    Next, cut sweater one-half inch below the bottle’s bottom.

    Using the same sleeve, cut another 3” cuff and slice it vertically so it lays flat. This will serve as the flat bottom for your sleeve.

    Measure and cut around the circumference of your bottle but measure about a half-inch larger.

    Next, turn the full sleeve inside out and sew or hot glue the bottom onto the sleeve. Turn it right side out.
