Double Wine Tote Bag!


A few nights ago I was trying to decide what I wanted to make for my cousin's Christmas gift.  I had already made her a cute pillow for her apartment, but I wanted to do something else.

Then it dawned on me - she loves wine!  Why not give her a bottle of wine in a wine tote!

But then I had another great idea - a double wine tote!!

So as usual, I ran to google for answers and found an amazing double wine bag tote tutorial from HashiWorks!  Yes please! She even has a pdf file you can download with step-by-step instructions!

I loved these so much I have made three so far!

This is my favorite!



I'll be adding a flower embellishment to this bag tomorrow.



And this is the bag I made for my cousin.  She is a BIG Georgia Bulldogs fan, so I made it in bulldogs colors.  It matches her pillow that I'll post later!


Each of these took me about 1 1/2 hours to make - but I'm a real slow sewer.  I'm sure some of you pros could knock these out in no time!  These would make great gifts for anytime!

I used the wooden dowels from Lowes with the green end - I spent $3 in total on two dowels and had enough for three totes.  You use less than 1/2 a yard of fabric for the inside and outside, and I used fabrics from my stash.  So in total, each tote bag was about $1!  The contents are what cost me money!

Oh, and I took these to the wine store with me to pick up some wine, and they loved them!!

Cheers!
