Jute Wine Bottle Sleeve by Tara Schreyer


SKILL LEVEL: Easy

What's one thing that everyone loves to give (and receive) as a hostess gift? Wine, of course! Make your gift special by hand-making a beautifully natural and elegant sleeve that can be embellished as desired for the occasion. Simple is beautiful!!

The finished sleeve measures 11" (28 cm) in circumference and 7.5" (19 cm) in height and will fit most regularly shaped wine bottles.

The pattern calls for approximately 164 feet of 2.00 mm jute twine. Jute twine can be purchased at your local dollar store (as I did) but you can also find it in the jewelry making section of your craft store. I've even seen it in some pretty amazing colors so you can have a lot of fun with this project!

Please note: There are no instructions or suggestions provided in the written pattern for possible embellishments. The pictures shown are supplied to serve as inspiration but the possibilities are endless!!!

sneak peek.

My husband bought me a new thermos, soooo of course I had to crochet a thermos cozy. I seriously can't even stop myself! Originally I had no plans of writing up a pattern, but once the cozy was completed, and I liked how it turned out, I wanted to share. Plus, I figured that if I wanted a cozy for my thermos then someone else might want one too.

 
The crochet pattern for this cozy should be ready sometime this week.
