I’ve made several Water Bottle Totes for friends and family this year. These two are totes I haven’t shown you yet…

You may recognize this as the fabric I used for my embroidered leather zipper pouch. I love this fabric, and I have more…so you’ll probably being seeing it again!

JoAnn fabrics ran out of my favorite 1 1/2 in. webbing and didn’t restock if for several weeks. So, I made my own straps from canvas using this method.

This bag is made from a gray ikat fabric from the home decor section of JoAnn fabrics. I actually made two of these in gray, and one in the cobalt blue colorway of this fabric. I used a less stable webbing because that’s what was available. It’s definitely strong enough to hold the weight of the bag, but I prefer the stiffer webbing or interfaced fabric so that the handles will stand up.

We truly take our water bottle bag everywhere! It is so much easier to keep the kids hydrated with water on-hand. We used to bring the water bottles everywhere, but they would end up rolling around the van or inevitably, someone would forget to grab their bottle. The bag keeps the van organized (maybe that’s being too generous…it keeps the bottles organized in the van, but the rest of the floor is as messy as your van 🙂 and the water bottles accounted for.

Not only that, we save a ton of money by not buying bottled water when we are out. We’d be spending $10 every time we needed to stop and get drinks for everyone!

Many people have suggested that this would also make a great bag to transport baby bottles to daycare.

And even if you don’t have kids, it’s perfectly sized for wine bottles or other glass bottle goods from the market. So make one and take it along with your other re-usable shopping bags to protect and organize your glass items!

  1. Sara, I love both of the fabrics you used on these bags. And the pattern matching! Wow. Nice work. Thank you for agreeing to be part of Parcel #3. 🙂

  2. Judy Ransford says:

    This is a great bag, I’ll be getting this parcel because of it. I’ve been looking for a gift idea to use a favorite print from Spoonflower, and this is the perfect solution. How do you think this would work with Spoonflower’s Heavy Cotton Twill?

    1. Sara Curtis says:

      Thank you! Yes, Spoonflower twill will work well for this bag. I used their twill for my Retro Rucksack bag. The weight is just right for tote bags and it should hold up to light machine washing.
