The things you will need

Pattern is located over at - www.craftsy.com

Cotton Fabric, or Canvas fabric

(if you are using Cotton fabric i recommend using an interfacing such as a light or medium weight)

I use pellon light weight fusible interfacing

Kam Snaps

Or you can create a button hole and use a regular button, or sew on snaps


Head over to www.Craftsy.com to download the pattern and cut out the pieces out of the fabric of your choice

This fabric i grabbed over at Hobby Lobby (2017) i love me some Palm fabric hehe

i used my light weight interfacing and ironed that onto the back of each piece

Now i will take the "pocket Piece" fold it with the wrong sides together and press, then i take my "main pieces" and fold the little tab down at the end and press


Now i will top stitch along the folded edge of the pocket pieces and then top stitch along the folded edge of the tabs on all of the pieces

when doing the pocket piece you can lay the piece flat and top stitch either side or you can sew the pocket piece closed, make sure your stop stitch is  about o1/8" of an inch away from the edge

This is how they should all look

Now you will layer the pieces, main piece right sides up, pocket piece on top with the "tabs" lined up, and the last main piece on top right side facing down.

You will sew around the whole thing but dont sew the "tab" part shut as that is the place you will flip your holder and its also the hole your bottle lid will poke through

make sure when you are sewing along you do a quarter of an inch seam allowance, if you need direction on how to sew this please follow my link to the tutorial ūüėÄ

Also when you start sewing start next to the "tabs" and lock your stitches a bunch when you go to flip it right sides out there will be pressure on those stitches and you dont want it to bust back open again.

Now flip it right sides out

i did a top stitch around the top of the holder (do not top stitch on the pocket)

put in  your bottle and test out where you want your snaps to be and then install your snaps, i slipped a binder ring around the closure to hook onto my keychain, backpack, purse, or planner

Pinking Shears what are they?

What are Pinking Shears?

Pinking Shears are a type of Scissor used in sewing, invented in 1931 by Sameul Briskman

The saw tooth pattern helps prevent Woven fabrics from fraying to put it simply, it doesnt completely eliminate fraying but it does slow it down giving you time to be able to create your project
