Wine Bottle Gift Bag Tutorial

I would like to share an easy little project I put together just for you. It is a tutorial for a Wine Gift Bag. Just a little project that can be done in a very short amount of time, but will add just a little something special to any gift.

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links.

Materials needed for this project:

  • 1/4 yard pretty fabric
  • 20 inches of coordinating ribbon for the tie
  • coordinating thread
  • ruler
  • scissors
  • iron

Sewing Instructions

Fold your fabric in half, selvage to selvage.  Measuring from the folded side, cut a piece of fabric 17.25  inches wide by 6 inches tall.  (when unfolded, it will be 34.5 x 6)

Next, flip your fabric and fold it right sides together and sew up the long sides using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Do this for both sides.

Clip the corners of the bottom as shown, taking care not to cut into your seam.

Flip the bag right side out.  Use a pencil or turning tool to help turn the corners of the bag.

Fold the top edge over 1/2 inch and press.  Pin if needed.  Sew a straight stitch 1/4th inch from the folded edge.   Be careful not to catch the other side of the bag in your stitches.

Next fold the top side in again, this time 2 1/4 inches.  Press well and sew a straight stitch 2 inches from the fold.  You will probably need to manipulate your fabric around since the opening might be too narrow to fit around your machine.  (Mine was.)  This stitch should catch the folded inside edge.

Finally, cut a strip of ribbon to about 20 inches in length.  Tie a pretty bow around the bottle neck.

Tada!  You’re done! A cute little gift bag, which could be used for many different-sized gifts, not just wine bottles.  All you would need to do is to adjust your measurements!

Can I tell you a secret?  I tried a little experiment…  The striped bag is made completely with hot glue!  Yep, hot glue, no sewing at all…  So I guess this could be a no-sew project too!

  1. Thanks again for sharing, I made a few last night, but did mine in felt. Looks so cute. Thanks for sharing over at Sunday's Best and letting us see your creative side.

  2. Those are so adorable. I used a sewing machine when I was in junior high and that's the last time I went anywhere near one of those machines. Sometimes half the fun of gifts is the creative wrapping people use.

  3. Wow! You are a Christmas crafting genius! So glad I found your project via Centsational Girl.
