Water Bottle Carrier

I decided to be brave & try something new (and hard!) in my sewing journey! I found a tutorial on how to make a water bottle carrier. I was intimidated to make it, but I am glad that I decided to brave it! I made a lot of mistakes (I messed up the bottom & the strap...boo...) but overall I am happy with how it turned out.

I started working on around 3ish & finished at 7:30ish....so a total of 4.5 hours. I did take a break for dinner & I had to deal with Jaxon too...and I had no idea what I was doing...so if I did not have any interruptions...and I know what I am doing now (well...sort of), it might only take me 3 hours to make one.

This was my practice one. I told Missy she could have it (lucky you Mis...you get the messed up one....lol). I am going to make another one for myself & as a gift. I am sure I will make more in the future, but I know that I will make 2 more in the immediate future!!

I want to make a bag soon. I have a pattern picked out, but I need to get out to the store to buy some canvas.

What I really need to make is a nursing cover. I do not have one anymore. After the nursing cover, then I will make a bag (for me...not the baby).

My brother-n-law was over playing the Wii with Joe & Jaden while I was making the water bottle carrier. He graciously posed as my model so you can see how you can you actually carry it.

I'm certainly not a sewing expert by any means but the bobbin thread getting tangled might be due to the bobbin tension. I would use a scrap piece of material and adjust the tension a wee bit then sew a little. If it gets better, keep going that direction on the testion. Hope that helps.
