Wine Bottle Bag Hostess Gifts

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving this weekend.  I was unable to spend it with my family, but I made the best of it. 

One of my instructors invited me to join his family for Thanksgiving dinner.  They were all so gracious and welcoming, I felt completely at ease.  And, they were all wonderful cooks and I ate waaaay too much.  I was allowed to take home some left-overs and ate them all weekend long.

I did not want to arrive empty handed, so I brought a couple of bottles of wine as hostess gifts.  Plain wine bottles are boring though so I took advantage of the temporarily free pattern that has been offered by Go To Patterns.  Eventually, I want to make the gift bags to be re-used each year.  But I am going to use up the paper I own first. I made two different bags for each of my bottles.

I think they turned out very pretty nice and they were super easy.  I did not make the contrasting pieced version because I wanted them to be more simple. 

The rest of the weekend I spent in my hotel room sewing and dancing to music.  Not the ideal holiday weekend, but nice all the same.
