Santa Bottle Cover

Hi! Crafters!

This project is for a wine bottle; but you can substitute grape juice bottle or an unopened antique old soda bottle.  The reason I included alternative; because, I do not condone drinking.  I know too many folks with drinking issues.

Santa Bottle Cover

Materials:  Materials:  Red velvet fabric, 1 inch wide Black Ribbon, Gold Buckle, scissors, ruler, Pom poms, red and white thread, sewing needle, and White faux fur


Cut your red fabric to the following measurements for a standard wine bottle.

For the main part: 11 inch (28cm) x 8 inch (20 cm) (this allows for a 1/4 inch (1 cm) hem).

For the base: Cut a circle 11 inch (28cm) round.

For the hat: 4 inch (11cm) triangle folded into a cone and glued or sewn.

White fur trim – 2.5 inch (6cm) x 11 inch (28cm).

Use a small amount of trim for the hat.

Take your main part piece and fold it into half and sew inside out to make a tube. Your sewing hem should be 1 cm wide.

Take the circle base and sew it into place.

Sew on the top trim and put the hat together.

Thread the buckle onto the ribbon and glue on your black ribbon belt around the main part.

Share your ideas on this or anything here on the blog either here or e-mail me at sandi_tipple@yahoo.com.  I look forward to hearing from you!
