Crafts

Instructions

  1. How to make a mug warmer. Make A Cup Cozy! - Step 1 1

    Go to Starbucks. No really. This step is non-negotiable! =P While there, pick up your favorite hot beverage, and two of the cardboard hot sleeves. (I grabbed an extra in case I lost mine) =) Drink your caffeine and feel crafty!

    You should have these three things upon returning home.

  2. How to make a mug warmer. Make A Cup Cozy! - Step 2 2

    Open up one of the cardboard sleeves and lay it out. It's a pattern! Think to yourself: couldn't I have just swiped one of the sleeves and saved 4 dollars? But then how would you see your finished product on a real cup?! If you feel warm and caffeinated, move on to step 3, if not, please repeat step 1. =)

  3. How to make a mug warmer. Make A Cup Cozy! - Step 3 3

    Find two pieces of fabric to make your cozy with. Lay them on top of each other, and using your cardboard sleeve, cut around them. Leave about an half-inch or more for seams.

    You should now have this.

  5. How to make a mug warmer. Make A Cup Cozy! - Step 5 5

    This cozy is reversible. Embellish one, or both sides. Remember to stay away from the edges because we will be sewing these soon and they will disappear. I spelled out "hot" on mine =)

    After you are done embellishing, place your two pieces, right sides together in a sort of sandwich.

    Sew most of the way around, leaving one end open so you can flip it right-side out.

  10. 10

    Sew all the way around the top of your cozy, on the front. =)

  11. How to make a mug warmer. Make A Cup Cozy! - Step 11 11

    Wrap your cozy around the cup (see I told you you'd need it!) and pin one edge over the other. Sew down on top of the stitches from step 8, making a circle.
