Coffee Cozy Tutorial and Pattern

Im back again, with yet another tutorial! This time i'm participating in Deanna McCools 12 Days of Christmas Challenge! 

Today on here we will be making a Coffee Cozy! I love coffee, well I should say I live off of Coffee most days as I can never seem to get everything I need to do done! Anyways, these little cuties are great for stash busting and make cute gifts! I'll be throwing these in our families stocking for a quick gift from the heart! 

Lets get started!!!

Materials Needed:
Sewing Machine
Pattern Piece: You can download that HERE
Other Basic Sewing Notions
Batting or fusible fleece
Skinny Elastic

Print and cut out your pattern piece. Pick your fabric(s) and Cut two (2) Mirror Image of the pattern and one (1) batting. 

All my pieces cut out. Now I had SO much regular quilt batting stuffed in my closet from my fiances grandma so I choose to use some of that so that I could finally get some use out of it, but any kind of batting would work or you could use some fusible fleece.  

Grab your elastic and cut it, I cut mine to 4". Fold that in half and place in on top of your first piece of fabric and batting, then lay your other piece of fabric on top of that right sides together. Pin in place and lets get to sewing! 

Sew all around the Cozy using a 1/4" seam allowance, leaving a 1-2" opening so you can turn it right side out. Also I sew over the elastic a few times going back and forth so theres no chance of it coming out. :) Clip your corners and turn right side out. 

Once you have it turned right side out, push your corners out and press really well.

Top stitch all around your Cozy and add a pretty little button and guess what? Your DONE! Easy as pie!!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will sew up lots of my Coffee Cozies for every coffee loving friend you have! Also check out all the other tutorials from the blog tour!!
