Repurposed jeans wine bag…upcycling denim
Wow! I am excited to be here today. Jen asked me to share one of my favorite projects with you.
I am Kelly from My Soulful Home. Jen and I are on bHome together. I’ve gotten to know Jen over the last year. She is a great person & so talented, but you already know that!
Re-purposing is one of my favorite ways to be creative. This easy & practical re-purpose project is a favorite in that category.
I bet you have old jeans, can sew a short seam & that you give a hostess gift once in a while. So this project is perfect for you!
Repurposed jeans wine Bag Tutorial
With a pile of denim my girls out grew in my arms, I was struck with an idea…
Those pant legs could be wine gift bags!
Now since this was about 10 am, I want you to know I was not drinking wine, or even thinking about drinking wine.
Just thinking out of the box ~ ( not boxed wine either! )
Out of the pile came a few pairs of skinnys. The best style for my wine bag repurpose.
You want the openings to be about 6 inches wide. You can always make the leg thinner if you don’t have skinny jeans on hand.
The average wine bottle is 13 inches tall, so cut the pant leg at 15 inches. This will give you a one inch seam allowance and a bit extra at the top.
Speaking of the top, use the bottom of the jean as the top, so you only need to sew one very short seam.
You can round out the bottom if you want by sewing the edges like this, but it isn’t even really necessary.
Sew the seam, turn the bag right side out.
Slip in your gift bottle of wine & tie on some ribbon, flowers, a seasonal do-dad, maybe & a tag.
My ribbons are burlap, twine and torn strips of denim & linen. Flowers are from the dollar bin at Michael’s.
What would you think if I showed up at your house for a party with one of these for you?
Thanks so much for inviting me over Jen!
Would love to have you all over to My Soulful Home for a visit. Come on by for more heart, mind & soul of the home.
