Wine Bottle Bags

I know it's too early to think about Christmas but one thing I have learnt is that if you are buying alcohol for Christmas presents then you need to wrap and pack as soon as you get it home otherwise it will evaporate and you'll end up having to buy more. So I made a start today. This is a quick and easy method of making bottle bags but the gathered base means It is only suitable for bottles with a dimpled base as the gathered edge sits in the base and the bottle can stand safely.The pattern is here if you want to make one.

Wine Bottle Bag Pattern

Thin cotton or finer fabric (heavier fabrics will not work as the gather is too bulky)
Main fabric 13 inches(33cm)  x 16 inches(40cm)
Lining fabric 13 inches(33cm) x 18 1/2 inches(47cm)

Use 3/8 inch (5cm) seam allowance throughout
With right sides together seam along base of fabric

Unfold fabric and refold in half in the other direction to form a long tube
Seam along long edge
Turn main fabric to outside and sew round 3/8 inch(1cm) above joined edge to form a casing

Thread the casing with strong,non-elastic thread. Pull up tightly and tie ends of thread together.Trim thread.
Fold top 1 inch(2.5cm) of lining to wrong side and press
Fold lining down again so that lining covers the top 3/8 inch(1cm) of main fabric
Sew round edge of lining fabric where it covers main fabric
Place bottle in bag, tie with pretty ribbon, add a matching gift card and hide away until needed

Matching gift card
To make matching gift cards
Stick fabrics to both sides of a piece of pelmet vilene with wunda web
Cut out a 2 1/2 inch square and sew round it in a contrasting color using a long (4.5mm) straight stitch
Cut a square of cream card a little smaller than the sewn line
Sew around edge of card using the same stitch
In one corner add a card eyelet in a color to match your stitching
