Have an old t-shirt or skirt lying around? With little more than a pair of scissors and a sewing machine, you can turn your old clothes into a nifty wine tote for that bottle of Merlot you're giving to mum.
Practically any item of clothing will do, from football jerseys to old jeans. This video provides all the details on measurements, sewing techniques, and even how to hide a stain or tear on your soon-to-be wine tote. Spend a weekend making a few of these babies, buy a case or two of wine, and consider your holiday shopping done.
If you're not hauling or giving away bottles of wine, these bags are still pretty neat. What else could you use them for? Brainstorm in the comments.
