Cheap-Wine Bottle Koozie


As someone keeping careful watch of her pennies, I’m a fan of Trader Joe’s $3 Buck Chuck to keep at home when I’m in the mood for a glass of wine. While I love it, there are some wine afficionados who sometimes turn up their noses at the stuff without ever having tasted it. What’s the solution to get them to try it? I made a wine koozie out of some Moda toweling fabric to disguise the label. Mwah!

This is a super-fast sewing project. I simply measured around mybottle at the widest part for the lenght of the koozie, then measured down the front of the bottle to see how big the label was to cover up. This chardonnay bottle came in at 10 inches long and 5 inches deep. I added some zig-zag stitching on the bottom and top for added flair (and to create a hem on the raw edge I cut). I then folded wrong sides together, quickly stitched up the back, turned right-side out, and had a cute koozie ready to use.
