Sewing tutorial – Cross Body Water bottle holder

Hey guys! its almost summer where i am from and we will be frequenting the local zoo’s, theme parks and going on hikes! Its always my goal to make sure my kids get an obseen amount of water haha if you have kids you know kids just LOVE holding things… haha 😐 so without having them hold it whats the next best thing!? Strap it too them!

So i decided to make my own cross body holders for my kids cups, the cups i have for my kids are the Thermos brand which can be found walmart, toys r us and the contigo brand which can be found walmart or costco

This tutorial will have measurements for these particular cups but i will show you how to measure your cup to make a cross body water bottle holder for any size bottle

Download the PDF to view the pattern measurements and if you would like to print it out you can do that but it is fairly easy to replicate

Materials – Canvas Fabric

Optional D- Rings

you will need a Main fabric, a lining fabric (if using canvas do not stabalize, if using cotton stabalize)

cut 2 rectangles, cut 2 circles, for strapping cut 2 – 2 1/2″ strip of fabric, measure from the front of your waist over your shoulder to the back of your waist, add 6″ more for the D rings if you choose to add those)

Note* If you are doing a two tone bag split the measurement in half and add 1/2″ to each piece

Fold the fabrics length wise, sew down the raw edge to create a tube, attach the circle to the one end of the tube with a ton of pins, take your time and carefully line up the edges of the tube with the edges of your circle

When sewing the Main fabric of the bag use a 1/4″ seem allowance, when sewing the lining of the bag use a 1/2″ seam allowance this will allow your lining to fit nicely inside the outer piece.







This is how they should look, turn the outside piece right sides out and leave the lining inside out.

place the lining inside the outer bag, fold in the edges of the lining and the outer bag, if your adding D rings place 3″ piece of strap through the ring and sandwich it in between the two layers of fabric, if your not using a D ring then evenly space your straps inbetween the two layers of fabric

Top stitch along the edge of the bag aas close to the edge as possible securing the straps, if using a D ring slip the strap through folding it back on itself 1″ and sew to secure the strap to the bag

    Hi Ashley! I’m in the process of making this water bottle holder and I realized that I don’t have any canvas/duck fabric. I saw that you had mentioned to add stabilizer/interface to the fabrics if using cotton.

    Do you have any suggestions on what brand or width of the interface/stabilizer? I have 2 types on hand:
    1. Dritz® Innerfuse (double sided, medium stiff fusible interfacing)
    2. Heat n Bond® lite (permanent iron-on adhesive; great for lightweight fabrics, machine appliqués, quilting)

      i would probably go with the medium weight if you dont have a canvas fabric on hand and are doing a cotton. light weight might be too light

    Hi Ashley. I never comment but…I just watched you video on this and wanted to say the tip about different seam allowances for the inner and outer pieces was great. I wouldn’t have thought of that and the other video I watched didn’t do that. Great stuff!
