    Who wouldn't love these nautically themed bags made of Dacron Sailcloth? Classic white background, with a colorful fun design of your choosing! Three strand nylon rope tied into grommets at the top form the handle. Going to extra effort, we cut a round bottom; no funky corners to deal with. We believe this gives the bag a better structure, and it will stand on it's own. Unfortunately, we can't send the wine, but, whatever you provide will be well received in this cute bag! Choose the design first: Whale, Starfish, Anchor, Sailboat, Ships Wheel or Skull and Crossbones. Then color options will appear in the drop down menu: Blue, Green, Black or Red pattern on white background. Made in the USA on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, by hand in our shop. Dimensions: 13.5 inches tall by 5 inch diameter circle.

    Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon
    Made by Wm Smith and Sons. This is a good quality palm perfect for occasional use. The adjustable strap means the hand sewing can be shared by ship mates! The metal piece is called the eye and has indentations to accept the head of the needle as you push it through the cloth. The hole on the right side of the picture is for your thumb, and the eye sits on the pad of your hand (below your thumb). You will find it to be a big help to push the needle through the sailcloth and canvas. Choose right or left hand. (If you are right handed, you would use a right hand palm.)
