H2O to GO

Ok, here's something I made out of necessity. I am trying to walk every other day and yesterday I was just tired of carrying my water bottle. So, I came up with this water bottle holder. It's all ribbon and knots. There is no SU! ribbon this time. Instead, I just used some cute ribbon I had stashed away. It was so simple to make. I just pulled a piece of ribbon out and hung it around my neck to see how long I wanted it. Then I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the bottle and tied a knot. Then tied the neck piece to opposite sides of that the piece wrapped around the bottle. Ok, next I tied a piece to the one wrapped around the bottle and went under the bottle and back up to the other side and tied it off to the same piece. Did that 2 other times for a total of 3 pieces of ribbon tied from one side, under the bottle then tied to the other side. Then I didn't think that would hold so I wrapped another piece of ribbon around the bottom 3/4 of the bottle and used little scraps of ribbon to tie that piece to each of the 3 other pieces. Then I tied another scrap to the bottom of the bottle where all the ribbons crossed to keep them in place. I think that's it. I hope all this makes sense. If not, just let me know and I'll do my best to clarify. Anyway, now my hands are free when I'm walking...WOO HOO!! And the great thing is, I don't have to take it out of the holder to get a drink. It stays in the holder until I add another bottle. I hope you like this idea and that it inspires you to make your own or to just get out and walk.
Have a great day!!
