What are you most proud of? That I can give her a Christmas gift that I know she'll love! What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is very easy to do.......measure bottle and play with your squares to get the right size..........I used 4.5" squares of fabric and 3.5" squares of batting. layer, sew X across squares. Sew wrong sides together....Three per side and one for the bottom....Cut strips the same width(4.5") and the length needed to sew into sides.....handle 30" long with batting inside....snip all your seam allowances and fluff them out.......Quick and easy gift....just add wine!
