Raise your hand if you appreciate a well-dressed man. Raise your other hand if you appreciate a well-dressed bottle of wine.
Both hands in the air?
Then this project is for you!
Most thrift stores have an abundance of men’s dress shirts and neckties and a recent trip to a nearby secondhand shop proved this fact to be true.
To make this cute wine gift bag, all you need are the sleeves. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.
First, lay down the bottle of wine on the sleeve to determine where to cut.
Then all you need is a needle and thread (or a sewing machine– but seriously, it only takes 5 minutes to do it by hand). First, turn the sleeve inside out. I like to fold over one corner of the wide end of the sleeve so that the bag isn’t quite as slouchy- but that’s a personal choice. Then, simply baste stitch across the bottom of the sleeve.
After you finish stitching, turn the sleeve back to right-side-out and slip a bottle of wine into your cute bag.
Now, the necktie.
Keep those scissors handy…all you need is the skinny end of the tie.
Then, you just tie it around your wine bottle neck in standard Windsor knot fashion. Use the folded over cuff as your collar and voilà- a dashing bottle of wine!
How natty is that? And undressing it is even more enjoyable.
