How To Make A Mug Cozy

1. I made my mug cozy out of a felted wool sweater. You can use an old wool sweater, or find one at a thrift store.

You turn the wool into felt by washing it with very hot water in the washing machine, see the whole tutorial I shared a while ago here.

The beauty of felted wool is that just like regular felt, the edges won’t fray after they’re cut, making this a really simple project.

2. I made a long strip that would fit around my mug, and tapered the end to fit through the handle.

Then I sewed a pretty old mother of pearl button on one end and made a snip for a button hole at the other. It’s that simple. I love how fuzzy and creamy and soft it is. So pretty.

3. Of course I had to guild the lily. Years ago I saw this saying on a magnet and thought it would be perfect for this project… and it’s true. 😉 “Where there is tea, there is hope.”

I used a little piece of cotton material, and my alphabet stamps and stamped it in black ink.

Then, I added a little embroidered pink heart to the corner.  Because if you’re going for cute, I heart hearts.

I used some pink thread in my sewing machine to stitch the fabric to the mug cozy.
