Brilliant! I was just at a get together where a gal had what looked like a stuffed animal turtle toy that was a bottle holder. Her little one has some physical issues and this makes it easier for her to grip her bottle. I have a niece/nephew on the way and this has been added to my "to knit" list! Great job!!!

Oh goodness,
Too cute!
I just wish I could knit. I can only crochet (and not near advanced). But I'm sure this pattern has brought so many smiles and giggles from little ones and parents. Great work!
