What i've been working on : Hot Drink Cozy


Ella has a big Book Fair coming up next week and, as a member of the PTO, I am a volunteer.  I'll be manning cash registers, donating bowls, helping kids choose books and loving every minute of it.  There is a basket raffle on the family night and each class is in charge of supplying small gift items on a theme for a basket to be raffled.  Ella's class was assigned COFFEE/TEA.  Ummmm...I was stumped.  I am neither a coffee nor a tea drinker! But I ran to the local gas station and bought an empty coffee cup (yeah, they charged my $.60 for it...lame).
I whipped up a pattern and after one failed attempt I made this cute Hot Drink Cozy for the raffle basket. It fits all coffee cups and is reversible.  Oh, and no buttons on the cozy...those buttons drive me crazy.

 This fabric is from an out of print fabric line from Cosmo Cricket, but you can buy more current lines by them here. Their fabrics are adorable!
It's so cute I am going to make one for myself and start overdosing on Starbucks Hot Chocolate this Winter (which I hear is amozzing).  I want to make one more version to work out the final kinks and then I will throw them in my shop for a quick stocking gift!

The steamed milk from Starbucks is incredible. My favorite flavor is a Peppermint Steamer. Mmmmmm! I am pretty sure that it would taste a million times better, though, with one of these cute cozies on it.

Where can I get this pattern from? I'm new to the site and just happened to stumble onto your page. I can be reached at YummyLv@aol.com.

Thank you,
