Bottle Gift Bag

Posted by  ·  September 22, 2008  ·  Last Updated: May 23, 2016

Here is a quick festive holiday gift bag for a bottle

How to make a Bottle Gift Bag

  • Cut two pieces of felt 6 X 16 1/2 inches (you can make it shorter but I wanted it long enough to cover my bottle stoppers
  • One piece of fur trim 17″ long

Stitch fur to front of one piece of felt. It was easier if I stitched in the same direction (fur laying down) down on both sides.

Stitch the two pieces of felt right sides together, leaving the top open

Sew across bottom corner 1 inch from the edge

Repeat on other side

Turn right side out. Tie with a black ribbon.  I think I might have fastened ribbon with a belt buckle if I had had one. I also wanted to put some silver jingle bells on the ends of the ribbon. I am still considering adding the felt fur along the top of the bag.

Ho Ho Ho!

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you just could do with a few % to pressure the message home a little bit, however other than that, that is wonderful blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.

    That is fantastic! A bunch of these lined up would be so great on a buffet as decorations, too!
