Sewing machine and thread
1. Use the Adjustable Three-position Rotary Cutter to trim two outer fabric pieces and two lining fabric pieces to 16” x 7”. Using the rotary cutter in the ergonomic position, where the handle is slightly off center, allows you to clearly see your cutting line.
2. Pin the outer pieces of the bag together with the right sides of the fabric facing each other. Sew along the two long edges and bottom short edge. Repeat with the lining fabric pieces, but leave a 4” hole unsewn in the bottom short edge.
3. Use the 8” Amplify® Fabric Shears to carefully trim away the seam allowance.
4. Turn the outer bag to the right side and leave the bag lining inside out. Insert the outer bag into the lining. The right side of the outer bag should be facing the right side of the bag lining. Pin around the perimeter of the top opening edge and sew.
5. Pull the outer bag out through the hole you left in the bottom edge of the lining.
6. Sew the hole in the bottom edge of the lining closed. Push the lining down inside the outer bag and push out the corners with your fingers.
7. Insert the wine bottle and tie closed with a length of ribbon.
