The inspiration for this came from a white elephant gift exchange where my theme was 'booze'. Simple enough...lots of less-than-$10 bottles of wine and alcohol, right? So I headed to a local liquor store to see what I could come up with. A friend suggested a bottle of mixer with some shooters, so it was. But I needed something more, something that would pull this gift together...and so the idea for the Imbibe-On-the-Go bag was born. That night, I designed and sewed it out of the only gender-neutral fabric I had in my small stash (b/c I didn't know who would end up with it).
|This bag has room for a bottle of mix and four shooters!|
|Packed and ready to go.|
|Just the bag.|
|I sewed the pockets before adding the lining for a clean-looking interior.|
You'd never know from looking at it, but I totally sewed the lining on wrong so it wouldn't turn itself right side out. It was already 11:30pm and the white elephant was the next day at work! Argh! Hello, seam ripper. Procrastination will be the death of me!
Oh, and the 22-year-old recent college grad ended up with the Imbibe-on-the-Go bag (he stole it, so I feel good that it ended up in a loving home) :)
(by the way, just have to say it, this bag is not intended to be used while driving. Do not drink and drive.)
