I are looking forward to a late spring river cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  Since I started last year sewing my outfits for the various excursions on land, the only garment pieces left to sew were those I will wear on the ship. I wanted these to be interchangeable, so I picked gray as my base color.  I wanted very comfortable garments for ease of movement around the ship. Luckily Fabric Mart was running a huge knit sale and pattern sales were going on in many stores and online. For lounge wear, the heathered medium gray polyester/lycra double brushed knit (SKU: DLD3889d) was perfect for a jacket and a pair of pants. I used McCall’s M7294 pattern for the loose-fitting unlined jacket and Butterick B6137 for the semi-fitting pants with elasticized waistband, pockets, and leg bands. For me, attaching the leg bands gave a better finish than hemming.  For the top, the golden yellow/off-white polyester/rayon/lycra tie-dye French ter

Made By A Fabricista: Sweater Obsession

It’s been a while since I have sewn with a sweater knit, and now I think I seriously have a Sweater Obsession going on. This Michigan weather absolutely calls for a cozy sweater but why not look comfy and cute all at the same time.   I’m completely in love with this Thick Rib Sweater Knit fabric in the color Heathered Cream . I love a beautiful cream color in the winter months and to combine it with a sweater knit, makes it perfect. If you are like me and tend to get hot quickly, this fabric is for you. While it is labeled as a thick sweater knit, it is not very thick at all, making it easy to wear under coats and jackets all while still being perfect for anyone looking to make a sweater with this fabric. This fabric is so soft and while it is not a thicker sweater knit in my opinion, it still seems to hold it stretch pretty well.  I chose to use my own self-drafted dress pattern and jazz it up a bit by adding a cute Bolero/Shrug . I have had the Butterick 5797 in my possession for

Made By A Fabricista: Tropical Vibes

Happy first Friday of a brand New Year! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy going into 2022.  Whew, 2021 was a roller coaster year but it allowed us to truly appreciate every single moment. I am excited to return as a blogger with Fabric Mart and will definitely be sharing more beginner sewing tips and tricks. When I was packing for my trip to Jamaica in November last year, I noticed I had nothing to bring that had a tropical print. I knew for my next make, I would select fabric that reflected my love for warm, tropical weather and Jamaica my island home. When I searched and came across these rayon challis prints , I knew right away it would be palazzo pants or a faux jumpsuit  to rock on my next getaway - Spring break. I absolutely love the lola tank and dress pattern I made here and yes I decided to make a few more over the holiday break using some ponte knit I had in my stash from Fabric Mart. Our temperature here in South Florida has been in the mid to high 70s for most of
