If I can make it myself I will (at least I’ll try). A good example is a bottle holder for the pushchair/buggy. Yes I could have bought the standard plastic bottle holder that goes with our buggy, but what’s the fun in that. So instead I had a peruse on Pinterest and quickly came up with the idea to make one from an old jeans. 

I used the top part of a jeans including a front pocket. Also I figured out how to use the button and button hole to make a detachable loop closure to fasten the bottle holder to the buggy. For the lining of the bottle holder I used a sort of plastic fabric combo, so I can wipe it down. I’m very please with the result and because it’s custom made it can hold my bigger water bottle!
