Supply To Make Hand Sanitizer Holder
I use this mix and match fun foxes printed charm pack, which is precisely 5″ x 5″ squares. Here is the link for you to get more charm packs fabrics.
I also use the thin hair elastic to secure the closure. It is colorful ones, so I can match it with the fabric color I use. You can use any small elastic you have available on hand.
Charm packs fabric packages usually come with the zig-zag edge from pinking shears so that the fabric edge won’t fray. If you use any fabric scraps, you can use a zig-zag stitch, the fray-check liquid sealant, or pinking shears.

How To Sew Hand Sanitizer Holder
Prepare two sheets of 5″ x 5″ charm pack cotton fabrics. If you use scrap fabric, then cut two sheets of 5″ x 5″ squares. Cut the ribbon into two of 1″ each and use the lighter to seal the raw edge. Cut the elastic into 4″.
Sandwich the fabric with this order, the wrong side of the first fabric sheet facing down, elastic, and the second fabric sheet’s wrong side facing up.
Position the elastic about 1 inch from the edge. Sew the fabric to secure the elastic. Turn the fabric around, so now you have both of the wrong side fabrics facing each other.
Fold the ribbon in half, then pin it with the ribbon’s raw edge is aligned with the fabric edge. Fold the fabric half sideways.
Sew along the raw edge. If you use scrap fabric, then trim the edge with pinking shears or apply fray check sealant. If none available, then use a zig-zag stitch.
Sew the button about 1 inch below the opening. Insert the hand sanitizer, loop the elastic, and secure it on the button.
Attach the keyring on one of the ribbons. The hand sanitizer holder is ready to use by attaching the keyring into the lobster clasp ring.
This pouch is fit for a 60 ml sanitizer bottle. The two different ribbon positions will give you the option to hang the hand gel holder upright or upside down.
If you use the ribbon on the top to attach the keyring, then the bottle will be upright to prevent leakage in case you forgot to close the lid.
If you use the ribbon on the bottom to attach the keyring, then the bottle would be upside down make it easier to squeeze the gel out of the bottle.
But I am sure it would be fine if you are using the spray bottle one, whether it is an upright or upside-down position. And to be honest, my kids and I like the spray bottle better than the gel one. How about you?
This picture above shows you how it looks upright and upside down when I attach it to the backpack.
