Water Bottle Holder

Happy Wednesday!!! Here's a project I've been thinking about for a couple of days now. It's a water bottle holder for me! I don't like carrying anything when I go for my walks so I decided to put our beautiful new Designer Fabric to good use. I made it large enough to hold a big water bottle and I can still put my keys in the bottom!!

The fabric is from our Occasions Mini catalog and it's called Springtime Vintage. The fabric is 100% cotton and comes in 3 coordinated designs in extra fat quarters, approx. 28"x18" and sells for $9.95 for all 3 pieces!!! What a deal! I do have to say that this fabric is my ABSOLUTE favorite of all the SU! fabrics we've had so far. I just love the feminine look of it. I've used all 3 designs on this project and just love how it turned out. The ribbon is retired but it's SU!'s Rose Red and Brocade Blue. I just stitched 2 straight (kind of) lines down the ribbon, hemmed each end and added button holes. The buttons are also SU!! They're our Big Designer Buttons and are also in the Occasions Mini and you get 48 buttons, 4 each of 3 designs in 4 colors, Crumb Cake, Rose Red (used here), Pear Pizzazz and Night of Navy!!!! They coordinate with our fabric perfectly and sell for $8.95!!
To make the holder I cut 12 scallop squares out using our AWESOME Scallop Square Die for the Big Shot and 2 hand cut triangles for the bottom. I stitched them all together with the scallops left out to make this project kind of Shabby Chic. It is reversible and the inside is all finished if you prefer the smooth look.

Now, I am NOT a seamstress at all!!! I am very much a novice at sewing but this was SO very easy to make I know, if I can make it, anyone can make it!!

If you would like to see our gorgeous fabric just download the Occasions Mini catalog and check it out. There is also another beautiful fabric bundle in the mini in case you don't like this one. Don't forget all the incredible stamps, accessories and finished projects in the catalog too and if you purchase $50 from ANY catalog, you will get to choose a FREE item from our Sale A Bration Catalog!!! It's just a great month to purchase those items on your wish list AND get some FREE stuff too!!! Just go to my SU! Website to place your order and don't forget you'll get PREFERRED PRICING by placing an online order too!!!!

Well, that's it for me today. I'm off to go walking with my new water bottle holder!!
I hope you have nice weather so you can enjoy a walk or just being outside today!!
