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

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more. This pandemic has allowed me to appreciate deep conversations about racial injustice, police brutality, and their feelings about growing up black.
My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black. She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race”.

My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!
