Soft and Stable Wine Bag Tutorial

These wine bags are great to make with fun fabrics and Soft and Stable. Here is a quick tutorial to whip one of these up for your next hostess gift.

Cut an outer fabric and a lining fabric 17" x 12.5". Cut a piece of Soft and Stable byAnnie 16.25" x 11.75".

Sew front to lining at top using a 1/4" seam allowance.

Press seam open and then fold lining to the inside and press well.

Open up and fold in half lengthwise, right sides together. Sew across bag front bottom, up the sides, across the top seam and down the sides of the lining. Leave the bottom lining open for turning.

The bottom of the lining has also been left open to stuff the Soft and Stable inside. Work in place so that the Soft and Stable is between the outside fabric and the lining.

Try placing the Soft and Stable around the wrong side of the outside fabric and pull the lining over it.

Wiggle in place and smooth.

Once the Soft and Stable is in place, fold under the raw edges of the lining and machine stitch closed.

Turn right side out and follow the instructions on the package of the big grommets on how to mark and snap the big grommets in place.

All done! They don't take long to using fun fabrics!!! Let me know if you have questions. Jerilynn
