This instructable is to show you how to make a wrist strap to hold your Nalgene or similar water bottle. (My First Instructable)

Step 1:

Start by measuring the length of the strap that you want by taking a piece of paracord and looping it around the top of the bottle just below the lip of where the cap goes on. As shown. I used about 2 1/2 ft. of #325 cord. Allowing a little extra for the loop where the snap (or whatever you want to use) can be attached.
Made this for my friend to use on her baby carriage
<p>Cool!Good job it looks nice!</p>
<p>Thank you for your Instructable</p><p>Nice job.</p><p>Rima</p>
<p>What was the purpose of the two different colors used in the photos. Are they the same cord or does the colors represent two different parts of the same cord?</p>
<p>They are two different cords. But it was mostly so that one could tell what was going on better. (Not to mention I liked the two different color look.) I guess you could make it all with one piece if you wanted to as well. </p>
<p>hi! have you tried tying the paracord onto the handle directly, reinforcing it?</p>
I have looped the bigger loop through the smaller one and it worked fine, but that is all.
made one today- nice quick project!
Cool! Hope you enjoy it as much as I have mine!
<p>Nice job! I need one of these :D</p>
