I spent all afternoon creating a frame for this kozie only to discover it was too big to fit the kozie. Thanks to Kim for helping me get the frame right & I will use it on another project. Hubs really enjoys flavoured water but doesn't like (nor do I) the condensation on the bottle so I decided to make him his own kozie to fit. What a challenge to figure out what this fabric actually is. I have no idea. I looked up neoprene & it is very costly so I went to the dollar store & bought a zipped bag for tablets & cut it into the shape of the bottle I added the green to the top & sides because I didn't want it to be a plain black & his favorite is the kiwi strawberry so the green matches the bottle too. After all is said & done I like it & he better like it too! lol

You did a fine job! You were clever to re-purpose the bag in to the koozie! I even like the green!

I understand your day. I stitched together on side seams some of these with a patchwork foot which is 1/4 inch and and found the bottle would not fit. Then I used my regular foot and moved the needle position over to get it correct. This foam fabric tends to shift. A walking foot might work also. Jim does want his drink!!

I do worry about ordering online for just this reason & embroidery pulls it in just a wee bit

Yes it fits the water bottle in the first picture that is his favorite water flavor. It could stand to be taller but this will do for the first one. Thanks ~hugs~

Great job, Lor...nice job..but for the future...you had a .Jan file and it is totally resizeable...so if you do him another one...if you need help with sizing...let me know...but this is great!
