Make a Queen of Hearts inspired Coffee Press
I drew inspiration for this coffee press cozy from a beautiful Queen of Hearts image. I've also been catching up on one of my favorite guilty pleasures (Once Upon a Time on ABC) and have been wanting to create an Alice in Wonderland inspired craft. Since I'm more of a coffee drinker than a tea party connoisseur I made a "heart-felt" coffee press cozy! I can't tell you how much it brightens up my small kitchen!

    I started by cutting out red and black hearts a little larger than the size of a quarter. I cut one out then used it as a template for the rest by pinning it down and cutting around it.

    Next I measured the height of the coffee press and cut the felt rectangle to size. If you buy the pre-cut felt squares, as I did here, there won't be enough fabric for it go around the entire container but that's okay, that's where the ribbon comes into play. I also cut out little notches so the handle can fit properly. But in the end, it wasn't really necessary :P

    I pinned down each heart in a row and sewed down the center and all the way down with a backstitch. I removed the pins as I went along and tried to keep the hearts as straight as possible.

    I then pinned together the dark beige sheet to the lighter beige sheet then use a whipstitch to sew the top and bottom of the cozy.

    I cut six 4 inch pieces of ribbon and pinned them 3 to each side of the felt cozy, and then whipstitched both sides up!
