When our kids go to the summer camps, they bring their sack lunches along with their own water bottles.
I made a water bottle holder for my older daughter, using the fabrics she selected (she loves pink!)
The handmade bottle holder fits this 500 ml (or 1 pt 0.9 fl oz) water bottle snugly. Cotton batting is sewn between the outer fabric and the lining.
It's getting pretty hot here in the Southern California, so our kids must drink lots of water during the day, especially when they spend most of the day under the sun.
I sewed a detachable shoulder strap, so that my daughter can carry her water bottle wherever they go.
The opening is finished with the bias tape...
I made this water bottle holder based on this Japanese craft book, with some changes made here and there. I got this book several years ago, and I'm not sure if this book is still around, because unfortutnately, the publisher, Ondori-sha, went out of business in 2009 :(
Book title : Small Patchwork from Squares, Triangles, and Rounds

With the new water bottle holder on her shoulder, our daughter is ready to kick off to the summer day camp! Yay!
