As much as I love entertaining, it’s nice to be invited to someone else’s home for dinner every now and then. We all need a break, right? Even though I may get by with not cooking dinner for one evening, I never like to show up empty handed. A bottle of good wine makes a perfect gift for a dinner host. Today I’m sharing how you can take it up a notch by making a homemade gift bag. Let me show you how to make an easy sew wine gift bag in just a few simple steps.
Materials needed for this project:
- 2 pieces of coordinating fabrics
- scissors and cutting mat
- matching thread
- 12 in piece of matching ribbon, twine or other trim
- sewing machine
- straight pins
How to make a wine gift bag:
Start out by measuring and cutting your fabric. You want both pieces of fabric to measure 12 in x 16 in.
Fold over both pieces of fabric with the wrong side out so that each piece measures 6 in x 16 in.
Sew the fabric together along the long side and one short side of the fabric, leaving one end open.
Now it’s time to sew a box corner for the bottom of the bag. You will do this for both pieces of fabric. Grab the two bottom corners and fold the fabric so that the bottom seam now goes right down the middle. This will form a triangle on each end (see picture below). Sew a straight line across the triangle 1 inch from the tip.
Snip off the triangles carefully with a pair of scissors.
Turn the fabric you want to be on the outside of your wine gift bag so that it is right side out. Now slip the other piece of fabric inside with the right sides still facing.
Fold both fabrics down so that the raw edges meet 1/2 inch and line them up. You can line them up evenly or choose to have the outer fabric overlap slightly like I did. Secure into place with pins.
Sew the edges together and you’re all done.
All that’s left to do is slip a nice bottle of wine into the bag and secure it with a ribbon.
