Baby bottle covers are convenient accessories that insulate the bottles to help keep milk warm. The bottle covers can also help create a sturdy gripping surface so that older babies can hold the bottle by themselves. There are many different craft ideas you can use to create your own baby bottle covers. Use the homemade covers for your own family, as baby shower gifts or as merchandise at a craft fair.
Crochet Bottle Covers
Crocheting can be used for several different types of craft ideas for baby bottle covers. Use lilac yarn to crochet a plain cover with a tiny white ruffle around the top for a simple baby girl style. Use light blue and white yarn to crochet a striped cover with a thin, blue ribbon around the top for a simple baby boy style.
Use some fancy crochet techniques to create complicated baby bottle covers. Crochet a cream cover scattered with small pink and red roses. Add a thin, leafy-green ruffle around the top and bottom for a classic feminine style. Crochet a light-green cover scattered with colourful dinosaur shapes for a classic masculine style. Crochet a ribbed yellow cover with rainbow spots for a cheerful, unisex style.
Fleece Bottle Covers
Fleece is a soft and versatile fabric to use in several craft ideas for baby bottle covers. Create a brown cover from stretchy fleece and sew on cotton-stuffed arms, legs and ears to create a teddy bear body. Sew some black eyes, a pink nose and a pink mouth onto the top area of the cover to create the teddy bear face. Use the same basic technique to create a kitten or puppy baby bottle cover.
Create a baby bottle cover with handles to help older babies hold their own bottle. Use a grey stretchy fleece cover with sturdy, large, grey fabric ear handles to create an elephant. Embroider the front of the cover with large eyes and a trunk to create the elephant face. Use the same basic technique to create a puppy, monkey, cow or rabbit cover.
Sack Bottle Covers
Sack baby bottle covers do not fit tightly around a bottle the way crocheted and stretchy fleece covers do. Sack covers remain a little loose and are secured with an elastic band or fabric tie around the bottle neck. Embroider a colourful rag doll pattern on some thick, cream- and white-checkered, cotton-blended fabric to create a baby bottle cover with a country theme. Secure the cover with a thin lilac silk ribbon around the bottle neck.
Sew together small squares of fleece and terry cloth in assorted hues to create a multitextured and colourful cover with an elastic band around the neck. Use black corduroy covered with horizontal rings of assorted silk ribbons and a thick silk ribbon around the neck to create a cover with sharply contrasting textures and colours.
