Wishing everyone a Happy Hanukkah!
These are wine bags and gift baskets that I made last year with some fabric I designed on Spoonflower. I couldn’t find the kind of Hanukkah fabric that I wanted so I made my own! And now it’s available to you, too!
I wrote up a tutorial for the tall wine bag but needed to test it out. I’ve done so and here it is.
Meanwhile here are a few more pictures from my tester bags. All of the fabrics are printed on Spoonflower’s basic cotton.
This one uses shape flex (Pellon SF101) as support for the fabric. The lining is plain white muslin.
This one uses fusible fleece as the stabilizer. I wasn’t thrilled by how it wrinkled a bit after fusing, but I think that was due to poor quality fleece. My preferred fleece is Thermolam, but I used something else in the case. Not sure what it was, but I won’t be using it again.
This is a slightly different style that I was trying out. No stabilizers, but it does have a round bottom. Lining is the coordinating striped fabric you can see.
And finally one more test. This was more of a basket style. I used some coordinating quilting cotton for the lining and lined with the meh fleece mention above.
Tomorrow I’ll post a walk through for making the tall ones.
