I had the idea for this pattern last Christmas whilst looking at a bottle of wine on the table. I thought; how can I make this look more festive? I made a quick stetch... & here's the result - a super-fun, festive bottle-'jacket.'
This pattern gives you full instructions, including handy colour photos, to make your very own cover for a bottle of wine! It looks just like a little waistcoat and shirt!
Simple to create and needing just a small amount of fabric, you can make up this pattern in just one evening. Great for Christmas, for presents or any time of year!

Once upon a time a budding artist and crafter decided to teach some sunny little art courses to other people also interested in creating stuff. After a few happy months of playing with ideas, creating works, crafting, studying, printmaking and generally making a good old mess, in 2003, Magenta Sky was born, and that budding artist was Susan Yeates.
You've heard of blue sky thinking? Well, here we believe in 'Magenta Sky Thinking.' Think creatively, always look to learn new things and make, make make!
We just love making ‘stuff’ and have expanded from teaching just art and printmaking to other techniques such as sewing, crochet and other creative projects! Sharing our knowledge, ideas and motivating others to be creative is what we are all about!
We gain inspiration from a huge variety of sources… the world at large, fabric shops, exhibitions, car boot sales, photographs, other artists, magazines, books, people and places. Sometimes even a word or phrase will provide inspiration for a sewing project to make, a print to produce or even a workshop to teach!
We have loads of creative stuff available on our website www.magenta-sky.com. This includes a blog, free downloads, video tutorials, images, courses, patterns and much much more!
