Flannel Shirt Wine Bottle Bags

I’m getting awfully good at hacking up ties and have now moved on to shirts!  Making decorative tree bags from a collection of my hole-ridden, paint-stained, and horrid flannel shirts seemed obvious.  See photo below, and for the ‘how-to’ see the Holiday Hostess Video on my YouTube Channel.

Being a person who doesn’t like to waste, I also repurposed the shirt sleeves into wine bottle bags to give as holiday gifts (with wine in them of course).

This project is super easy.  You’ll need:

Flannel shirts and a sewing machine although you could stitch them by hand.

  1. Cut the sleeve at about 13″ from the cuff so you have a tube.
  2. Turn the cut sleeve inside out.
  3. Sew up the bottom of the sleeve (not the cuff end).
  4. Turn right-side out.
  5. Insert wine and tie with a gift tag.

Enjoy and happy crafting!
