Wine Tote Project
Supple winter white upholstery fabric makes up the exterior body of wine tote.
I embroidered a numbered pocket for the front.
I'm making three more wine totes No. 1,3,5, for a shop display.
The interior is a black and white cotton.
The wine bottle bottomless pockets are padded--constructed with layers of black and white printed cotton, two layers of polar fleece, and black cotton printed cotton.
Padded pockets keep the bottles from clanging together.

I had some gray micro suede fabric leftover from Mark's shopping tote project, and scrap pieces left over from the wine tote bags--to make this purse I call "Tuxedo Purse." The colors are crisp, and the fabrics are well matched in thickness and softness.
The purse would have been "enough" as pieced strips, then I had to go all Audrey Hepburn and put a bow on it. I couldn't help myself.
I padded up the lining, added a magnetic silver snap, and a single deep pocket.
I like the function of long straps. I considered fabric loops left and right, with silver "D" rings and shorter fabric handles. Maybe the next purse, eh?
