Hello Infarrantly Creative Friends!

My name is Stephanie Lynn from Under the Table and Dreaming and I am so excited to be a part of Beckie’s Pennywise Presents! I’d like to share a quick and incredibly easy hostess gift today.

No-Sew Felt Wine Wrap

Materials Needed:

Felt

Stitch Witchery

Pinking Shears {or regular scissors}

A Bottle of Wine, Champagne, etc. {Since this is a pennywise present, I’ve included a link below for a list of a few wines under $10}

Double over a single cut of felt {so the crease is at the bottom} and cut a piece measuring 6” x 24” tall {you may need to adjust the measurements as wine bottles do vary in size}. I used pinking shears to give the edges a little design.

Lay the bottle on top of the felt {creasing it at the bottom} and measure one inch up from the top – lightly mark a guideline. Sit the bottle right side up and place in the center of the felt; the top edge of the bottle resting on the guideline – trace around the bottom of the bottle. Lift up the top layer of felt and proceed to cut out the traced circle. {this only needs to be done on the top layer} It is pretty easy if you fold the top layer of felt in half and cut small slit into the center of the circle. Slide your scissors in the slit and continue cutting until the circle is complete. The next step is to seam the sides. This can be done by sewing or simply using stitch witchery. [Stitch Witchery is a polyamide fusible web that permanently bonds two layers of fabric together - and yes it works on felt too!] Cut two strips of the stitch witchery, one for each side. Place each strip in between the felt as close as you can to the outer edges of each side, leaving a one inch opening at the bottom crease. {as shown above} Lightly press with a steam iron set to the wool setting. Keep the iron moving at all times when placed on the felt, as if left in one spot it will melt the fibers. It only takes 30 seconds or so to fuse. Once the sides are together, seam the top in the same fashion. Depending upon the size of your actual bottle you may need to trim the top just a bit. Since the felt has a little give the bottle slides perfectly into the opening hole. Embellish as you please. I simply tied handmade ornaments around the neck of the bottle. The ornament tutorials can be found {here} and {here} – they are simply made from scraps} For this project to fit within Beckie’s Pennywise Present budget, here is a link to finding Red and White Wines Under $10 from The Kitchn! Thanks Beckie for having me! Happy Tuesday Everyone! ~ Enjoy!

 

Thanks Stephanie Lynn!   What a classy way to dress up a bottle of wine, champagne or sparkling grape juice :-) I love the added touch of hanging an ornament around the neck.   Pure class!

    Hi Beckie & Stephanie Lynn. This project turned out beautiful. The fabric color and the necklace/decoration is so elegant. Who would've thought. I can see this making a beautiful wedding, bon voyage, honeymoon gift and so many more. Thanks for sharing the tutorial with us.

    Very nice! At first I thought the hole was to slip over the neck of the bottle where it would stick up behind the bottle as a decorative part. Does that make sense? I guess you could do it either way! :) – Karen
