Make a Bottle Cozy


Are you looking for a last minute gift project? Brett from DesignSpongeOnline designed these easy-to-sew wine cozies. They are sewn using under ¼ of a yard of fabric, making them an ideal project to splurge on fancy-schmancy fabric, or to utilize your tag end stash scraps. Make one up as an alternative to a gift bag when presenting your pal with a bottle of wine or sparkling cider! As Cleopatra knew, everything looks more handsome when wrapped carefully in gorgeous textiles!
