These drinks holders are perfect for outings, parties and get togethers. They fit around most drinks bottles or cups and help your kid remember which is their drink!
Best of all, they are small and flat and slip easily into your bag to take with you!
Would you like to make one of your own?
Cut 2 rectangles of fabric - 30cm x 10cm (12" x 4")
and two pieces of stitch in velcro 8cm (3.25") long.
Plus personal embellishment!
I chose to add names - for which I used scrap material, vliesofix (fusible webbing) and cut out the letters to iron on. Go here for a lovely simple tutorial. I like to stitch around the edge of my finished applique for extra strength!
You could use any embellishment you choose - buttons, fabric flowers or none at all - the fabric you choose may be distinctive enough to remember which drink is yours!)
Attach your embellishment, and pin and stitch on the velcro pieces like this:
Place the rectangles right sides together..
And pin all the way around, then stitch,leaving a small gap to turn out when you're done.
Trim all four corners, then turn out through the gap you left in your stitching.
Iron flat, then top stitch all the way around the rectangle, as close to the edge as you can.
Now you can wrap your drink holder around your bottle !
Great if your kids drinks bottles look the same....
