Wino Wednesday

I LOVE wine, who is with me?  Yesterday I posted how to make a pillow from a dress shirt, today I am going to reuse the sleeves.  Have you ever been caught drinking wine from a paper bag?  Me neither but if I am going to go that route I think I will class it up a little bit with these shirt sleeve wine bags.  But in all seriousness, I wouldn’t mind getting a bottle of wine in a reusable bag such as these.  Who am I kidding if you are giving out wine I am taking it in any form.

Should you have an extra shirt that you don’t need the sleeves for try making one of these wine bottle covers.

Step 1.  With a wine bottle, full or empty your choice, measure the length of the desired wine bag.  Yes that’s right, use a wine bottle as a measuring device.  Forget the measure twice cut once rule just this one time.

Step 2.  Cut off the sleeves so that the bottle will fit.

Step 4.  Pin the edge you just cut

Step 5.  Sew the edge closed.

Step 6.  Put the bottle in the bag, close up the buttons.  You could make it fancy by tying a ribbon.
