My YouTube above gives visual steps of how I made a Cup Cozy with Fleece. They’re great for coffee cups or water bottles…or two other FABULOUS ideas you’ll see in the video above near the end.
Isn’t it so cute? I chose an 80s color that is back, and like, totally, I grabbed it with a spoon!
Two strips of 3.5 X 14 ” of fleece, pretty sides touching (Fleece in plaid or solid on Amazon). Yours may not have a pretty side; sometimes both are the same. That’s fine.
Make marks 2.5″ down on both sides of the top layer so that you know where to stop the curve when you cut the ends.
Fold them lengthwise and cut a curved line from the corner of the folded side to this mark. When you cut it, it looks like a crayon! If your scissors are dull, you may need to do one piece at a time.
Stack them on top of each other again. Pin around, leaving a 3 inch opening along a straight side. Stitch all except for the opening. Then trim around the edges just to remove bulk; it won’t fray-yay! Go, fleece!
Turn it inside out and top stitch all the way around, closing up the opening. That stitching will help it look polished and professional.
Buttons can be expensive and make your cozy cost as much as they do in local shops. Sometimes I find odd buttons at yard sales. But buttons, as well as the material pattern, will help your Cozy be unique to each person. They help you express the personality and mood of the gift.
I absolutely adore these from Wanderlust Bee , and I just bought two. Check her out!
But, if you have 20 minutes and some fleece, try making one of these for someone. This is a great craft for a new sewer.
