Note from Team NZP

Sewing Secret Revealed! To make one Wine Tote appear to be two completely different totes, sew two outer pieces together using two different fabrics!  (And, sew two inner pieces together using two different fabrics). We also call this our Color Blocked Wine Tote!

  • Pin or Wonder Clip inner fabrics, right sides together, at top narrow edge (one each of two different fabrics).
  • Pin or Wonder Clip outer fabrics, right sides together, at top narrow edge (one each of two different fabrics).

Or, to make a traditional Wine Tote, with coordinating outer fabric (and coordinating inner fabric), place like fabrics right sides together – just like with did in our Halloween Wine Tote Sewing Tutorial.

Create Lower Gussets

  • Stitch along marked lines – using a Stilletto/Awl to assist feeding seams under presser foot.

Note from Team NZP

Using an Open Toe Presser Foot makes it easy to stitch directly on the marked line!

  • Optional: Create curved lower gusset seams by tracing a salad plate, marking curves at previously stitched lines, as shown.
