Because Cups Need to Feel Cozy Too!!


When I finished the wrap I mentioned in this post I had enough of my Caron Cotton Cake left over to make this adorable cup cozy.  If you're interested, the pattern is here.


I'll tell you a secret, I hate finishing.  I hate to sew in ends.  I sometimes skip extra little stitches and slip stitches because I am just done with a project.  But on this one, there is a row of single crochet around the edge of the entire project.  THEN there's a slip stitch row around the top of all those single crochets.  And it's the finishing that makes this cup cozy look really great.  It looks, for lack of a better word, finished.


But of course, I also had to have just the right button.  I found this button when I was rooting through the button table at the Fabric Center I told you about here.  I think it's just perfect for this project.  The button is functional.  There is a button hole on that little tab there.  So the cozy lays flat if you want that.


And there you have it.  If you are on my Christmas list, don't look too hard, you may be getting one of these.

  1. Sewing in the ends is the worst. Cute cozy. I love to use mine in the cold weather months.
