  • Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    You can make these wine gift bags suitable for any occasion by changing the lining fabrics. You can also use any design for the embroidery. I really like the way these fretwork designs are just the right height and width to cover the front of the wine bottle.


    Step 1:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    For each bag cut a 23” length of ribbon and a 16” x 12” rectangle of the outside and lining fabrics; cut a piece of poly mesh stabilizer to fit the 5” x 7” hoop.


    Step 2:
    Mark the vertical center on the right side of the outer fabric with a marking pen; measure up 7” from the bottom of the outer fabric and draw a horizontal line.

    Step 3:
    Hoop the stabilizer and fabric aligning your drawn lines with the top, bottom and sides marks on your hoop. Align the embroidery needle with the center of your marks.

    Step 4:
    Load and embroider the desired design in a thread color that coordinates with the lining you have chosen.

    Step 5:
    Trim the excess stabilizer from around the back of the embroidery.

    Step 6:
    Make a small mark 3 1/4” from the top of the left side of the outer fabric.

    Step 7:
    Fold the ribbon in half and place it just under the line you marked, stitch across the folded edges with less than a ¼” seam.

    Step 8:
    Place the lining fabric and outer bag fabric right sides together; stitch across the top of two fabrics with a ¼” seam.

    Step 9:
    Press the seam allowances to the lining side of the bag; top stitch 1/8” on the lining side of the bag to understitch the lining.

    Step 10:
    Fold the outer fabric and the lining in half lengthwise making sure the ribbon ends are tucked well inside the bag.

    Step 11:
    Measure up 6” from the bottom of the lining and make a mark; measure up 4” from the first mark and make a 2nd mark; stitch all around the bag with a ¼” seam leaving the 4” between the two marks unstitched as this is where you will turn the bag. Backstitch before and after the opening to keep the seam from pulling out when you turn the bag.

    Step 12:
    This is what your wine gift bag will look like at this point.

    Step 13:
    To box the corners separate the sides of the lining and pull outwards until the seam at the bottom of the bag is in the center and forms a triangle at each end; align the side seam with the bottom seam on one side. Please excuse the change of fabrics in this picture as I failed to take one with the lining fabric used in this sample.

    Step 14:
    Measure up 1 ¼” from the tip of the triangle and mark the fabric; then extend this line across the triangle.

    Step 15:
    Stitch across the drawn line backstitching at the beginning and end of the stitching; trim the triangle off at ¼” from the stitching; repeat for the other corner of the lining and at both corners of the outer fabric.

    Step 16:
    Reach through the opening in the lining all the way to the end of the outer fabric and pull the bag right side out through the opening.

    Step 17:
    Finger press out the corners at the ends of the lining and outer fabric.

    Step 18:
    Fold in the seam allowances of the opening in the lining; clip or pin together and top stitch close to the edge to close the opening.

    (Click Image to Enlarge)



    Step 19:
    Tuck the lining inside the bag aligning the bottom corners. Due to the understitching the lining should lay very nicely inside the bag fabric, press the top edges. If you find you have wrinkled your bag fabric in the turning process, roll up a hand towel and insert it into the bag to press it without causing creases.

    Step 20:
    Insert the bottle of wine and tie the ribbon at the base of the neck. Congratulations your embroidered Wine Gift Bag is complete!

    For the love of embroidery…
