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?
