Wine Bottle Gift Bag Tutorial

Wine Bottle Gift Bag

(It’s simpler than I make it sound.)

Fabric needed:

7 ¼” x 27” for bag

2 ¼” x 13” for binding

2 ¾” x 27” for tie

(I should have chosen a different fabric for the tutorial, it’s a bit hard to see.)

Fold bag fabric in half, with wrong sides together. (Yes, wrong sides together. This is how you do French seams.)

Stitch ¼” up the sides.

Wine Bag Tutorial 1

Trim the seam allowance a bit, so it’s more like 1/8”.

Fold inside out and stitch 3/8” seam allowance up the sides.

Wine Bag Tutorial 2

As you can see, it makes nice, clean seams on the inside.

Wine Bag Tutorial 3

Fold right side out. Wrap binding around top and mark where to sew so it fits nicely. The bag should be something like 12″ in circumference so if you fold it in half and sew at 6″ that should be cool too.

Then pin in place and sew onto bag with a ¼” seam allowance from the top.

Wine Bag Tutorial 4

Fold right side out and iron the inside seam allowance up.

Wine Bag Tutorial 5

Fold the binding down and stitch.

Wine Bag Tutorial 6

Fold and iron the tie in half twice lengthwise.

Wine Bag Tutorial 7

Fold the corners down then back and fold the whole thing in half.

Wine Bag Tutorial 8 Wine Bag Tutorial 9

Stitch along open side and ends.

Wine Bag Tutorial 10

Center the tie with the width of bag and about 2 ½” – 3” from the top.

Wine Bag Tutorial 11

Double stitch in the center (for added security.) Make sure to only go through one side of the bag. It takes a bit of wriggling to get it under the foot but you can do it.

Wine Bag Tutorial 12

And voila.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial, I am going to try it out tonight as I have a class of 6 that I am going to teach to make this wine bag. Reading through it, it sounds simple so hopefully I will pull this one off. Thanks once again. I will comment further after the initial trial. Bless you. Heidi
