Homemade Water Bottle Holder
Make it more convenient to take that water bottle to the beach by making a holder for it (a bottle of water on the beach image by timur1970 from Fotolia.com)

Whether you are going hiking or just going to the office carrying bottled water is convenient. Having a water bottle with a strap or handle that makes it easy to carry makes it even more convenient. Making your own water bottle holder can save you money, but also lets you create a custom one that fits your personality.

  1. 1

    Measure the circumference of the water bottle and add 3/4 inch to that measurement. Decide how tall you want the water bottle holder to be and add an inch to that measurement. Cut a rectangular piece of fabric using these measurements for the length and width.

  2. 2

    Trace the bottom of the water bottle onto a piece of paper. Use a compass to draw another circle around it so it is 3/4 inches bigger all the way around. Cut this circle out and trace it onto fabric. Cut the fabric out.

  3. 3

    Fold the top edge of the rectangular piece of fabric down a 1/2 inch and hem it.

    Fold the rectangular piece of fabric in half, right sides together, and pin it along the side edge. Sew along the edge with a 1/4 inch seam.

  4. 4

    Pin the circle to the bottom of the bag. Sew along the edge with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

  5. 5

    Cut the webbing to the length you want it, plus an inch more. Pin the ends to the top edge of your bottle holder. Stitch along the top, bottom and sides of the webbing to form a square. For extra reinforcement sew an X through the centre of the square.

  6. 6

    Turn the water bottle holder right side out.
