Make it: Denim Wine Bags - recycled

Project: Recycled Denim Wine Bags

Old Jeans
Fabric Glue
Sewing Machine
Wine Bottle
1 Yard Ribbon

1.Lay the jeans out flat (iron if necessary) and line up the wine bottle on the lower leg. Position the bottle so the top is about 3 inches down from the hem.

2.Cut the leg off about 1” from the bottom of the bottle.

3.Turn the leg inside out.

4.Stitch the cut opening with a 5/8th inch seam allowance. Turn the bag right side out and press if needed.

5.Remove the pocket from the seat of the jeans and trim around the back of the pocket so you are left with just one layer of fabric.

6.On the backside of the pocket, apply a bead of fabric glue around the outer edge and glue to the wine bag about 2” from the bottom and allow to dry. Place the wine bottle in the bag and add a wine opener to the pocket and tie a ribbon around the neck of the bottle.

Tips and Tricks: not so great at sewing….in a pinch you could staple the seam on the wine bag closed.


  1. I just found a box full of the legs from jeans when going through stuff for my garage sale! I this would be really cute with some wine themed fabrics for the pocket too!


  2. This is an awesome idea!


I love comments and questions. Sometimes it takes me a few days to reply. Have a wonderful day!
