For the bitter winter months, nothing beats an old fashioned hot water bottle for keeping your feet warm in bed. But an insulated cover will help the warmth last just a bit longer, and make it easy to clean by throwing a cover in the laundry.

Follow these steps to make your own!

Step 1: Use your Hot Water Bottle to make a Pattern

I looked at my stash of fabric pieces and selected a warm fuzzy material.

Lay out your water bottle on a double layer of the fabric that is laying flat with the right sides of the fabric together. Cut out a double thickness with a generous border around the bottle. You want to allow for the hems as well as any shrinkage of the fabric as its washed over the years.
Very Nice and easy to follow instructable. I've been looking for something like this. Thanks
