            I've also had the same trouble finding koozies with a low enough min that it's worth it to buy.  Also, I wanted water bottle koozies because we don't have a lot of drinkers with us and those who do. drink foo-foo drinks that don't come in a can.  I found three sites that have no mins and have a variety of different types of koozies.  They are a DIY project though.  They are unsewn blanks.  You just use a zig-zag stitch to sew up the sides after you're decorated them.  I went with the first company because they are neoprene koozies (so is the second) and they had the neon pink I wanted (the second didn't).  The third company is a little cheaper, but they are foam instead of neoprene which is really what I was looking for.  The first company has prints available as well if you aren't much into DIY or are running out of time. 

             

            Our wedding colors are watermelon and tangerine, so I ordered both colors.  We have an embroidery machine, so we're going to put a shark on the orange ones and Oahu, Hawaii June 2011 and same wording but a hibiscus on the pink ones.  I might have a cute saying on the other side "To have and to hold and keep my drink cold" It's so cheesy, but I love it.

             

              I'll let you know how they are when I get them in!!

             

            Neoprene fits 12 - 20 bottles $1.80/ea

             

            Neoprene fits 12 - 16 oz bottles $1.49/ea

             

            Foam fits 20 oz bottles $1.40 and down depending on quantity

              GREAT idea~!!! I can't to see the real one.  Do you think the labeling might wear off with the heat and water, etc?? Just a thought.

                    This is such an awesome idea to DIY. I might have to give this a try too, as well also are having a hard time finding a good deal for what we want!!
