How to sew a Hand Sanitizer Holder

Materials

  • One outer fabric and one lining piece 3 1/2 by 8 1/2"
  • One outer fabric and one lining piece 3 1/2" by 5 1/2"
  • One outer piece 1 by 3 1/2"
  • 2 Snap fastners
  • 1 Swivel claw clasp

Tools

  • Sewing machine
  • Thread
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Let's start with making the loop for swivel clip. Fold your 1 by 3 1/2" piece in half (longways), open out and fold in the outer edges to this central line, and fold again. Thread the swivel slap onto this thread.
  2. Place this 5" up from the bottom edge of the longest piece, baste into place.
  3. Place the lining fabric on top so right sides are facing.
  4. Stitch down the two ling side and one short side with a 3/8" seam allowance. Trim the corner and turn right sides out.
  5. Repeat with your second pieces of fabric.
  6. Turn in the open edge on both pieces and top stitch to close.
  7. Stitch down the sides and 1/4" in along the base, leaving an opening for your hand sanitizer lid to fit through. Ensure you backstitch at both ends of each line of stitching.
  8. Lastly, hand stitch the snap fasteners into place, I have chosen to put one each side of the closing lid.

Notes

If you chose to use cork fabric I suggest using a walking foot.

    • Cork fabric info: Cork fabric is also known as cork leather or vegan leather because it is seen as the animal-friendly alternative to leather. It is a high quality fabric… Natural Cork.

      Very useful instructions as I’m forever digging in my bag for sanitiser.
