Measure around the bottle, and add 1 inch, then cut a 1-2" wide strip of felt in the length needed. Wrap it around the bottle, and find a good spot for a button, and sew it to one end of the strip.
Once the button is in place, figure out where to add the slit, and cut a small slit into the felt for a button hole. Once it's fit to the bottle, take it off, and embellish the felt!
I had some felt circles I had gotten a while ago, so I made "flowers" by stitching a smaller one to the center of a larger one, then I added 2 large and 1 small "flower" to the wraps.
The lotion bottles are smaller than the shower gel, so measure the bottles individually. I wound up cutting the slit to the lotion wrap too long, and it did not want to stay up, so I went back and stitched the end of the hole closed. You'll notice in the photo, it's sitting pretty low on the bottle, these were taken before I stitched it up.
I thin they turned out cute. They don't disguise what the item is, but they do disguise what scent they are. I used Blackberry Vanilla, which is purple, and used lavender felt for the wrap itself.
I love that these are totally reusable, and cute. They could be customized for baby showers (I always include a gift for the mom, not just the baby), bridal showers, birthday parties, or holidays.
It took me about 10 minutes each, but I did all the stitching by hand, so that was part of the length of time. These can be used for so many items, too, not just bottles of bubble bath! I even considered making these for Gilly's class for Valentine's bracelets, but quickly discarded that idea, but I may do a similar idea with elastic for that.
