PB + J Monday...Tuesday

Some bloggers decided to take a break from the blogging world yesterday in respect for the innocent victims of the shooting in Connecticut.  I thought I would too and so my PB+J Monday post is a PB+J Tuesday post this week.

I seem to be in a sewing mood lately!  I recently came across this delightful idea for unique and fun ways to gift bottles of wine.   

Repurposed (recycled) sweater sleeves and dress-shirt sleeves!  I love it!  And just like furoshiki the possibilities are endless!

Here is a great little tutorial on how to make a wine bag from a sweater sleeve.  I love the cozy, festive feel of the striped sleeve and the addition of the trim.  It’s so simple and yet so great!  Who wouldn't be impressed when they see you coming to their party carrying this!

Here is another tutorial that shows a more stable bottom to the bag using an old sweater or pair of pants (the purple bag on the table).

And here is another more sophisticated idea.  Great for the Christmas office party!  I love the idea of adding cufflinks to finish it off.  I can’t seem to find where this picture came from.  I think it originated on Etsy though.

And here's a few more to finish this post off and maybe get your creative juices flowing too.

I love the pom poms on this one!

  1. What a great idea! I could use this for sure.
