Crochet a Water Bottle Holder

Posted on August 13, 2008

Recycled Water Bottle Holder

Just in time before Summer is over, crochet this handy water bottle holder from recycled plastic bags or plarn. It has a convenient sling shoulder strap and holds a reusable Nalgene 32 oz/1000 ml or one liter water bottle. This makes a wonderful water bottle holder because the bag is crocheted using plastic bags, you don’t have to worry about it getting wet from the condensation from a cold bottle.

Here is the free pattern link to crochet the water bottle holder.

Enjoy the rest of your Summer and happy green crafting to all!

    Seriously, earlier today, I was thinking about all the damn plastic bags I’ve got that multiply far faster than the trash I put in them–and I do most of my shopping at a co-op where they don’t use disposable bags, even! Nonetheless, they keep multiplying. So…what I’m saying is that this looks great…though I don’t have any crocheting skills….Anyway, it’s great that you’re putting your creativity to a good (and necessary) cause.

    Hmm…although this looks interesting, I think it could be better if I can avoid using plastic materials and replace it with nylons. What do you think? I haven’t try it yet but I think it could withstand the weight of the bottle as strong as plastic.

    @ Green Blog:
    The nylons probably will work too for your water bottle holder. I don’t have access to nylons and get lots of plastic bags given to me for recycling purposes. I even have Internet friends send me bags that they want to see upcycled into new usable products. I enjoy the challenge of recycling many different materials so I look forward to hearing how your nylons work for your holder.

    Excellent idea and I think that my limited skills could manage this. Hope all is ok with you.
    Best wishes.

    Question? Can I use other plastic bags like bread bags for plarn?

    @Sheryl,
    Yes you can use bread bags and other plastic materials to crochet with. I cut the bread bags a bit narrower as they stretch more and are harder to crochet with. I crocheted this bag using bread bags and the same looping method I do with the plastic bags. But experiment with them to find the best method for you.
