Pattern Description:

If we are using refillable bottles, why isn't there a cup holder that will hold them? And at other times, could it hold a 16oz cup of soda? Literally years of research and gallons of juice went into pattern. Hangable from the headrest posts of the front seats, these will hold a 12 to 16 oz cup of juice or a water bottle. The elastic holds up the cups; longer water bottles can be shoved in so they don't topple out (in the cup photo, there's a 20 oz cup, not looking very secure). Make em pretty or make them in camouflage. Stop the needless spilling!

1/3 yd (12" by 12") woven, washable sturdy fabric.
16" drawstring or shoelace
2" skinny elastic (a hair elastic is perfect)
Button (3/4" or 1")
12" boning OR cuttable plastic
Optional: ribbon or webbing for hanging straps

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 4" wide by about 11" tall


  • 1/3 yd woven, washable fabric
  • 12" boning or cuttable plastic
  • button (3/4" or bigger)

We can sew our way out of this! Been doing that for over forty years (my momma started me early). I am most interested in functional and efficient patterns that can be made up quickly that result in items that make life easier and are fun to use. Always up for a design challenge, I'm game for commissions. Let's make something good!
