Water Bottle Holder with Free Pattern

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Brita, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BritaOnTheGo http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

As a teacher, I have a very hectic schedule during the day.  I’m constantly on the go.  I’m on the go so much that I honestly forget to drink enough water.  I know it’s one of the worst possible things I can do for my health.  Well, if you ask almost any teacher, that is pretty standard.  Well, in order to get back on track with my water consumption and improve my personal health, I’ve started making a point of taking a Brita Water Filter bottle to work.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 2

I picked up my Brita Water Filter at Walmart in the Hardware section.  You can also find them here.  First of all, this water bottle is great because it’s BPA free.  The even better part is that since my school is a much older facility, it filters the yucky tasting tap water, and reduces any chlorine taste, odor, zinc, copper, mercury or cadmium.  I also like how the filter is good for up to 300 uses, and by reusing the the bottle, it will keep 300 disposable plastic water bottles from going into the landfill, or even the recycling center.

Well, since I have my Brita water bottle all filled up, I wanted to make sure that I could  fashionably carry it with me to and from school, as well as between my two teaching classrooms each day. That’s why I came up with this handy dandy, fashionable water bottle holder tutorial that I wanted to share with you.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 3

First of all, I chose a sun outdoor fabric because it is a little heavier and would repel water.  Plus, it was such a pretty mandala design that I couldn’t resit. It matches my personality perfectly.  You could also make this pattern with regular fabric too.  My test pattern was out of regular cotton fabric and it worked just as well.

Supplies Needed:

  • Fabric (Sun or Regular Fabric)
  • Nylon for the inner lining
  • Batting
  • Coordinating Thread
  • Scissors
  • Nylon Webbing
  • Bungee cord
  • (2) Grommets
  • Gromet Setter
  • (1) Plastic Toggle Spring Stop

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 4

Step 1:  Cut the fabric, batting, and nylon all to 9″ x 12″ pieces.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 5

Step 2:  Cut a 4″ circle out of the fabric, batting, and nylon as well.

Step 3:  Make a proper hem at the top of your fabric.

Step 4: Take your outside piece of printed fabric and fold it in half so the print is on the inside. Pin and sew a 1/4″ hem along the 9″ side. When finished you will end up with a tube. DO NOT turn it right side out yet!

Step 5:  Taking the circle piece of fabric, pin it to the bottom of your tube. Make sure the bottom (no print side of the fabric) is facing out. Pin this in place and sew the circle to the tube piece. When done, reach through the tube, grab the bottom, and pull it through to make it right side out. It should look like this below.

 

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 6

Step 6:  Take your batting and nylon pieces. Fold the top over and sew a proper hem.

Step 7: Repeat steps 4 and 5 with your nylon and batting materials. When finished you will end up with a second tube.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 7

Step 8: Slide the inner tube into the first tube you made. Make sure the batting is between the nylon and outside fabric like the photo above. See that wasn’t too hard. Now you’re almost done! Onto the straps.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 8

You can make the strap one continuous piece or you can use a parachute buckle. I wanted to be able to adjust the length of my water bottle holder, so I went with the parachute buckle.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 9

Step 9: Slip the nylon webbing  about 1″ down between your two tubes. Pin it in place but don’t sew it yet. If you’re just using 1 piece of webbing without a buckle, measure and cut the nylon webbing to what’s appropriate for the height you want the bottle to hang to. Since I decided to go with a buckle, I used about 1-1/4 yard long piece of webbing, which I cut into a 24″ piece and whatever the the remaining was. Before you thread the nylon webbing through the buckle, you will want to melt the end so it doesn’t fray. Be careful, this stuff gets really hot. Next, take the female end of the buckle and slide the webbing through with about a 1″ overlap.  Create a small fold under your webbing before sewing it so you don’t end up with the sharp, burned end exposed. Pin this folded end of webbing in place and sew it. Take the other side of your strap, and slide it down about 1 inch between your two tubes just like the first, but on the other side of the holder. Pin it in place as well. Next, slide the other end through the male part of the buckle. Once you have both pieces threaded through the buckle and pinned in place, run a stitch around the tube, securing the webbing, but keep it about 3/4″ below the lip. This creates at bottom of the pocket that keeps the bungee in place.

