Step By Step Sew Along: How To Make Wine Bags
This quick and easy step by step sew along on how to make wine bags will have you sewing homemade gifts for all your friends and family.
Wine Bottle Bag Pattern Dimensions
To get ready to sew a wine bottle gift bag, you need to measure and cut a piece of fabric 22 inches long and 12 inches wide. You will also need a 22 inch piece of ribbon. I use quilting cotton for the bag, there are so many cute prints and most quilting cotton is budget friendly. You can get 6 wine bags from one yard of fabric with an all over design. If there is a one way pattern like the deer wine bag, you will need to cut them more creatively.
If you have a wide arm on your sewing machine, then you may need to make the wine bag width 12.5 or 13 inches. You need the bag to spin around the arm easily.
Press A Hem On The Top
I like to start by pressing down a 4 inch hem on the top edge. This is a marker to make the top edge sewing the DIY wine bag easier.
I like 3/8 inch satin ribbon, but other types like grosgrain and burlap are fun too. Fold your ribbon in half right sides together. Pin it just below where the folded edge, on the right side of the fabric side seam allowance edge.
Sew The Side Seam And Bottom Seam
Pin the right side of the bag raw edges together and across the bottom of the bag. Sew down the side seam encapsulating the ribbon. Then sew across the bottom seam of the wine bag.
Pro Tip: If you don’t have an arm on your sewing machine, then sew the side seam with the top edge folded in place.
Pinch And Sew The Feet
Flatten out the bottom of the bag and fold into a triangle. Stitch across the triangle creating “feet” so the bottom of the bag will sit flat. Check out the sew along tutorial for a visual on how to sew the two pieces together to create the bag bottom feet.
Fold And Sew Top Edge
Fold along the first pressed seam (the 4 inch top edge fold) and slide the bag piece onto the sewing machine arm. Stitch around the bag.
