I don't generally use patterns I just make it up as I go along so there are no measurments(I just eye balled a bottle of wine for the sizing)! I had some sage green fuzzy fabric left over from making a project last yr and as you can cut and leave raw edges without it fraying decided this would be ideal for the outside of the cover. I also had a fat qtr of fabric which had fruits of the forest on it along with bunches of grapes to use for the linning and decoration. Very appropriate I thought.
I used a leaf stamp that I had and stamped it out to make a template to cut out some vine leaves to applique on the outside.
You can see the finnished applique with embroidered vines and the linning material before I
did the final seam and inserted the base and attached the carry handles.
Not a very clear photo I'm afraid as it was a dismal day for taking pictures when I had to wrap it up to go in the post. I did stand a bottle of Australian Hardy's VR Chardonnay next to it for the photo shoot though!