Step 10: Punch (2) small holes in the outer layer of fabric and secure a small grommet in each of them. This is a really nice and easy way to finish the opening where the bungee slides through.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 10

Step 11: Take your 20″ long piece of bungee cord, find the middle and tie a knot in it. Then, slide both ends of the bungee cord through the Plastic Toggle Spring Stop. Next, slide each end of the bungee cord through the front of the grommet, and pull them through. Place the ends of your bungee cord side by side, overlapping about 3/4″ and sew them together. Now you have a closed loop with the Toggle attached. The knot that you tied will keep the toggle from slipping off of your bungee cord so you won’t lose it. 🙂  Also,you can re-adjust the location of the knot later if it isn’t where you like it.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 11

Step 12: Fit the bungee loop between the inner and outer fabric. Pin the top and sew around the rim just below your proper hem, and you’re finished. It should look like above.

 I love how the water bottle holder makes the Brita water bottle even more convenient to carry around.

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 13

 Now I’m really looking forward to getting back on track with my water intake.  The Brita water bottle also has markings on the side of the water bottle letting you know how much water you have consumed throughout the day.  This will be a great help for making sure I’ve met my daily intake goals.  I am trying for at least two water bottles full per day or 44 ounces!

Water-Bottle-Holder-with-Free-Pattern-Artzy Creations 14

 This water bottle holder will be great for short hikes too!  So, go out and get started on getting more hydrated with a Brita water bottle, and  by following this pattern and tutorial, you too can design and create your own water bottle holder that fits your unique personality.

Here’s to getting healthier.

  • Embroidery Floss (DMC Floss)

Step 2:  Wrap the yarn around the hoop until the hoop is entirely covered.

Step 3:  Tie a knot  and secure the end of yarn on the back side of the hoop.

Step 4: Fold your fabric scrap in half.  Take the clip art heart and secure it in place with a pin.   Cut  two hearts out of the piece of fabric.  This will make one finished heart.   Cut 10 hearts out of fabric for 5 complete hearts.

Step 5:  Take a piece of embroidery floss and sew two  heart pieces together making sure the right side of the fabric is facing out on both pieces of fabric.  I sewed large stitches in.  Sew around the heart and leave a little opening to stuff the heart.

Step 6:  Stuff the heart with fiber fill and sew the rest of the heart closed.

Step 7:  Repeat this process for all of the hearts.

Step 8:  Hot glue the hearts in place.

DIY String Art Valentine’s Day Cards and Blog Hop

DIY-String-Art-Valentine's Day-Cards-Artzy Creations 2

Hi Everyone!  Today, I’m doing a fun Valentine’s Day Blog Hop with some of my favorite ladies from the Caffeinated Crafters. We’re all in the Valentine’s Day spirit and wanted to share some fun ideas that we’ve come up with to inspire you to get your craftiness on.  Check out all of the fun Valentine’s day ideas below.

Have I told you how much I love stationary?  I also like to send and receive letters, especially on nice stationary.  I think that’s one of the reasons I still am so fond of snail mail.  I just love opening letters and cards.  To this day, one of my favorite things is receiving an envelope in the mail. I seriously  get SO excited to see what the card or letter inside looks like.  I love everything about it.  O.k. I know I have exceeded my use of the word love right now, but I can’t help it.  🙂

Well, a couple of days ago, I met the awesome Lyndsey Wells who blogs over at The Stationary Place.  She too is a lover of stationary and snail mail.  Lyndsey also holds an annual Valentine’s Day card swap that I was lucky enough to be able to participate in.  I exchange Valentine’s Day cards with five other people from all over the U.S. and I even have one international person as well.  Our cards need to be mailed soon to make it to everyone on by the 14th so, I thought I better get to making mine.  As I was considering what to do for my cards, I thought, how fun it would be to make a version of string art, but for a Valentine’s Day card.  This idea turned out to be really quite simple and fun!  The best part is… there’s no right or wrong when it comes to making your design. Let’s get started.

DIY-String-Art-Valentine's Day-Cards-Artzy Creations 3

Here’s What You Need:

  • Pencil
  • Blank Cards or heavy paper to fold into a card (Any color will work!)
  • Needle
  • DMC Floss (Colors that you prefer!)
  • Scissors
  • Thimble (Optional)

DIY-String-Art-Valentine's Day-Cards-Artzy Creations 4

Step 1:  Using a pencil, lightly draw your design onto your card.  If you don’t want to free hand you drawing, trace a design.

Step 2:  Thread your needle with the DMC Floss.

DIY-String-Art-Valentine's Day-Cards-Artzy Creations 6

Step 3:  Tie a knot at the end and begin to make criss cross lines all over you design.  Tie off each piece of thread when you run out of length.

