Wine Bags + Gift Wrap

Bagette Sheila ordered a couple of Wine Bags from me to give as birthday gifts. I forget how fun they are to make until I get in the thick of sewing them. Tutorial HERE on Sew Mama Sew in case you feel the need. I make them with zippers on top now instead of the velcro that's in the tutorial. It's great to do them either way. Also, simply take the insert out and they make GREAT lunch totes!
 And, what better to "wrap" them in than a couple of pretty Green Bag Lady bags??
Which brings up gift wrapping, the holidays are coming up, let's all try to find alternatives to traditional paper gift wrap. Need ideas?

Quick gift wrap tutorial

Wine idea, I found a tutorial for those of you who knit here.

You can make Green Bag Lady bags and tie the handles together for a simple AND reusable wrap as in the post here.

A peek under my tree here and here.

What do you say? Let's get started now on a paper free holiday season! Teresa

I checked your post about Christmas gifts =) It made me feel that Christmas is coming soon. Your tree was fantastic, and so were packed gifts.
It's definitely good idea to wrap them into cloth!!!
