bottle holder

New York, New Yo...






we used nalgene plastic bottles for years, then the whole bisphenol A scare came out… decided we are glass people now. so, i bought these haute-couture water bottles for hubby n me, and came up with this cozy to protect the glass from the many spills i manage to produce. after the initial second mortgage to buy one of these bottles, you’ve got a green health friendly vessel (perhaps to put in your charlie bag?)… and the cozy makes me want to drink water :)

    I like this idea and may steal it, having banished all of my plastic water bottles as well. And I know exactly what water bottle is underneath – whew, are they expensive!

      steal away! and yeah, those voss bottles are ri-donk-culous. after breaking two, a friend working at a restaurant started bringing us empties (after assuring us they were used as carafes only), so for awhile we had about 20 of them…

    This is wonderful. I use yo-yo’s for jewelry and hairpieces for my daughter. I will definitely use this idea! Thanks for sharing.

    many thanks everyone!

    emilykate, i did a little google search myself, cause i know i butchered the spelling on that word… fixed it! it’s bisphenol A, and here’s a usa today article on it: http://www.usatoday.com/money/economy/2007-12-23-3665749850_x.htm

    everybody’s got different opinions on which plastics leach it, but it seems they find out some new chemical is morphing into our lives every day so i decided to just go with good ole glass:)

    thanks everyone! nehmah, this has only brought trouble for me. it has encouraged me to go to dance class.. hiking… when will the horror end?!!

    kristen, it is sooo easy, i could definitely do a how to. after you make your yo- yo’s in varying sizes, you basically sew it right onto the bottle to get the shape of it.

    bathina, i hope the inspiration means i will see one from you:)

    Oona; that is grand! Not only is your handwork nifty; you are green. Good for you. Watch the water drinking; one never knows where such alien vices like water drinking will lead. Nehmah
