How to Sew a Cute Fabric Water Bottle Holder for Summer

Warm weather means outdoor fun! Maybe you’re going on a stroll through the neighborhood, an afternoon hike or sending the kids off camping. Whatever the reason, hydration is always important. Go hands-free and in style with a water bottle holder with NO CIRCLE BOTTOMS! 😎

I love a pretty and functional sewing project but the thought of using not one but two pretty small circles for a water bottle holder made me ready to throw in the towel… then I got creative. It doesn’t have to have a round bottom to fit your bottle well – a box bottom works just as well. (and that realization made me happy again!)

In this tutorial I use two of my August Fruit Toss fabrics from the Monthly Placemat Panel program and yellow – C605 from Lori Holt’s Shabby textured line for the lining. An optional hook is great to attach key fobs, lip balm holders and other things you might need while you’re out and about.

In this video I’ll show you step-by-step how to create a fabulous water bottle holder with a convenient crossbody strap.
