Here is another idea for Holiday gift giving. Around our house I spend my days in my sewing/quilting studio and DH takes over his area making fabulous wines. The varieties seem endless but our faves are cherry, cranberry, apple, rhubarb, peach, beet (yes, I said ‘beet’!) and various combos of the above!!! Quilting and wine…..a marvelous pairing!!! So, when it comes to giving we each are able to put in our part……….thus we are into wine totes of different styles…………..
The pattern I used may be found here. It seems to fit several styles of bottles well and can be made with the “cut-out” handle or with the ties (my modification).
The other idea I needed a fabric solution for was the gift cards I had purchased, so I merely made fabric “envelopes”……..didn’t really put a closure on them other than the flap (which I ironed down well to give a crease but could have the crease stitched close to the edge). Just 2 fabric pieces, right sides together, stitched, turned and edges topstitched ……….very simple!!!!!!
The next few days will see very little of me at the machines……….more at the piano!
Til next time………Thank you so very much for taking your precious moments to stop by for a visit…..I truly cherish your friendship and consider myself very blessed!
