DIY Bottle Holders - 12 pcs.
Kids loved these!
We used fabric markers to color these and the kids really enjoyed making them and carrying out a water bottle in them. We did notice that some were "shorter" than others but this wasn't a problem. They supported our VBS mission which was providing water to those who don't have it. Also, I tested one in the dryer for 30 minutes to see if we could "set" the fabric markers and it came out undamaged.

Better than expected
I bought these for my son's destination Metro bday party as giveaways. I wrote each kids name on it and had my son draw a picture on the back and placed a water bottle in each one for the kids to carry on the metro. It's a perfect size for my 4 and 2 year old kids. They loved it!

Nice holder, bad strap
Thought the DIY Bottle Holder would be a perfect project for a summer nature camp. Holder itself was fine, but the nylon strap was so short that even the kids could not get it around their neck and under their arm--it jammed bottle up in their armpit! The whole point of a bottle holder is to have your hands free and provide ready access to the bottle. Sadly, this one did not fill the bill and needs a strap almost twice as long. Oriental Trading was great and did refund full purchase price promptly.

these were perfect for a camp out themed birthday party....the straps are a little short for an adult, but over all a good purchase!
i washed these in hot water to shrink them up a little, and added a strap lengthener for the adult guests, but they will be perfect favors for my son's party.

great project for first graders
We purchased these canvas bottle holders for a large group of first graders. The children loved decorating them with the fabric markers. We also used permanent markers which worked just fine. Once the girls got their water bottles and swung their bottle holders over their shoulders, it never left their sides. They were so proud.

I got these for my son's camping party and they were a hit. I always like to have a craft and as they get bigger it's hard to find a cool enough craft. The boy's had fun decorating them and then using them all evening.

We did these as a craft for a class party. We used fabric markers (which is separate from this product). These bottle holders were not only thicker than I expected, but they were also lined. I expected to need to put cardboard in the middle to stop bleed-through, but they were thick enough that this was not necessary. The only complaint is that they were a little bigger (around) than I expected, but at was actually a positive to many kids. Several other parents and the teacher all commented what a great classroom craft this was.

good idea not consistent quality
Great idea. we were trying to eliminate taking a large water container on field trips. A third of the carriers needed the strap sewn back on.
