Quick-sew Hostess Gift

Clever Charleycarla macklinComment

Are you in shock that the holidays are here?!  They caught me by surprise, too, but was able to find a little time to whip up two new Wine Jackets to present as hostess gifts at some upcoming holiday parties.  Luckily these Wine Jackets accommodate all standard red, white, and champagne wine bottle sizes...I'm not yet sure what libation I am gifting to whom.  

I used the Clever Charley Wine Jacket Sewing Kit to make these two wine jackets. The Kit contains the pattern, instructions and all notions to complete one wine jacket. Fabric is not included in the Kit but if you are like me it's easy to find some fun quilting weight fat quarters in the stash to  make these Jackets. I made one modification to the Kit: instead of using the chalk fabric included for the tags I decided to use some green wool felt.  Using felt allowed me to practice my hand and machine embroidery skills, both of which need more attention!


These Wine Jackets take less than an hour to sew and are such a great way to dress up gifts.  Use coupon code FESTIVE2015 for 20% off Wine Jackets and other Clever Charlotte and Clever Charley products now through December 24th.  Cheers!
