Here’s a nice collection of bags, cozies & totes to make for carrying and presenting bottles of wine (they’d make great hostess gifts too). A few are quite elegant while others are more casual…some sewing is required but there are a couple no-sew versions as well. I’ve also added a few different tutorials at the bottom for making wine charms, a DIY bottle stopper tutorial and a couple free labels to print off. Enjoy!
Quilted Tote: Nice reusable tote that features handles for easy carrying and padded with two layers of batting.
Gift Bags: Reversible drawstring bags using pretty fabrics and silky cording. Easy enough for beginner sewers.
Organza/Lacey Bag: Make an elegant bag with light, sheer fabric and wire edged ribbon for the handles.
Double Bag Tutorial: Here’s a neat design that will hold two bottles and has wood dowels for handles. Free pdf pattern download.
Paper Bag: Made with cardstock, grommets are inserted on all four sides of the bag (top & bottom) and then strung with ribbon for easy & decorative toting.
Denim Cutoffs: Here’s another project using an old pair of jeans, this one with a fabric handle for easy toting.
Pallet Wine Rack: A wood pallet is disassembled then made into a simple rustic rack to hold wine bottles, finished with polyurethane.
Sleek 6-Bottle Rack: So nice! Store and showcase your favorite bottles of wine with this compact rack made with wood.
PVC Pipe Storage: The design is completely flexible so it can be made to fit inside any shelf or cabinet.
DIY Charms, Stoppers & Labels
DIY Stoppers: Made with drawer pulls or lamp finials and matching threaded bolts (from most hardware or decorating stores), corks, strong glue, a drill, a pencil or marker, a C-clamp, and a hacksaw.
Charming Twist: Made with 20 gauge wire, each end is twisted into a spiral for a pretty effect. Clasps around the stem of the glass.
Wineglass Charms: Scraps of paper or fabric are inserted into a frame pendant, earring-hoop wires are threaded through the top for hanging.
