Anytime I want to take wine as a hostess gift it seems I never have a bag handy. So I thought I would come up with something pretty and easy to make. Well I think I hit mark on pretty (hope you agree), may have missed a bit on the easy part. After much thought I wound up making the lower half of the wine bottle bag in-the-hoop and then stitched the band on manually. In the end it is fairly easy, just takes a bit longer than I really wanted. The trick is to make a few at the same time to have on hand when needed – the more you make the faster you get. Anyway, the wine bottle bag is all finished up and in my Etsy store.
