Fabric Requirements: Outer fabric: 2 rectangles, 7” x 18” (1 fat quarter) Lining fabric: 2 rectangles, 8” x 19” (1 fat quarter) Batting: 2 rectangles, 8” x 19” Bias Binding: 12” x 12” square Fold each rectangle in half lengthwise and mark the center; open flat. Lay one lining and one outer piece right sides together, matching lengthwise centers and centering the outer piece between the top and bottom of the lining piece. Pin these pieces together. Repeat with other rectangle pair. Lay the wine bag template on top of one of the rectangle pairs (with the outer piece on top), matching center lines and positioning the top of the template about 1/8” below the top of the outer fabric rectangle. Trace the handle oval on the wrong side of the outer fabric piece. Repeat with the other rectangle pair. Do not trace the top of the handle at this point. Repeat this tracing on the batting pieces, with the top of the template about ½” – ¾” from the top. Cut out the oval on the batting pieces along the traced line. Sew the pin-­‐basted rectangles together on the traced oval handle line. Cut out the inside of the oval leaving a ¼” seam allowance. Clip the inside curves, remove pins.

With the outer side on the top, lay a piece of batting on top and align the ovals. Reach through the hole and grab the lining fabric from the other side and pull it through the hole. You will need to gently tug at it and pull it into shape so that it lies flat. You can then iron with steam to get both sides to lay flat. Repeat for the other rectangle pair. With the outer side up, top stitch around the oval handle about 1/8” from the edge. Quilt each piece as desired. After quilting, lay the oval handle template on each rectangle, matching the holes, and trace the top of the handle. Cut each piece along the traced handle line. Square up each piece to the following measurements: 16” 6-­‐1/2” wide, 16” long from the side of the cut handle to the bottom. 6-­‐1/2” Before stitching the pieces together it is recommended that you zigzag or serge the side and bottom edges of each piece. This will give a finished edge and prevent raveling. Put the two rectangles right sides together, matching the ovals and side and bottom edges, and sew the sides and bottom using a ¼” seam allowance. Start and stop each seam by backstitching a few stitches. Once this is sewn you will create the box bottom. To create the box bottom, trace a 1-­‐1/2” square at both corners of the bottom. Cut out along the traced line through all layers of fabric. Pinch the side and bottom seams together, “nesting” the seams by pushing the seam allowance of the side seam one way and the bottom seam the other way. Sew with a ¼” seam, backstitching a few stitches at the beginning and end to reinforce the seams. Finish the edge with a zigzag stitch. Repeat for the other side. Turn piece right side out. Attach bias binding to top of handle using your favorite method. Pattern Courtesy of Old Town Quilt Shop l 165A W. Clark Ave, Orcutt, CA l (805) 938-­‐5870 2 Center Line