Step 4:  Once you think you are happy with the look of your design and you think you have gone back and forth enough times, you can outline your design.  This is really optional depending on the look you want.

DIY-String-Art-Valentine's Day-Cards-Artzy Creations 7 DIY-String-Art-Valentine's Day-Cards-Artzy Creations 8

For the card above, I actually used some Baker’s Twine that I had to create the heart.  Who knew sewing with Baker’s Twine would turn out so cute?

DIY-String-Art-Valentine's Day-Cards-Artzy Creations 9

 Well, have fun making and then personalizing the inside of your own DIY String Art Valentine’s Day cards. I know I did, and I can’t wait to send them out for my card exchange.

Burlap Apple Teacher Gift

Artzy Creations_Burlap Apple_Main Image

This tutorial is an oldie but goodie that was initially posted on Here Comes The Sun.   However, I thought it would be great to share this again especially since Back To School is right around the corner.

Here’s my tutorial for an original and personalized gift idea for teachers. This is how to make a Burlap Apple as a back to school or end of the year gift for or your son or daughter’s teacher.

Here’s what you need:

  • Burlap
  • Craft Paint (red, brown, green)
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors
  • Sewing Machine
  • Stuffing
  • Black Thread
  • Ribbon
  • Sharpie Marker

I took an old rice sack that I had saved for the burlap or you can purchase some at the fabric store.

Step 1: Start by cutting 2 squares roughly 5” x  5”.

Step 2: Draw an apple shape onto the burlap or freehand cutting the apple shape out.  If you’d prefer, you can print out a clip art apple and then size it correctly on a copy machine.  Then use it as a template or stencil to cut your (2) pieces of burlap. Also, be sure to cut out (2) leaves from your burlap.

Step 3: Paint one of the apples the necessary colors using the craft paints (red, brown, green).  Let it dry. You could also paint the back side but I kind of liked the rough unfinished look for the back, so I left it.

Step 4: Sew a ¼ “ to  ½”  boarder around the apple in black thread.  The black thread makes for a nice contrast.  Make sure to leave an opening to stuff the apple.  After you’ve stuffed your apple, go around the entire apple a few times.  I went three times around.  Sew the outline of the leaves and attach the leaves with hot glue.

Step 5: Take a thin tipped black sharpie marker and write the name of the teacher on the apple.

Now, you can stop here or embellish it a bit further.  I wanted my daughter’s teacher to be able to hang this up in her room, so I added some wire to it.

Here’s how I attached the wire to the back.  I just threaded it through the burlap on the back side. Here is a close up of what I did.

Next, I took a pair of needle nose pliers and twist the wire up into a curl.  I attached some ribbon to the wire on one side.

There you have it, a cute burlap apple for your son/daughter’s teacher, and take it from me as a fellow teacher… they will truly appreciate the cuteness & effort.

Ice Cream and Popsicle Necklaces For Kids with Free Template

final image 1B

Okay. Do I have a treat for you!  My daughters love ice cream and popsicles.  I know, what kid doesn’t?  My youngest daughter loves ice cream so much that she actually thinks her middle name should be strawberry ice cream.  Anyways, I wanted to incorporate their two loves of ice cream and popsicles and make them into fun and cute necklaces that they could actually wear.

Here’s What You Need:

  • Wool Felt (You could use any type though.)
  • Needle
  • Thread (Sewing Machine Optional)
  • Eyelet Kit
  • Hammer
  • Tiny Hole Punch (Optional)
  • Chain Necklace
  • My Template

FELT ICE CREAM CONE AND POSICLE TEMPLATE

Begin by downloading and printing out the template…

Next, cut out your pieces of Felt.  Now it’s time to sew. Sew the ice cream cone first or the popsicle stick depending on which one you’re making. Once that part is done, finish by sandwiching the cone or stick between the two top pieces and sew them in place.

Now that you’re finished sewing them, it’s time to insert the eyelet. Start by punching a hole where you want the eyelet to be located. Insert the eyelet through your punched hole. Use a hammer to gently pound and flatten the eyelet with the eyelet tool. I did this on top of a piece of wood so that it would help keep the eyelets from getting too flat.

Ice Cream Necklace_Eyelets

 That’s it. Very straight forward and they are pretty quick to make. Just thread your chain through the eyelet and put them on.

