  • How to make a bottle cover. Embroidered Wine Tote  - Step 1
    Step 1

    Transfer your embroidery pattern to one exterior piece of fabric and stitch. I used the burlesque fan dancer pattern from Jenny Hart's Embroidered Effects book. Available here: http://sublimestitching.com/collections/books/products/embroidered-effects

    Cut the two exterior pieces of fabric to 8x14-inches, making sure to the embroidery is centered on one of the exterior pieces of fabric. Cut the lining and batting to 8x14-inches, as well. Cut the fabric for the strap to 4x21-inches.

    Assemble the exterior portion of the bag by laying the exterior pieces of fabric right sides together and the batting on the outside of either piece. Stitch around three sides using a 1/4 seam allowance, leaving the top open.

    Create a square flat bottom for the bag by taking the bottom corner seams and and pressing them flat against one another. Sew 2-inches down from the point. Clip the excess fabric and repeat on opposite corner.

    Assemble the lining of the bag by placing the two lining pieces right sides together. Mark a 2-inch space to leave unsewn, this will be used to flip the bag inside out later. Sew around the three sides using a 1/4-inch seam allowance, leaving the top open. Make sure to leave your marked space open, as well.

    Flip the tote through the opening in the lining and stitch shut. I like to run this through the sewing machine, but it can be hand sewn with a slip stitch if you like.
