‘White Christmas’ – altered canvas wine bag

Blank canvas wine bags are ideal for screen printing, monograms, embroidery, you can paint your own designs on them or personalise them in any other crafty way you can think of. They are made of high quality fabrics and ideal for designing your own totes for your own wines, wine shop or winery or offer them in your gift bag section. And what better occasion than Christmas to share the gift of beautifully packed wine?

‘White Christmas’ Wine Bag is Mona Leonard’s take on the theme.

I needed the perfect bag for my friend’s Christmas gift and I only just purchased my heat press so this is what inspired me to do this wine bag… I added a fun saying and a couple of Christmas embellishments and… the rest is history…

Mona used for her project:
Canvas Corp rustic canvas wine tote with tie

Canvas Corp 12×12 printed canvas sheet Jolly Christmas
Canvas Corp Canvas remnants
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Guilded Gold
Thread and needle
Silhouette/ vinyl htv
Heat Press , Markers
Scissors, Sewing machine

I started my project by measuring the rim of my bag which was close to 10 inches, took some canvas remnants and cut it 3″x18 ” to make a frill around my bag. I then flipped my bag inside out pinned my strip on canvas around the edge of my bag making little fold every few inches. I sewed it in place and flipped the bag back right side up.

I folded the ruffle back down and cut off the string that attaches the bag off with a pair of scissors.

I then printed the quote I wanted using my silhouette and some vinyl.
Once everything was cut out, I heat pressed it into place.

I found a wooden tag in my stash so I decided to spray it using my Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist Guilded Gold.
Once the spray was dry, I used a old stamp and some red ink to stamp my tag.

This is where I took my Jolly Christmas 12×12 printed canvas and cut out the little Christmas lights from it using my scissors.

I then took my Spectrum Noire Markers to color them in. Once they were dry, I placed the little lights where I wanted them and used some fabric glue to adhere them into place. To finish off my bag, I took some white thread and a needle and stitched the tag onto the bag. Then I used red tassel trim to use as my tie.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