 I hope your’kids love these necklaces as much as mine do… just don’t let them eat them 😉

Bitty Bunnies with Free Pattern

final main image2

I wanted to make my girls something special for Easter.  I try to make them something that is homemade every year.  They have fleece bunnies and birdies.  However, this year I wanted to make my own version of a bunny that the girls could have as a keepsake.  I hand drew and drafted this pattern myself.  Lily, my youngest, loves little stuffed animals that she can hold and play with that are not too cumbersome.  That is how the bitty bunny came about.

This is a great simple pattern too, if your looking for something that doesn’t take days to make.  It is perfect for the novice sewer as well.

Here’s What You Need:

  • Printed Pattern (Here)
  • Scraps of Fabric (I used printed fabric and linen.  The linen I used from an old pair of pants.)
  • Pom Pom Trim (Optional)
  • DMC Floss (Coordinating Color to Match Your Fabric)
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Polyester Stuffing
  • Scissors

Step 1: Print the pattern out and cut out all of the pattern pieces.

Step 2: Cut out all of the fabric pieces.

Step 3: Embroider the face onto the bunny with a coordinating color of DMC floss.  I started with the nose and then the mouth.  I found it easier to position the eyes after the nose and mouth had been completed.

Sewing bunny head on

Step 4: Begin by pinning the face of the bunny to the printed fabric.   Right sides together.  Sew the face to the body of the bunny.

Find and Cut Coordinating Trim

Step 5: This step is optional.  But, I really think it adds to the look of the bunny.  Find any type of trim that coordinates well with your fabric choices.  Measure and cut the length.  I tacked the trim on by hand.  However, if you want you can sew this trim on with a sewing machine.

Trim added to bunny

Step 6: Place right sides of the ears facing together, sew them with about a 1/8 to a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Tacked Ears

Step 7:

Fold the ears in at the bottom and pin temporarily.  Tack the bottom of the ears with needle and thread to hold them in place.

Sewing the bunny together.

Step 8:

Make a sandwich of sorts with the front, ears, and the back of your fabric.  The print side of the ears will face the right side of the print of the fabric for the front of the bunny.  Before, I sewed all of the pieces of the bunny together, I lightly tacked the ears in place so it would ensure that they wouldn’t move on me.  Sew all the way around the bunny with 1/8 “to 1/4″ seam allowance leaving a 1” opening at the bottom.  Fill the body with the polyester fill and hand sew the bottom together.  Oh, and don’t forget to flip the bunny over and sew a little pom pom on the butt.

There you have it!  I loved how these turned out.

I couldn’t resist including a photo of their little pom pom bottoms.

This is a pretty quick sew, and a fun little project if you’re in need of one for Easter.

I hope you enjoy it!

DIY Kids Pool Bag

pool bag featureThis idea all came about because my kids love the pool and my little one keeps asking me when the swim park is going to open.  I thought it would be a cute idea if the girls had their own bags.  So, here’s a really easy tutorial to make a kids bag for the pool.  It’s never too soon to get ready for the pool and to look forward to summer weather.

I took a trip to TJ Maxx and found a beach towel for $12.00.  I wanted one that wasn’t a really light color because my girls are so hard on things and I found this really cute polka dot beach towel that was just right for the project.

towel

Here’s what you need for the pool bag:

  • Large Beach Towel
  • Scissors
  • Matching Thread

DSC_0718

Start by measuring the towel at at 14 1/2″ x 14 1/2″ and cut two pieces for each of the sides of the bag.  I located the finished edges of the towel so they formed the top lip of the bag.  That way the edges were already nicely finished and it was one less step for me. Here’s another time saving hint…  If you carefully select a towel with a pattern that follows the direction of the finished edge, you can cut (1) piece that measures 14 1/2″ x 28 1/2″. Then fold it in half. Sew the bottom and one side. This leaves only one seam on the side or none on the bottom. I would have liked to have done this but I wanted just the large polka dots and not the red stripe for this bag, so I had to cut the towel into two pieces.

example of finished edges

Put the right sides together and sew along the 3 edges with a 1/4′ seam allowance.

For the handles, cut two strips at 4″ x 24″ and taper them at the end.cut straps

Run a zigzag stitch along the edge of the straps or serge the edges.

Fold in roughly 1/4″ along the edges to hem and do this for both straps, then hem the edges. pinned edges

Next, attach the strap to the side of the bag.  Fold the edge under twice.  Sew this onto the bag.

There you have it!  It’s so simple and easy.  Plus, you get a couple of bags out of one towel.
