I offer you my version of a cute and useful gift bag for bottles. This bag will fit standard 0.75 bottles, and large — 1 liter.
In addition to usual sewing supplies you need:
1. Fabric of the two types (or one).
2. Lining cloth.
3. Pinking shears (optional).
4. Pattern (see the picture below).
Step 1. Print out the pattern. To test the accuracy of the pattern on it there are control segments of length 1, see the Pattern in PDF format upon request in a personal message. The arrow indicates the direction of the warp threads. Pattern is given without seam. The recommended allowance is 1 cm.
Before you start sewing, I recommend to read the entire manual to the end.
For convenience of printing on standard A4, the pattern is divided into two parts. Cut them out and glue along the dotted line following the triangular pointers.
Step 2. Cut out two parts of the lining. Don't forget to add bleeds on all sides of the pattern. The details are put with their right sides tigether and stitched, at top and bottom, as shown by the dotted line in the picture. Iron the allowances on both sides.
Step 3. Then, stitch the side seams of the bottom.
Step 4. Now cut the pattern at the lines marked with scissors.
Step 5. You will have two separate parts, 1 and 2. Cut out two pieces of each detail from the right side fabric of two types. Don't forget to add allowances on all sides of the pattern.
Step 6. Take one part 1 and one part 2, fold them face to face and sew along the cut line. Do the same with the second pair of details.
Step 7. Iron the allowances on two side of the top and stitch at a distance of 1-2 mm from the seam.
Step 8. Folsd the resulting two parts of the main fabric with the right sides togethes and repeat steps 2 and 3.
Step 9. Turn the lining outside in and insert it into the main blank so as to join the upper seams, side seams, as well as the circle cuts.
Step 10. Pin the cuts or sew, and then stitch.
Step 11. Extra allowance is cut with the pinking shears at 1-2 mm from the seam. Do the same with the allowances of the circular cuts (do not cut off).
Step 12. Through the unsewn side, turn the bag outside in. Gently smooth the seams and allowances. Fold the allowances along the circle to the inside, pin and stitch. Stitch from the other side.
The bag is ready!
Thank you for your attention!
Have a nice time at the party!
