yes, im getting around to it, almost a month after Christmas. don't hate, people. :)
here we go, DIY #1: Mug Cozy
my inspiration came from the web, but the tutorial I found did NOT work. My tutorial won't be much better (I didn't take many pictures), but at least you know it worked for me, and, therefore, will [maybe] work for you. ;)
What you need:
3 pieces of coordinating felt (mine were purple, yellow, and froggy printed)
embroider thread that goes with the piece of felt that will be on the top
What to Do:
1. Measure the circumference of the part of the cup you want the cozy to go around. My cozy went around the largest part of the mug.
2. Measure a piece of felt about 1in.-1 1/2 in. shorter in length than the measurement you took in step 1 x 3in. Mine was 11in. x 3in.
Cut out the felt and pin the sides.
4. Sew the pieces together however you like. I didn't sew the edges, but rather the middle with a cute pattern.
