Hand Sanitizer Cozy

Hi Friends,

Ever since I was a kid I have loved the Back To School season! To help my nephew and niece get ready for the classroom, I created a pair of hand sanitizer cozies. These convenient cozies hold small 3 oz containers of hand sanitizer and can clip onto their backpacks or store in their school locker. The cotton material makes them easy to wash when needed. These worked up so quickly, I decided to make a few more as gifts for my teacher friends. As an added bonus, small projects such as these are great stash busters!
