So, my first tutorial .... Wine Not! Remember the dimensions from yesterday? Good thing you can go check out yesterday's post to get them!! Okay, so after you follow the instructions from yesterday, this is how it should look. And I hate to admit it, but I tore my fabric. Yup, I can not cut in a straight line to save my soul! And don't even get me started on a rotary cutter. Another story, another time!
|The two pieces of fabric, right side to right side.|
Remember to tuck the tie on the inside of the two pieces and sew over it a few times, just to make it extra secure. If you use thin cotton fabric, while you are sewing around the three sides, every now and then, put your machine in reverse and go over that spot a few times.

pinkied/trimmed the excess fabric.
Isn't so cute? I thought I would make a birthday bag and add a little tag to it for my girlfriend with the December birthday! I made the tie a bit longer so I could tie a bow, all birthday presents need bows! Don't you think? You all know I love wine, but these would be cute with old fashion candies in them for the kiddles too?!!
