Christmas Quilt-a-long Year 2 August Lunch Checkin

Today I knew what I was going to do but I hesitated to say as much this morning because after all, without a pattern what if I can't make it work?  I'm happy to say I did figure it out, though I had a couple of head scratcher moments.

The Problem:  No Camelbak Insulated Cover in the Kids 0.4 liter bottle size available anywhere

The Solution:  Made my own
I saw can and bottle cozies in a quilting catalog that came two or three days ago and while I knew the pattern would be the wrong size I was certain I could come up with my own pattern and method to suit DD's Camelbak and sure enough it worked.  I used insulated mylar backed batting and it will be so nice not to have that cup dripping everywhere.

As for the vibrant kitties they match DD's new Iridescent backpack beautifully and she's already talking about how she can show her friends what her favorite animal is.

Personally I'm hungry for a bit of lunch.  Hope everyone is having a good day!

I'm so glad to see new projects from you! This cup cozy is so very cool. I bet your DD loved it!
