4th of July Water Bottle Holder

I seriously can’t get enough of these water bottle holders! I love them!  Being hands free at the Zoo, Amusement Park, Water Park, etc. etc. this summer has been priceless! I decided to make some for the 4th of July but “tweeked” my original pattern a bit. I took out the paracord and made a strap to hold the water bottle instead.  It works like a charm! How about you, do you like Water Bottle Holders? What are your plans for 4th of July?
