Liberty Quilt Shop Wine Bag
18"x22" piece (fat quarter) of print A for bag body
18"x22" piece (fat quarter) of print B for bag lining
3" x width of fabric of print B for tie
18"x22" interfacing (the instructions call for non fusible, but I like fusible)
The finished bag will be 3.75"x3.75"x12.5"
Cutting and assembly instructions
From print A, cut 2- 9x15.5" bag body rectangles
From print B, cut 2- 9x15.5" bag lining rectangles and 1- 2"x width of fabric for tie
From interfacing, cut 2- 9"x15.5" rectangles

|Fabric and interfacing rectangles... did I mention that this is my first project using the fabulous Fandango fabric I bought in August?!|
1. Baste or iron interfacing rectangles to wrong side of bag body (print A).
2. Cut a 2" square from each bottom corner of interfaced bag body rectangles and lining rectangles.
3. Fold the 2" width of print B in half lengthwise, wrong sides together and iron. Open up and press long edges to center fold line, then refold in half again. Stitch along the long edge. The strip will be about 1/2" wide.
4. Sew center of tie to one of the bag body rectangles 3" from the top edge and equal distance from each side.
5. Join bag body rectangles along side and bottom edges to make bag body, being careful not to catch tie ends in stitching. Repeat with lining rectangles, but leave a 4" opening along one side.

6. To box bottom corners, match each side seam of bag body with the bottom seam; stitch across resulting straight edge. Turn bag body right side out. Repeat with lining rectangles, but do not turn right side out.

|Amy's adorable fabric card. Do you recognize the 2" squares that we cut out of the bag body and lining to box the corners?|
