Wine Bag Quilted Tutorial using Hand Painted Fabric

Using one of my 3 1/2" X 8 1/2" hand dye painted rectangle,  I made this wine bag using a pattern from Pieceful Designs. Click here to find the pattern .

Wine bag with my
hand dye painted fabric.

Sew on strips and the main bag fabric.
Layer light cotton, batting and top piece
Backside of free motion stitching of the grapes.
Quilting lines added to the main part of the bag.
Quilt a square for the bottom and cut out a circle.

Sew in the bottom. Sew a lining and insert inside your wine bag with wrong sides together. Bind the top edge and add handles and a button detail. Aren't those purple buttons the greatest!

Completed insulated wine bag. Nice for carrying your own wine or for gift giving.

Gill, thanks for checking out my blog.

Win, could you create a mixed media fabric piece 4x9"? I could add some fabric and sew you a wine bag.
