For this project, you will need the following materials:
1. small sweatshirt or other long-sleeve top
3. cord or yarn to tie one end
4. cord lock (optional)
What's great about this project is that there is no sewing required but you will be doing a lot of cutting. See below for details of cut marks.
Cut one sleeve off the sweatshirt. This will be used as the main part of the bottle holder. Cut notches along the side of the sleeve which will be for tying the strap in place at the end of the project. Turn the cut end of the sleeve down about half inch as shown and cut holes along the end of the sleeve. These holes will be used for the cord that will hold the bottle in place.
Turn the sweatshirt so that the uncut side is flat and facing upwards. Start cutting the top of the lowest strip to the bottom of the next strip on the opposite side.
As you cut along, you will start to see the yarn growing.
Keep going until complete. Divide the yarn into three approximately equal lengths and tie the three pieces together into a knot at one end. Braid the yarn to the desired length of your bottle holder strap. Tie the strap to the four notches on each side of the sleeve. String a yarn or cord around the bottle end of the sleeve and add a cord lock if you have one. If you do not have a cord lock, you can double knot the end and put a bottle through the top end of the holder instead.
Here is the finished bottle holder.
