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