Boring title, I know. Sorry. What more can I say about them?
The one photographer that got TracyKM Designs rolling, requested a water bottle holder for her papergirl, who is always hot but never brings water. The girl likes pink, and Jennifer wanted something that would help keep the water cold. I do think my wool holders work better for that than the cotton ones, but I also use a double walled bottle, so I can't do a fair comparison. I didn't have any wool ones made up, but have quite a few sweaters waiting to be made into more mittens. I also had this funky fleece that I used years ago to make a pair of pants for Meg. She also has a water bottle holder with this fleece.
I have found that my wool bottle holders are not really reversible. On ones done with a woven fabric, I figured it was because it was thinner and not stretchy. So I wanted to use a fleece this time. It didn't have a lot of stretch, but still, it just doesn't sit right if turned inside out. The bottom gets all pouffy. Maybe there's a different way to construct them...stitch in the ditch around the bottom seam to join them? I'd need a tiny free arm though. Perhaps "quilt" the bottom two layers together, but then how to sew them to the sides? Hand quilt together? Anyone got some ideas? I had actually planned to cut the fleece layer a bit bigger than the wool layer, but I think I forgot, and it actually seems the fleece layer is too big. Perhaps the wool got stretched when I cut it...
If it seems all I talk about/show is stuff for TracyKM Designs...well...it is taking up a lot of my time! I just got some great orders that are keeping me busy!! I do however, have a shawl to show you later this week!!
