And a wine bag is not only an adorable or elegant way to present a gift of wine to
your hostess, but a wine bag that's quilted can also serve as protection (and even
insulation) for your wine bottle as it's being transported. And if you give your wine
bag a handle, it becomes a convenient tote. Plus, a wine bag that's reusable can be

silk, here are a couple of tips:

ahead of the other, try hand-basting the two layers together first - one row of
stitching on one side of the seam line and another row of stitching on the other
side of the seam line, then machine sew in between the rows of basting.
And if you're making your wine bag from a velvet or napped fabric, to keep from
crushing the fabric's pile when you press it, try placing a terrycloth towel
underneath it (if you don't have a velvet board). Place the velvet fabric face down
on the towel and lightly press.
