Wine, Anyone?

I recently made a gift bag for a bottle of wine and discovered a great way to make a rounded bottom without having to sew on a circle of fabric.


After sewing a rectangle piece of fabric into a tube, I hemmed the bottom and then just gathered it by hand and voila...a rounded bottom. Easy peasy!

That is a terrific idea! Aren't the wine gift bags the best?

See I keep telling you how *creative* you are...and you did it again! Cute idea! When does Nick start back at school? I know he has been there most of the summer already...but school, how about those classes? Have a good week!

Great way to package a nice bottle of wine! I've enjoyed seeing your DJ triangles as well. You are really cranking them out ;-)

What a great idea....thanks for sharing it. I'll have to file that one away for future use. I'm not too good at perfectly round circles...I would have glued the bottom on...LOL

Smiles,

Very clever! Now I'll have to see if I can remember it when I need it.
