This water bottle holder, free tutorial will help you step by step through an easy and quick sewing project. Perfect for handmade Christmas presents, teacher gifts, or just keep it yourself.
I have made and given away many of these over the years. Initially I was inspired by a pattern by Pink Chalk Fabrics which Kathy published in 2006. In Kathy’s version she sews in a circular base which is a really lovely finish (I’ve sewn lots like this) however it is very fiddly and time consuming. My version below is a bit quicker and features straps inserted into the seams.
When I am overwhelmed with life I often retreat into my studio, and sometimes then become overwhelmed with the mess in there, but this soon passes as I navigate around the mess and dig deep into my happy place and create. Today I thought I would share how to quickly whip up this groovy water bottle holder. These are super all year round, but especially in summer. They keep your water bottle cool and make it easy to carry anywhere with you. Plus you can use up some of your favourite fabrics.
I created this tutorial initially on Instagram Stories but they only stay live for 24 hours. The photos aren’t brilliant but they were done on the run with my phone.
