Bottle Gift Bags

I am such a good aunt.

When my niece and her husband go to friends for dinner and bring a bottle of wine he thinks that it should be done with style and grace and not a brown paper bag.

Periodically I get a call to please make a supply of these goodie bags. This time the call was for Christmas and for non Christmas fabrics bags.   

They really are very easy to spit out and they do make a dent in the stash so it's a win all the way around.

The only real extra that I do is to finish off the seam. I do like the look of a flat feld seam.
Since the bag only has the one seam down the back and across the bottom it really isn't much of an effort but I always feel better once it's done.

The pathetic part of this process is that I never make bags for my wine gifts, but I do make the wine.

Have a great week and if you are celebrating, have a great Turkey day.


  1. Very cute bags! I agree, the finished seam looks nice.

    Bag....or...Wine???? Hmmmm, tough choice ;)

  2. Great bags! And, impressive that you finish off the much nicer when they will be seen. Just like any profession or hobby, we just seem to be more willing to do something for someone else and not for our self.

  3. I think these wine bags are a great idea, presentation is the key
    I love the Christmas fabric.

  4. Bottle bags are always a nice addition to taking a bottle along. They also keep on giving when the recipient reuses them to the next occasion. Your seams are very nice. Creative Stitching Bliss...

  8. These concepts are very innovative, thanks for discussing them! I appreciate the christmas year a lot and I have been looking for some fun actions that my sweetheart and I can do together. I also have been looking for some gift bags for her

  9. Those are really nice looking. My wife made a few gift items for some ladies in our congregation that were like those above. From what I heard through my wife; the ladies loved the bottle gift bags.
