Free Water Bottle Pattern!

I have decided to offer this pattern created earlier this month for free instead if selling it.

The perfect little water tote for your long walks.  You can be hands free by slinging the strap over your head and let it hang to the side.  It even has a place for your lip gloss and is large enough to put your ID and debit card in it for those coffee stops. (This tote holds a standard 16.9 oz. water bottle)
