    Is this sentence correct:

    1-I filled the clothes into the bag.

    instead of:
    I put the clothes in the bag.
    I filled the bag with the clothes.

    Is this sentence correct:
    2-I filled the wine into the bottle.

    Re: fill?

    1. 'I filled the bag with (the) clothes.' (Use the if you've already referred to some clothes.)

    2. 'I filled the bottle with wine.'
