Crochet Strawberry Straw Buddies

How many times a day do we here “Drink your water”? It’s tough for me, but keeping a large water bottle nearby definitely helps! What makes it even easier? Having a cute “Straw Buddy” by your side 🙂

Keep your straw covered from bees, germs, and dust with a Straw Buddy! DIY with this easy free crochet pattern.

I started making these last summer, and they were a big hit. Nurses, teachers, or really anyone who works in an office grabbed them up because they like the idea of having a covered straw when they leave their water bottle sitting around.

Of course, they’re also great outdoors to keep the bees and bugs away!
