Isn’;t this fabric so amazing? It’;s Heather Ross Far Far Away 2 Roses in Plum. This is a home decor weight fabric, a cotton-linen blend, so it’;s heavier. if you want to use a regular quilting cotton then definitely add some fusible interfacing to your project. I love the anthropologie-rumpled look of this fabric for a gift like this.

Let’;s start by making the strap. You could use cotton webbing or leather or whatever you’;ve got, but I made a fabric one. So start by cutting a 10″; X 4″; piece of fabric. Fold each long side into the center and iron (so each fold is 1″;):

Then fold the whole thing in half (so the unfinished edges are enclosed in the fold) and iron again:

Sew the open edge with a straight stitch:

Then sew the opposite edge with a straight stitch:

On the sides of the strap, sew with a zig zag to finished the edges and keep them from unravelling:

Now let’;s make the bag. So cut a piece of fabric 12″; X 17″; and fold it in half right sides facing so two 17″; sides are aligned.

Sew up the 17″; edge (a straight stitch would be fine but I used a zig zag for extra strength) and finish the edge, I just cut with pinking shears:

Then sew one short side closed and finish the edge:

Now with the short sewn side on top, bring the long seam to the front center and fold into a triangle shape. You will have two triangles of fabric with a straight fold on the inside. Hard to explain but just do it and you’;ll see how it works. This is how you create a gusset:

Draw a 3″; line straight across the triangle. This pic is a 2″; line, but I realized after the fact that a 3″; line is necessary to create the proper gusset for a wine bottle:Lift up the top triangle and draw the same 3″; line on the bottom triangle:

Sew across the lines you drew:

Cut the tip of the triangle off above your sewn line:

Now turn your bag right side out. Along the top edge, fold the fabric 1″; to thw wrong side and iron:

Then fold another inch and iron, then sew in place:

Turn your bag right side out and pin your strap in place at each side, with the seam centered in between:

Sew the strap on each side with a box shape like so:


Add a gift tag, a bottle of wine, and maybe a few pretty wine glasses. Done!

Nice way to spruce up a simple gift right? I want to go on a wine-drinking picnic right now. But I will also need a snuggie because it’;s way too cold for a wine-drinking picnic.
