Quick Project: Water Bottle Carrier

   This water bottle carrier will come in extra handy when I'm out and about.  I found this tutorial here.  Thank you Pink Chalk Studio.  This holds a 16.9 fl. oz. bottle of water.  That's a pretty standard size around here.

    The tutorial was really easy to follow and from fabric cutting to finish took about 2 1/2 hours.

      I used some pretty Laurel Burch cat fabric I had in my stash and I also had the Insul-Brite already as well.  I used the same fabric for both the lining and the outside to save me time.

     I did change up the strap.  I made my strap from fabric strips because I didn't have any twill tape or pretty ribbon like the blogger used.  To make my strap I cut two wof pieces 2 1/2" wide and sewed them together to make a long piece about 80" long.  I ironed the strip in half lenghthwise, then folded the long edges to the crease in the middle, then I folded it again making it about 3/4" wide.  I ironed it down, then I sewed it 3/8" from the edge.  I trimmed the length to about 58", then attached it just like she attached her ribbon strap.  It's very comfortable.
