These were all made for a friend's birthday celebration today, but they would make nice, quick gifts if you still need something for teachers or friends.
Kellie of Don't Look Now has a great tissue cozy tutorial. I did mine with Amy Butler lined in linen. This was the first one I made and it was the perfect size - the new tissue pack fit exactly. That's a good tutorial that works exactly on your first try!
My friend specifically asked for a water bottle holder this summer when she saw the others I made. Pink Chalk Studio has a really great, free pattern - and I was super happy with the fabrics I finally chose! I stood in front of my cabinet for quite a while trying to pick out what I thought she would like.
I made this one a tad larger again, so it will fit Gatorade bottles or big waters. The main body is 1" longer side-to-side and the bottom circle is only 1/4" bigger in diameter. The height is the same.
Finally, a group of cute little covered button book marks. She liked all her little gifts!
Now I just have to finish the four teachers gifts for preschool and the 5th grader. I'm loving making them and will share the tutorial link and photos when they're done tomorrow.
