Another use I saw on Youtube was; Leave the cap on the bottle, cut around the bottle down a few inches from the top. Insert into a plastic bag and secure the bag with a rubber band around the top under the cap.


Now you can remove the cap and use a funnel to pour liquids like left over broth or soup into the bag and refrigerate or freeze for adding to other foods or making gravy.

You can use a 1 or 2 liter plastic bottle to hold string or crochet thread or yarn for needlework. Cut around the middle section of the bottle twice, removing a section to shorten the bottle to the size you need. Sew or glue a recycled zipper around both halves of the bottle. (You can machine sew the zipper if you use a leather or Extra heavy duty sewing machine needle.) Drill or better melt a hole in the lid and insert the end of your tread or yarn. (For melting a hole, a small soldering iron used outside works great.) Place thread or yarn inside and zip up. I like adding a handle to the smaller three size bottles so I can hang it on my wrist as I crochet or knit.


To add a handle, melt 2 holes just a little ways down from the lid, opposite each other. In each hole, insert an end of a washed recycled shoe lace, or ribbon, etc., tie a knot in each end so it won't pull threw the hole, adjusting the length so the holder hangs down a comfortable length for you. If your using these for yarn or large balls of crochet thread, or more than one color you can tie several bottles together instead of hanging them from your wrist. This keeps them from falling over as you do your needlework. Or cut the bottom of 2 bottles sew in or glue the zipper and just used as a container. Here's a link from Pinterest. … 546424812744371/ Be creative!!
