It’s the last Friday before Christmas, friends! Are you finished shopping? I think I just about am; which is great, because I do NOT want to go out this weekend. Everyone will be out getting last minute gifts, and it’s just insane! Thank goodness for online shopping and Amazon, right?!

SONY DSCDo you have any holiday parties to attend this year? We have a few coming up (one being tonight!). I just love getting all dressed up since it seems we never get to anymore! Going to a party empty handed is just a no-go these days. It’s always nice to bring a little something with you for the host or hostess. Wine is always a welcomed gesture, and I’ve got the perfect little bag to pretty that bottle up with, too! And, the best part of this little gift; it’s NO-SEW. That’s right my fellow non-sewing friends, you can whip this up super quickly! Like, within minutes.

SONY DSCTo make your own no-sew monogrammed wine bag, you’ll need:

  • Your choice of fabric (A thicker fabric works best, such as fleece/felt or linen/dropcloth)
  • Letter stencils
  • Fabric or acrylic paint + paint sponge/brush
  • Hi-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Ribbon

First, cut your fabric to your desired size. I made mine 36×8 inches. The bag won’t fit those extra large wine bottles, but you could certainly make one that does! I used some leftover linen fabric from some curtains that I had to trim, and some extra fleece from another project. A dropcloth would work perfectly too, and you could make several bags out of one! Whatever fabric you choose, make sure it’s fairly thick and is double sided.

SONY DSCOnce your fabric is cut, fold in half. Make sure you fold the the fabric inside out, then glue down both sides of the fabric, about half an inch in. Leave the top open and unglued.

SONY DSCWhen the glue has cooled and dried, carefully turn the bag inside out. You will have a nice seam that looks like it was sewn; but no one will even notice it wasn’t!

SONY DSCPut a piece of cardboard or wax paper inside the bag to make sure the paint doesn’t leak through. Holding down a letter stencil firmly, gently sponge on the paint.

SONY DSCCarefully pull up the stencil. It needed something else besides the monogram, so I free handed a leafy design around the letter as well in gold, of course.

SONY DSCI am SO happy with how it came out!! I made another one out of fleece as well, which just looks so cozy around the wine bottle. If that’s possible. 🙂

SONY DSCOnce the paint is all dried, slide a wine bottle inside and tie her up with some pretty matching ribbon! I added a little greenery too, for extra flair. 😉

SONY DSCThese aren’t only for Christmas either, you could make a sparkly one for new years, or any holiday or special occasion!

SONY DSCMy brother and sister-in-law host a big annual Christmas party, so they will be getting this pretty “W” one tonight!


SONY DSCAaaaand, whatdya know, our last name starts with an F. I suppose we better just drink the wine in this one then, eh?

SONY DSCAre you going to any Holiday parties this year?

I probably won’t be stopping back in again before Christmas as I plan on spending more time with my family the next couple of weeks; so, I want to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas! 🙂

I link up at these fun parties!
