Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.
This manual shows you how to make a bottle bag sleeve designed to fit a 1L bottle. The bottle bag is one of our most popular products and we designed the bag to utilise small offcuts of fabric that would usually be deemed as scrap. The guide is geared to beginners looking to produce their first usable product on a domestic sewing machine. The guide covers the sewing basics from drafting your own pattern to lining a bag and creating a cord channel. The instructions will guide participants through the entire process with useful techniques and tips that can be applied to all kinds of sewing projects.
