5 inspirational hot water bottle covers

Here are some gorgeous hot water bottle covers for inspiration if you are looking to create something for the Opendrawer Hottie Challenge.

1. Fox knitted hot water bottle cover

If only I could knit!

2. Toothless hot water bottle cover

My daughter loves dragons, she would kill for me to make this hottie cover.

Love these PDF patterns for hot water bottle covers, they have a lovely range. However, I haven't tested their patterns. The Sarah the racoon is my favourite!

4. Crochet Grannie square hot water bottle cover.

Foxes Lane has a great tutorial on making a Grannie-hottie.

5. Mushroom House 

I love the feel of this hot water bottle cover.

Opendraw Hottie Challenge 2018

It was welcomed news last night to see that OpenDrawer in Camberwell are holding another hottie challenge.

 OpenDrawer Hottie Challenge 2018

In 2011 I participated in their Hottie Challenge and I am seriously thinking of doing it again, it was such a fun process and event to be part of.

Entries have to be submitted by the 31st May and there is a $10 entry fee. Money raised will go towards SisterWorks, a non-profit social enterprise supporting women who are migrants, asylum seekers or refugees to become financially independent and happily settled in Australia.

So if you are interested in a quick crafty project this weekend, knock up a Hottie and support OpenDrawer and SisterWorks.
