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

    Step 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. =)

    Step 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.

    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.
