Crazy Coffee Cozies

Ok, I may have gone off my rocker on this one.
But I love coffee.  Everything about it.  The smell, the taste, the cups, the cafes, and the cozies.
Yes the cozies.  So I made some, and I like them.  I think they are rad actually.  Yes.  RAD.
And I’m going to use them all the time…because…why not?
Don’t laugh, how can you not like them…hee hee
– – – – 
The idea for these little beauties came to me out of nowhere in Fabricland one day.
I saw faux fur.  I saw sequins.  I saw coffee cozies.
Hilarious!  So here they are in all of their crazy glory!

I must confess, it sheds a little.
But it’s cute.
– – – – 
– – – – 
And fun.  
I’m trying to LIVE life to the fullest, remember?! haha

Why not be sassy when sippin’ tea, I say?

The Sequin Cozy

  • I used about 7 inches of sequin ribbon that I found at Fabricland (it’s about 2 inches wide).  But if you have a favourite mug, or always drink Starbucks, measure your ribbon to fit those cups.
  • Then I lined it with a strip of felt cut to fit.  I used my glue gun to put it all together.
  • That’s it.

The Faux Fur Cozy

  • I measured out about 7 inches of faux fur (and it’s about 2 1/2 inches wide).  Again, if you have a favourite mug or use Starbucks cups, just measure to fit those.
  • I bought 2 wooden buttons, and a strip of elastic tie, for the enclosure.
  • Just get out your trusty glue gun and glue on the ribbon, just long enough that when you loop the buttons together, there isn’t much of a gap at the close.  See picture below…

Doesn’t it just conjure up images of a cold Canadian winter?!

Maybe not practical, but why does everything have to be?

    I just keep thinking about random hair in my coffee with the fur, but the sequins are awesome! 😀

    P.S. This is so weird and random, but you showed up as a no-reply blogger when you left your comment on my blog… I’m not sure what the deal is, but I thought I’d let you know since it’s not like Blogger tells you! : )

    That fur one is sooo funky. I love furry (of course fake furry) things. What fun is that people always ask ‘what’s this?’ 🙂

  • Reply Joan@chocolateandmore January 9, 2012 at 5:25 PM

    These are adorable, Rad really, I can see doing this idea for canned goodies as gifts, something different than the piece of fabric or ribbon at the top. Love it.

    Everything about this is making me very happy today. I do my best to eat off cute and pretty plates, even if it’s just my casual lunch while the kids are napping. Pretty glasses, cute napkins, it all makes me happy. A faux fur cozy for a travel cup? LOVE.
