I looked at a few water bottle covers tutorials and noticed that they’re very creative but miss the step about getting a cover that fits! If I’m going to appliqué the front, I really hope the water bottle will fit in it once it’s done. My instructible is for the basics, please add your own creative touch.

 Although I sewed this by machine, it is simple enough that it can be done by hand. I do recommend reinforcing the sides of the opening as this is the most likely place for your stitching to break.

Like this pattern and want to try something bigger?

Step 1: What you need:

Water bottle
Polar fleece, 9" of 60" wide ( 23 cm of 150 cm wide)
2 sew-on snaps
Either a needle or a sewing machine
<p>I just made this today - a great Saturday project for a sick little girl. It took me a long time, because I quilted the front and put a rainbow on it, but the pattern was easy to follow and I will definitely be using this pattern again! Thank you Veska! </p>
<p>this literally took me 20 minutes from start to finish; BRILLIANT!</p>
I'm not great with the sewing machine but fancied trying this. The tutorial was so straightforward - lots of pictures and easy to follow instructions - so I turned one out very quickly and it looks really professional! Thank you so much - its inspired me to try other things :)
