Boozy Bags Pattern

These bags are great for gifting wine, but could be used for anything! I’ve filled some with candy, small toys, and various sizes of wine. This is a quick project that uses whatever material you have on hand. Have fun with this quick gift idea!

Standard Wine Bag Measurements:

  • (2) Exterior tops (suggest quilt cotton) : 7”x3.5”
  • (2) Exterior bottom : 7”x12”
    •  — interface exterior with woven interfacing if using lightweight material
  • (2) Lining (suggest waterproof canvas) : 7”x15”
  • [optional] (2) Drawstring Channel : 3”x6.5”
  • [optional] (2) Cording or ribbon : 30”
  • Strap : 4”x18”

*** If you don’t want to create the two toned exterior, just use the lining size for the exterior as well.

Large Wine Bag Measurements:

  • (2) Exterior tops (suggest quilt cotton) : 9″ x 3.5″
  • (2) Exterior bottom : 9″ x 12″
    •  — interface exterior with woven interfacing if using lightweight material
  • (2) Lining (suggest waterproof canvas) : 9″ x 15″
  • [optional] (2) Drawstring Channel : 3″ x 8.5″
  • [optional] (2) Cording or ribbon : 34″
  • Strap : 4”x18”

Let me know if you adjust this for other sizes as well! I hope this gives you some great ideas for quick gifts. Have a great end of the year!

Below is the video tutorial walking you through the pattern!

Block Party – Month 10

I cannot believe we're about to leave 2020. I become so nostalgic this time of year, looking back on all that's changed. Honestly my head kind of spins when I see everything we've experienced over the last 12 months! But if I could only say one thing about what I've learned this year, it would be that strangers can become family in the blink of an eye. I've never felt so close to so many, while being so far away.

Gifts For The Quilter

In some ways, quilting requires very few items. You don't even need a sewing machine! Just some fabric, thread, a couple needles and a good idea. However, the colorful patterns, the EPP kits and all of those incredible fabric bundles makes it easy to find a great gift for the quilter in your life. Here are some of my favorite tools, books and fabrics. Have fun and Happy Holidays!

Gifts For The Bag Maker

Bag makers use such a wide variety of tools! From the items that make the hard work easier, to the ones that just make it SO much more fun, you won't be short on gift ideas for your bag making friends. I've included the essentials I use every day, as well as some cozy and inspirational items. As we move into colder weather, us barefoot sewers need to protect our tootsies. These slippers are my favorite! I also included 3 bag making books I have on my personal wish list. These are great to study for ideas and inspiration. Have fun and Happy Holidays!
