Don’t Get Caught Holding the (Wine) Bag This Year

I love giving wine as a gift – hostess gift, thank you gift, that back-up “person who gives you something, but you didn’t remember them” gift – so I’m always looking for a great way to present the wine. As a quilter, wine bags are a good choice, but, let’s face it, they are a bit 90s. And this is 2017. So how about something different?

That’s why I love these new wine wraps just added to my Etsy store. Combine them with the snack mat trend and you have a really unique presentation that’s modern and fun!

There’s 3 versions currently available. Each comes with a “Santa’s Little Helper” quilted wrap for a bottle of wine (fits most straight-sided wine bottles) which features a sewn-in, non-slip backing —

The snack mat quotes differ from set to set, though.

For those who like to schedule their holiday imbibing, try the “It’s 5 o’clock at the North Pole” set

Or maybe you are an equal opportunity wine drinker. Then the “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas but if the White is out I’ll drink the Red” set is for you.

And the “The Weather Outside is Frightful, but the Wine is so Delightful” set is perfect for those seeking a just a little warmth on blustery winter days.

All 3 are now available in my Etsy store – with FREE SHIPPING!

Happy Halloween 2017! Thought I’d share the scariest thing I’ve ever sewn today…

She was an attempt to create a life-sized Cindy Lou Who doll, but – while my quilting skills are pretty good – my doll-making skills are definitely not up to par! I’ve been meaning to create yarn hair for her for months. In the meantime, she’s been moved around our home 3 or 4 times because my husband keeps coming across her and getting freaked out. 😀
