This bottle holder is designed to be a quick and easy attachable device to
carry a water bottle or soda can conveniently. The bottle holder is made
to attach to a person's belt, fanny pack strap, purse handle, or belt
loop by using a vertical hook and loop (Velcro) fastening strap and a
horizontal hook and loop fastening strap on the bottle holder.
1. The ornamental design for my bottle holder that attaches to a fanny
pack strap, purse handle, belt or belt loop as specified in the bottle
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
My bottle holder came about because I would go to a casino and get a bottle of water while playing the slots and I didn't have any place to put my bottle of water.
I first sewed a band of elastic to my fanny pack, which worked, but the bottle would slip out of the elastic strap and there were times when I had my purse instead of the fanny pack. Out of necessity, I decided to devise a bottle holder that could be used on either my purse or fanny pack.
I decorate the bottle holders with sequins, jewels, and glitter for more appeal to the ladies, and I make the bottle holders plain for the men to attach to their belt or belt loop.
