I found these hand sanitizers at the store the other day and you know, it's so awkward to carry them in your pocket. So I took some cotton yarn and a key chain hook and created this awesome tag along holder.
First I chained 5, then made 2 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in the next two chains, completed 3 sc in the end ch and sc in each stitch on the back side, finishing the first round with a sc in the same ch as the first 2 sc (making a small rectangle).

I did one more round for the bottom: 2sc in the first stitch, sc in the next 4 st, 2sc next stitch, sc next 5 and back to the start.

I did the remaining rounds in the back loop only (because I like the way the little ridges look and feel) and then sc in each sc around for about 12 rows. When it was the right height, I made the strap by stopping at one 'corner' and ch 1 turn - sc in same stitch and the next stitch, ch 1 turn - continue with sc in the two stitches until you reach the length you want (18 rows for mine), attach to the other side and finish off.

This is another great stash buster project and could be done in any type of yarn. I used cotton as it was beside me in my project basket and it looks great and works great!

I added the type of key chain hook that opens up (not sure if that has a specific name) so that I can attach my holder anywhere.

How adorable! My students are always toting hand sanitizer (for which I am VERY grateful!), but they lose it all the time! I bet you could find a good market for these.

That is a cool idea. My husband needs his a lot during the day and has no place to put it (he's working outside and with a lot of people), this could be perfect.

Thank you for linking to Super Sunday Sync.

This is excellent! When my son was younger, I would always carry hand sanitizer to keep clean; however, I stopped because it would always spill in my purse or in his diaper bag. This would be so perfect to avoid those spills!

Thanks so much for sharing on Turn It Up Tuesdays! And thanks for co-hosting in November! :)
