Barbara here is the prototype quilted water holder, didnt do the strap yet....
side view of the pocket i added when its empty
it is 8" tall.
the french seams got a bit wonky cuz someone forgot to cut off the excess and the circle bottom was too big after i did the french seam which took away some real estate, thus the puckering.
I added a pocket for the phone, but it needs to be enlarged cuz when the water bottle and the phone are in at the same time, they are crowding each other!
these are pix of a prototype of a claim ive made for Barbara, as I am adjusting the pattern to make it larger and since we can't post pix in pms, i figured why not just post em? i will trim up the strings and add the strap and use it. but will add about 2" on the pocket width and another inch wider overall should take up the gap with the bottom.
