Water Bottle Carrier with Clip Tutorial

Water resistant fabric can be a bit tricky sometimes.  Not really sure what to make with it other than a table cloth.  During the summer we are going on hikes, riding bikes, camping and doing other outdoor activities…which means you need to bring along a water bottle.

This oil cloth or laminate/waterproof fabric is perfect for making a little heavier duty holder.  If it gets a bit sticky with juice it can be quickly wiped off and ready to go again.

The bottom of the bottle has criss cross straps to hold the bottle in place.  The clip lets you attach your water bottle holder to camp chairs, bike handles or backpacks.  It’s a great grab and go sort of thing.
