DIY No-Sew Hand Sanitizer Holder

Learn how to make an easy DIY No-Sew Hand Sanitizer Holder for your bag, purse, or backpack. With fabric or faux leather, fabric glue, and a keychain, you’ll have your customized hand sanitizer holder in minutes. 

If you’re like me, you’re always losing your hand sanitizer.  I like keeping one in my purse and kid’s backpacks, but they always seem to get lost or shoved to the bottom. That’s why I created this adorable no-sew hand sanitizer holder. In minutes you’ll have a convenient hand sanitizer holder to clip to your backpack or bag. 

Note: This SVG file/ template is sized for 1-2 ounce hand sanitizer bottles. If you’re looking for a larger holder, simply scale it up to fit a larger bottle.

Step 1 – Cut Out Project

If you are going to be using a Cricut machine, download the SVG file HERE. Once it is downloaded, upload it to Design Space and cut out your project following the prompts in Design Space. 

If you are going to be cutting it out by hand, download the PDF HERE. Once you have the file, print it out, making your printer is set to 100% or no scaling. Then, using a pair of scissors cut out your project. 

While I used faux leather, feel free to use fabric or another pliable, fabric-like material.

Step 2 – Attach Keychain

Next, we’re going to attach our keychain to the hand sanitizer holder. Set the back piece in front of you (this is the one with the key looptail). Using Beacon Fabri-Tac, place a thick line of glue at the bottom of the keychain loop.

Step 3 – Glue Together Hand Sanitizer Holder

Now it’s time to assemble the rest of the hand sanitizer holder. Place a line of fabric glue on the left and right sides on the wrong side of the fabric or faux leather.

The littles can attach them to their backpacks and Hubs to his work keys. Mine will be sewn, though…”I sew, therefore I am.” Thanks!
