Here are three bottle gift bags that I made: One for my mom, one for my friend, and the last one for HER mom. They are on bottles of lotion that my husband got free from work.
I did take down the pattern while I was crocheting them, and when I have the desire and the time to type it down next week, it will be up here for you to enjoy!

I got the instructions for the crochet cord here (Technique 2) : How to Crochet a Cord
The directions are a little bit confusing, so I may do a picture tutorial on my blog on making this cord.
