This water bottle holder can hold a 500 ml. bottle as well as a 1.25 pt. bottle; it is lined w/Insul Brite to help keep your water/soda cool (there is a bottle of Naked in this one).


I used this tutorial for the measurements & changed things a bit:

What do you think? This fabric has random pictures of running a relay race & encouraging remarks. The straps are adjustable & all the seams are hidden. I've made several others. I even made one w/pockets, but it didn't work - pockets were too flat. I'll have to rework that one.

Anyway, here is an action shot (minus my head) to see how it looks:


Thanks for looking.

Great job!  My grandsons need something like this for school.  A suggestion for pockets:  cargo or pleated pockets would give a little room for ID's, lip balm, etc., and would be easy to attach to the carrier.  Put a flap over the pocket and secure with a snap, magnet closure, or velcro to make sure things won't slip out.

Thanks Neeterg. I did make 2 pockets, an open one for a cell phone, one w/a flap for a car key & coins & other small stuff. They were too flat, couldn't get into them w/a bottle inside - a cargo pocket or pleated one would work great.

Really like this.  I found that tute some time ago, bought insulated interfacing, just haven't gotten around to it.  Maybe I need to do that next!

lulu9527, you should totally make one - it is really easy. If you quilt the lining, it won't look so bunchy & loose.

Diesels_Mom, I'm a cheapo too. Use fat quarters, they go on sale a lot & I bought 1/4 yard of various fabrics - wasn't too expensive.
