DIY Coffee Cozies
Last week I shared with you that I went back to a traditional office environment. I thought my crafting days were over however, I soon discovered that even at work, I can find ways to make my day nicer.
My new company gives us free coffee and subsidizes our lunches (yay!). I love free coffee but I really hated that my hands were getting burnt because the cardboard coffee sleeves kept falling off of my cup. While I know I should be using a reusable cup, sometimes you just don't have time to wash the cup!
So I brought the paper cup home and made several until I felt that it was right. This one is actually my second cozy. I lost my first one at work.
Then I started making a bunch of cozies for my co-workers based on their favourite colours. So far, I've made about 8 of these.
Cozies for everyone!
I think it makes the brown cup look better!
But truthfully, I was just happy to be able to get behind the machine and sew something quick and easy.
Somehow, these are all different sizes...
The back is just a simple linen from Ikea
These really are so easy to make and a lot of fun too! There are a ton of tutorials and templates on the internet. I ended up having to design my own because as it turns out, not all paper cups are the same.
Until next time,
