Note: You may adapt this tutorial for other materials instead of intrecciato weave fabric.
Measure dimensions of the water bottle, top circumference, bottom circumference and height.
Draft out the patterns on the papers, add 1/2″ seam allowance.
Prepare the 45º crossed grid lines to weave fabric strips as per Intrecciato Weave tutorial.
Trim away the seam allowance from the paper pattern after the intrecciato weaving.
Trace seam lines on the wrong side of the woven pieces, both body and base.
Mark straps positions.
Sew twill tape (near to the edge) on the right side of the woven body, 1/4″ above the top seam line.
Sew 1/4″ from the seam lines around the body and base seam allowances, just to stabilize the weaving ends.
Fold the twill tape to the wrong side, top stitch the bottom and center of the twill tape.
Sew straps to the marking, or if you have connectors, sew them on.
Fold the body into halve with right side facing each other. Join seam.
Wrap both raw edges together with twill tape to make a bound seam. Since the raw edges are quite thick,machine sew if possible, otherwise hand sewn it.
Pin base to the bottom edge and sew. Bound seam the raw edges just like the side seam of the body.
This is the completed wrong side of the woven water bottle holder.
Turn it over. Sew strap to the paired connectors if haven’t done so.
