Instructions

    Making the Wine Bag

  1. 1

    Use scissors or a rotary cutter to cut your fabric into two large rectangles. Pin rectangles right sides together and be sure to line up all the edges.

  2. 2

    Begin sewing a 1/4 inch seam down one long side, after backstitching to secure your stitch. Backstitch again when you reach the corner and continue around to the other side.

  3. 3

    Continue sewing until you reach the end of the other long side and backstitch once more. Be sure to leave the one narrow end open.

  4. 4

    Fold the end of your narrow opening down 1/2 inch and secure with pins. Sew this edge down or baste it in place. Fold the edge once more creating a 1-inch seam. Pin in place. Sew this hem down a 1/4 inch away from the bottom of the hem.

  5. 5

    Clip any excess strings and turn the bag right side out. Push the corners out and smooth the seams as outward as possible. Iron if desired.

  6. 6

    Place your wine of choice inside the bag and tie the ribbon into a bow outside the bottle just at the area of the bottle neck.

Tips and warnings

  • Choose fabrics that fit the occasion. Christmas fabrics for a holiday party, polka dots for a birthday, stars and stripes for a fourth of July party, or choose a novelty fabric with grapes or wine bottles on it. These bags don't take that much fabric. Buying either a fat quarter or a 1/4 yard will give you enough to make one bag, keeping the price down.
