Yes, I have used the search tool and found one tute that I had much trouble understanding.  I want to make a bunch-o-bags to give to a wine maker for a gift.  I am horrid at making button holes for drawstrings and wanted a stand alone type-o-sack.  I am using contrasting fabric and want to make it lined.  I tried one in a jordy-style, but wasn't pleased with it.  Any ideas?

Wine bags are typically long and narrow. I would suggest not lining it, b/c people are seldome to look inside a wine bag. But if you must line it, instead of doing a Jordy style square bottom, consider just rounding the corners and sewing flat. You'll have to adjust your measurements to account for the depth, but sometimes when working with small or narrow bags, it becomes a real chore to do square corners.

If you want to impress people, don't line the bags, and include a removable neaprene wine bottle sleeve. I have no idea right this second where to buy neoprene or how much it costs, but I'm sure you can but it somewhere and it would keep re-chilled bottles cool!

Instead of button holes, I also suggest grommets. They'd be way easier to install, and you can use a wide variety of notions-by-the-foot as handles.

Good luck and post the results!
