double wine bag thumb1

So I am no wine connoisseur. In fact I haven’t found a wine I like. But maybe my taste buds will develop beyond a 5-year old one day and I won’t be so picky and I might enjoy a glass. Specially if it comes in these amazing Wine Gift Tote Bag.

However, I have friends and family who love going to wine tastings and trying different kinds of wine. To them it is a hobby.

So today I made a glittered double wine gift bag perfect for giving to a wine-loving individual on your Christmas list.

Supplies:

If you are considering purchasing a Silhouette machine now is the time. Amazon has it at the lowest price of the month.  

Currently, Uncommon Goods has a double wine totes for $34. Knowing how inexpensive canvas totes are I knew this would be a great way to present wine.

I used the Tulip Shimmer Sheets and my Cameo machine to cut out the glittered wine bottle shapes and then ironed them onto the double tote.

How To Make the Wine Gift Tote Bags

Step 1

First I measured the middle of my canvas bag and sewed a line down the middle of it (see photo below) ending right before where the bottom lies flat.

Step 2

I designed wine bottles with “wine words” in them in my Silhouette studio program (font: Accord SF).

Step 3

Then I took a Tulip Shimmer Sheet and burnished it to the Silhouette carrier sheet. I changed my setting to a speed of 6, thickness to 33 and a blade depth to 7 with a double cut. 

My Silhouette machine cut this like butter.

Step 4

I peeled the letters and excess Tulip Shimmer Sheet away and was left with my sparkly wine bottle image. 

Then cut out “Chablis, Riesling, Merlot and Moscato but you could use any words you want. I cut two bottles onto one of the glittered sheets.

Step 5

I set the cut out shimmer sheet onto the front of my canvas tote and put a press cloth over the top and ironed it for 40 seconds. 

Then I ironed on the little pieces like the middle of the o’s, a’s and b’s. 

I ironed on 4 total wine bottles, 2 on the front and 2 on the back.

Step 6

Add two bottles of wine and you have a great gift for the wine connoisseur on your list.

Tip: This would make a great wedding gift, instead of wine names you can put the couple’s name on it.

  1. You should try Oak Leaf wine. From Walmart. $2.89 bottle approximately. Honestly, the cabernet is very good.

  2. I wasn’t a wine drinker, either. Then I discover Riesling. My fave one is in a bright blue bottle and the name is flat escaping right now. I like Moscato’s also, but it was a taste I developed. But the Riesling I could drink all day long!

  3. These are adorable! My girlfriends and I have a small obsession with Moscato (D’asti Il Conte) and we are always bringing some to our girl nights. This would be a great way to carry two bottles without them clanking together!

    Fabulous!

    Thanks,

  4. I love this idea…perfect for carrying champagne to new year’s parties. Your daughter is too cute!

  5. FYI I’m making one of these right now (with a red wine bottle that says “Mommy” and a silver baby bottle that says “Baby”) and the thickness was way too thick for me, almost cut all the way through my cutting mat – so test it first!!!

  6. I usually don’t like wine bottle covers/bags, but the double tote makes it a more modern, fresh idea. Thanks for the tutorial!

  7. Ok, so I’m kinda new to the silhouette and been trying things out. I LOVE this wine bag you made. Can you give more details on how you created the wine bottles with the wording on them in the silhouette program? Thanks.
