A Sweater for the Wine

What to do with old cotton sweaters which have lost their shape?  I put this one in my fabric stash with plans to try it out as filling for hotpads

Instead, one night in a fit of desperation before we left for a soiree with hostess wine in hand, I cut off the sweater arm, stitched a canvas circle in the cut end, et voila, wine bag!

My mother (the babysitter that evening) held the bag and its wine for me so I could snap a photo and run out the door. 

Other ideas for old cotton sweaters?


  1. That is very interesting. I will try that later. Thanks for the tips.

  2. You are brilliant! I love this idea.

  3. You are beyond clever. Love this idea!


I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
