FREE (!!) Wine Totes Tutorial

So what could possibly be more fun than one cute tote to carry your favorite wine? Two complementary totes made from the same free pattern! So just in time for the Spring wine festival season, we’re sharing this awesome free pattern/tutorial which makes not one, but two, super fun and useful wine totes.

(Yeah, so we realized AFTER the photoshoot in Ali’s beautiful backyard that we probably should have waited to put the ice in our glasses. We swear that the bottle hadn’t been chilled… LOL)

When we first came up with the idea of releasing entire collections of sewing patterns, we also immediately knew that we wanted to offer free patterns with each collection. And in deference to W.O.W.’s humble beginnings, we wanted this first free pattern to pay homage to our love of wine. Wouldn’t these make the perfect host or hostess gift for the wine lover in your life?

Wine Totes with Bottles

These totes feature a padded divider so you can safely carry two wine bottles or one bottle and other supplies (anyone besides us obsessed with stemless plastic wine glasses for summer?). The totes also have two outside pockets for a wine opener or other small items, and measure approximately 12” x 10” x 5” each.

All of the construction seams are French seams, so you can really impress yourself and anyone you gift one of these totes to with the professional finish they provide. The pattern includes step-by-step instructions for each French seam, so we feel confident that even a beginner sewer can follow them.

And here’s a helpful hint… if you’ve never done a French seam before (ahem, Courtney, ahem), it will seem really weird and counter-intuitive, but if you just trust the process, they will give you an amazing finished product.

This pattern makes two complementary totes. So you buy less than a yard of two different fabrics, cut the same pieces out of both fabrics, but sew them up so that each tote features the opposite fabrics. Fun!

You will also need two 9”x7” pieces of batting or Pellon Fusible Fleece and four 7” strips of sew-on Velcro. That’s it! The PDF pattern has 9 pages and 50 color photos to help you every step of the way.

We really hope you enjoy our first free pattern. And as usual, please send us any questions or comments, and especially send us any pictures of your finished Wine Totes, as we would love to share them! In the meantime, raise your glass and keep on sewing!
