wine bottle carrier

Have had great fun making these totes for wine bottles.They are wet felted around a resist then the details on the first were needle felted, the other two had grapes made from felt balls and
felted and embroidered leaves.
My maths are terrible but I am getting better at working out shrinkage rates and for these resists I just took the measurements from a wine bottle added a bit for the handle area and enlarged it by 30% and it has worked well.To me they are the sort of present you would give to someone who has everything!
