Use that Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon!

July 12, 2010

I love giving presents and I really love wrapping them. When I was little, I remember sitting with my mom before Christmas and meticulously wrapping presents and creasing the edges. As I grew up, my wrapping style changed a little and I got a little more artsy and starting “coloring outside of the lines”.

I wanted to share with you how a gift I recently gave looked when I wrapped it in simple tissue paper and then used the Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon. You can check out the whole category of my Recycled Sari Ribbons by clicking here

KNIT: Recycled Silk Pattern Wine Bottle Bag

November 2, 2009

Check out this video and please give it a second to load!

MMMMM it's wine time!

MMMMM it's wine time!

How to make the Darn Good Yarn Wine Bottle Bag

Get a pair of size 15 needles,
get 2- 100g balls of the yarn we call the blender

Click here to get me! The Blender

Click here to get me! The Blender

You can get a little bit of ribbon too (or you can use left over yarn) This will be used in the finished product.. I’ll explain in a little bit

So, this one is easy: Cast on 39 sts and work in moss stitch (k1, p1) until your rectangle measures 6.25 inches long. Now stitch up the side. Ok now measure 3 inches down. Remember that ribbon? Yes? Well weave it in and out of your project. When you slip the bottle of wine in, you’ll use this to tighten the bag around the neck of the bottle.

Don’t like wine? Find some olive oil and use the same mechanics to give a stunning gift!

Not only is the inside goodies great but this bag totally has a chance of being re-used and will make your present look like the best one under the tree or on the table!
