Weave in ends

Rejoin green at the end of row 25 (at the left hand edge of the bottle), make 1 dc in same space, make 1 dc at the end of every row working down the bottle, on the bottom row make 2dc to make a corner, make 1dc in every stitch along the bottom, make 2dc at the other end of the row, work back up the side of the bottle making 1 dc in the end of every row until you reach the other end of row 25. Fasten off and weave in ends

Use embroidery thread to sew on lettering to represent the bottle of your choice!

You can block your work using an iron and spray starch, this will give a nice stiff finish.

 

To make into bunting:

Arrange the bottles in the order that you would like (you will work from right to left). Chain 35, sl st along the top four stitches of the first bottle that you would like to join one that will be on the far right), chain 10, add the next bottle by slip stitching along, chain 10, continue to add bottles, finish with ch 35 which gives you a length to tie the bunting up with.
