How to sew a wine bottle bag gift ‘wrap’

 This article is brought to you by Lizzsews.

These wine bottle bags and a quick and easy sewing project. They're the perfect way to wrap your wine bottle to gift.

They do not have handles, they are not a wine bottle carrier, they are used as ‘gift wrap’

You could try and sew some handles on the wine bottle wrap if you wanted to. If you do sew handles on this wine bottle bag, I would love to see how it turns out in Lizzsews facebook group, or by emailing the result to me at!

What you will need:

  • Cotton fabric
  • Iron and ironing board 
  • Rotary cutter and self-healing cutting mat (or scissors)
  • Seam gauge or measuring tape  
  • Sewing machine
  • Sewing machine thread and needle
  • Twine, ribbon or something of the sort
  • Optional: pins

The steps:

   1. Iron fabric and cut 4 strips of 17 1/8” x 7”. If you’d like they can be all the same fabric or different. I chose to use a patterned fabric for two strips and a solid fabric for the other two. 

   2. Place two strips (I chose the non-matching strips) right sides together. And create a pen mark at 12” long and again at 12 5/8” on both sides of the strip. Repeat with the other two strips. 

   3. Start to sew down the right side from the mark that is lower down. Pivot at the bottom, sew the bottom, pivot again and sew up the side. Stop sewing at the lower line. 

   4. Sew from the line to the top on both sides, don’t forget to backstitch at the beginning and the end. After this, you should have both sides sewn except for a small gap on both sides in the same spot. 

   5. Take the strip and place it down on a surface so that it is flat with one the seams you had sewn is in the center. 

   6. Take the bottom, grab the back and the front of the strip and flip it up so that it is almost like a diamond with half of the diamond on top of the strip and the other half not.

   7. Make two straight line markings about .5” away from the tips of the so-called diamond. Sew along these lines and cut off the excess about a 1/4” away from your stitches. 

   8. Repeat steps 3-7 but with the other two strips. 

   9. With both strips still inside out, take the top of the fabric and fold it down to the outside about a 1/4” and iron. Flip one strip right side out and it should have the fold on the inside with no raw edges showing. 

   10. Place the strip with the wrong side out inside of the other strip and match the sides up. 

   11. Sew around the wine bag where the holes were made, one stitch around where the top marking was and another for the second marking. Feel free to mark this using a pencil or pen marking that can go away.

   12. At the top of the wine bag, fold all layers down inside themselves about a 1/4”, I pinned this one.

Add in a ribbon or whatever you’d like to the little tube thing that we created in step 11 and your wine bag is complete!

Guide To The Three Main Machine Embroidery Stabilizers

 This article is brought to you by  Lizzsews . Here is everything that you need to know about the three main machine embroidery stabilizers. Stabilizers are important in machine embroidery; they prevent puckering and support the fabric.  The stabilizer goes underneath the fabric you are embroidering. Although there are some stabilizers that will go on top of certain types of fabric, this is called a topper.  A bottom stabilizer is always needed, you can never embroider without stabilizer, but a stabilizer topper is only needed for certain blanks. The three main types of stabilizers are cutaway, tearaway, and wash away.  The first is a cutaway stabilizer. A cutaway stabilizer can be used on clothes and many different types of fabric. The cutaway stabilizer is permanent and is mainly designed for knit fabric. It is non-woven and helps get rid of pulled or sagging stitches.  The cutaway stabilizer has a lot of stretch resistance and stays intact after wearing, using, and launderin
