It was the last day of school on Friday, and I wanted to give one of my new friends something to thank her for several kindnesses. Since we are both a little weary about starting the summer, trying to keep our kids busy, and not go crazy in the process, I thought I would embellish it with a funny saying. You can put any saying you like. You can stencil the bag sideways also, with “Vino” in a fancy font, or a last name, “Thank You”, and so on… The possibilities are endless. It is a fun, and fast project and it really dresses up the wine gift. Wine bottles do vary in size so be sure to measure your bottle for height and width and add a 1/4 seam allowance. Go around the top of the bag with a straight stitch to prevent the burlap from fraying beyond the stitch. I used fabric paint, and a stencil I made with Silhouette stencil material. So keep calm, and stencil on!
