“Sharp-Dressed” Wine Gift Bags from Upcycled Clothing

“Sharp-Dressed” Wine Gift Bags from Upcycled Clothing

Raise your hand if you appreciate a sharp-dressed man. Raise your other hand if you appreciate a sharp-dressed bottle of wine.

Both hands in the air? Then this project is for you!

Most thrift stores have an abundance of secondhand clothing, including PLENTY of dress shirts in the men’s department.

Just a few to choose from…

…and a few ties!

To make these handsome wine gift bags, all you need are the sleeves- but save the rest of the shirt for other upcycled clothing craft projects! This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.

How to Make Wine Gift Bags

First, lay down the bottle of wine on the sleeve to determine where to cut. You want to make sure that the neck of the bottle will show above the cuff once it’s over, like a collar.

Just the sleeve, please…

Ready to cut…

Cut along the bottom of your bottle (middle of sleeve) allowing a half inch allowance for a seam.

Now we’re ready to make this into a gift bag.

Then all you need is a needle and thread to make these wine gift bags (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.

I should really iron this first…

Oh well, just ignore the wrinkles…

Then, just use straight, small stitches (baste) to close what will become the bottom of your wine gift bags.

Low-sew is my favorite kind of sewing…

After you finish stitching, turn the sleeve back to right-side-out. Give it a quick ironing (if needed) and slip a bottle of wine into your cute bag.

Did someone say…casual Friday?

Now, the necktie.

Keep those scissors handy…all you need is the skinny end of the tie. Again, save the fatter end for another project!!

Wait ’til you see this…

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!

I mean, come on now- HOW CUTE IS THAT?

I seriously can’t stop making these DIY wine gift bags from upcycled thrift store clothing. They’are just so dang cute and easy to make.

In. LOVE…

How natty is that? And undressing it is even more enjoyable.

And these wine gift bags aren’t just for, well, wine. You could certainly do this for his favorite bottle of bourbon or other liquor- even large bottles of beer would work just fine!

  4. So how much of the tie did you cut off?

    • Hi, Corrie! I basically cut off the entire skinny end, up until the point it was gradually widening toward the fat end. Once I tied it and got it to be as perfectly cute as possible, I trimmed off the rest. Does that help?

  5. So cute! And clever! Great idea for parties. 🙂

    Found you on the Linky Party at Fit Foodie Runs.

  6. Incredibly brilliant!
