Water Bottle Carrier Tutorial

Water Bottle Carrier Tutorial
This water bottle carrier was inspired when I found myself carrying everyone’s water in my backpack for the 4th of July parade. Next time, everyone carries their own! This is my first tutorial so please feel free to send me corrections or comments on how to make it better. 1. Cutting Instructions Cut one piece of fabric for the exterior and one piece for the interior each 10 3/4 wide x 8 inches tall. Cut 2 circles of your lining fabric, the circle should have a 3 3/4 inch diameter. Cut one piece of Insul-Brite 9 x 7 inches. For strap, cut one length of twill tape and one length of ribbon, both 42 inches long. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Step One: Pin WRONG sides of sides together and stitch a 1/4 inch seam. Step Two: Turn tube wrong side out. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Tips: This carrier fits a small 500 mL bottle of water. The formula for sizing the diameter of the bottom circle is: the circumference of the circle divided by 3.14 (or pi).
