Sweater Sleeve Wine Bags

There’s nothing like gifting a nice bottle of wine!  For this past Christmas I made a couple of wine-bottle gift bags from sweater sleeves.  I’ve seen wine-bottle sweaters in a slew of catalogues, and it’s such an easy and cute craft project!

Here is a very simple pictorial tutorial. The only thing I would add is that sometimes I had to slim down my sweater sleeves, but that was mostly because I was using very large men’s cable-knit sweaters.  Also – for the first bag I basted the felt circle base by hand-sewing, and then machine sewed it in place.  This was mostly just because I’m not very used to sewing tight circles and there’s a lot of bulk.  However, I didn’t feel the need to hand-baste again after making my first.
