An easy way to hide or carry a bottle.
I was going to a Renaissance festival and needed some way to carry my bottle from last year. If you buy a bottle, it's only a $1 refill for life. Awesome!

But how to carry the stinking bottle?!

Everyone else had these awesome leather things that attached to a belt. I wanted one! So... about thirty minutes and I had one.

    ~Circumference - Measure around the fat part of the bottle.
    ~Height - Measure from the bottom of the bottle to the top of the thick part and add 1 1/2''.
