I started making these wine bags when BYOB restaurants started popping up near my girlfriends house in Baltimore. I mean, if you are going to get all gussied up to go out, you might as well look classy while your drinking. Nothing says style like walking into eat with a crumbled paper bag shoved under your arm.
Oh… and don’t get me started on those crappy string straps on the store bought wine bags. Nothing like sliding your bottle into a bag and having it crash all over the floor. What a mess!
Customers have also clued me into other uses. Wine, booze, olive oil, smanshy tonic and other juices all fit in these bags. Most recently, a customer told me she put roll up cutting mats, spatulas, and other kitchen utensils. Ingenious!
Completely lined, they slip right on your wrist for easy carrying! At $10, what a great way to dress up that bottle!
