And because I used laminate fabric, I didn't even have to finish the edges. I just grabbed a piece of clear strapping tape, overlapped the ends and taped them together.
I suppose you could stitch a couple of 2" x 10" scraps right sides together along 3 edges,
Clip corners and turn it right side out using the help of a chopstick or other blunt object,
Press it using a damp press cloth,
Add a bit of Velcro (hook and loop tape) to the finished end, then edge stitch,
Measure to see where to add the other side of the Velcro, stitch that too,
Trim or finish the raw edge,
Then velcro it to your water bottle or other beverage container.
I bet my water bottle won't get mixed up with everyone else's. *Ü* Plus, it matches the rest of my little snippets in my sewing kit ensemble!
You can find the tutorials for most of these "Snippets" HERE, especially if you need a quick project or gift idea for your quilting and sewing friends. Still a couple more snippet tutorials to come -- I can't help it! I'm gathering supplies and assembling kits for a little sewing retreat at my house next week... such cuteness!
Have you tried sewing with Riley Blake laminate fabric? Would you like to?? I just happen to have an extra snippet of pink "So Cherry" laminate, enough to make a sewing kit, plus a little extra scrap to wrap around your water bottle too...
Give me your best guess what these snippets may have to do with this exciting little tidbit of information >>HERE<<. My dear husband will choose his favorite answer on Dec 30th (our anniversary). Meanwhile, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year from the Stott clan!
the laminate bikini did it for him... giggles. (sending a note)
