At some point in our lives we need to take a bottle or two of something somewhere. Maybe for a Thanksgiving or Festive dinner, or just out on a fancy picnic. And it is ideal if we have a tote bag that is made for the purpose!

This bag is the answer! It takes two standard-sized bottles and there is a little ease for larger ones. There is a zipper pocket in the front for a corkscrew and a built-in divider in the lining to stop the bottles from chinking together. Strong handles mean there won’t be any accidents.

Makes the ideal hostess or housewarming gift. Sew it in a festive or seasonal fabric and it’s perfect for gifting a couple of bottles too.

The pattern features:-

  • A zipper pocket on the front,
  • A padded divider in the lining,
  • A secure metal stud closure,
  • Leather or vegan leather detailing on the strong webbing handles,
  • Capacity for two bottles.
