Mother’s Day is coming up and today I’m making burlap Mother’s Day wine totes. It’s been an especially rough year for moms across the globe and I believe they all deserve a little relaxation and a huge heartfelt thank you. Enter: the gift of wine. Why? Because kids.
My mom’s kids are all adults and out of the nest now, but she’s counted out the weeks of living in the pandemic with me over supportive emails and made countless masks for everyone around her. I’m definitely making a wine tote to fill for her. By the way, she’s optimized (she’s an engineer so I really do mean optimized!) her mask design over the months and they’re awesome. More on that to come! Thanks, mom!
Anyways, back to crafting! I’m using HTV with blank burlap wine totes. I use my heat press to bond the HTV to the burlap. The heat press is crucial here due to the coarse texture in the burlap. Home clothing irons can’t get enough pressure to get a full bond, so I highly recommend a heat press for anyone making wine totes. I also use a pressing pillow to work around the seams.
I’m testing a few new colors, a cabernet sauvignon and a rose. I think the cab sav has better contrast, but the rose is very cute! The “Happy Mother’s Day!” text is available in cabernet sauvignon, rose, house red, and house white.
Here’s the finished product! You can find these Mother’s Day Wine Totes, with color variations, in the Etsy shop here.
Happy early Mother’s Day to the mom’s out there!
