First of all to my upcycle for today...
Another bag! This time for taking wine to a friend's house for dinner - or even to give a bottle as a gift!
I used a pair of white kids trousers (I know, white is not the best colour for kids) - and these no longer fit my girls, and have stains on that just won't wash out - so definitely good for upcycling!
First I cut the legs from the trousers - and drew 2 circles on the remaining parts to cut for the base of the bags. (this is to make 2 bags the same)
So for each bag, pin the circle to the cut part of the trouser leg..
And stitch into place (right sides together of course)
Using a seam ripper, make a small hole in the seam near what is now the top of your bag - restitch on either side so the rest of the stitching doesn't unravel..
Then fold the end in and stitch to form the casing for the little drawstring.
Then I decided to add a little bling, with a set of discarded beads, just pinned and stitched into place..
And Voila!! A wine bottle gift bag!
Another quick and easy 15 min project..
All wrapped up and ready to go!
