Hand Sanitiser Cozies

With the world returning to a state of "normalcy" after COVID-19 there are certain changes that will be sticking around. For example the consistent use of hand sanitiser on pubic transport has become essential for commuters, especially those in the high risk categories like myself. Easy access to hand sanitiser without digging through (and potentially contaminating!) my bag is important. To solve this I have developed this easy clip on hand sanitiser pouch. The pattern has just been released on my Ravelry page and you can buy an add free pattern for the frog version here. To celebrate the release I am sharing the base of the pattern for free on my blog.

I have tried two different methods. I think I prefer the second stove top method over the oven process, but both will work.
