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.
