This is a fun and easy way to make a wine bottle sweater. I use the sleeves of old sweaters. Use an old wine bottle as a pattern so you know how tall to make the bottle sweater. I usually cut a little longer than the bottle. To cut the circle piece for the bottom of the bottle I place it on the old sweater and trace around the bottom of the bottle. Add 1/4" to the diameter for your seam allowance. This circle will let you know how much you will have to take in the sleeve so that the circle will sew in with ease.

It all started while playing with some metal zipper that I removed from a garmetn because it didn't work properly. I dislike throwing away anything that might have a use. As I worked with a couple of ideas the jewelry pictured here evolved from just playing. I have got a lot of positive comments and I have actually sold a piece. Please consider giving something unique Made in the USA. Thanks!
