This past weekend I was able to celebrate a birthday with a long time and dear friend of mine. Since the event was all black, I want to give her something she could use. Since we both love wine, and I need something to accent my black, I made us some wine tote bags. They were a hit!!!!
Pattern Description: Wine Bottle Tote by Shabby Fabrics
Pattern Sizing: One size
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, with a minor modification
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that this was quick and fun project for a Saturday afternoon. Dislike…this pattern in for narrow wine bottles, not the fat ones. I will have to make another bag and make some measurement adjustment for a the fat bottles.
Fabric Used: Quilting cottons from Joann Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Instead of using the charm packs, I used quilting cotton and quilted grid lines in it. I added some bling pieces to it to make it differnent and my own. I also increased the length and width of the pattern pieced by 1/2 inch. I will go back and make adjustment for the larger wine bottles
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES
Conclusion: this was a fun and quick project. Great for yourself or as gifts. For those looking to get their sewing and quilting mojo back, this will be the project.
I was able to fine a beautiful wine quilting fabric at Joann’s and use it as the lining for the tote.
This is the wine tote I presented it to my friend and she LOVED IT!
Until Next Time….Happy Sewing Everyone..
