The inspiration for this tutorial came like this: So a while ago, Ros linked me this picture on Twitter accompanied by this tweet, “I am sure
@harajuuku will love a furry coffee cozy hehe.”
She was right. I started thinking about coffee cozies and how they could be recreated, perhaps something that could be reusable again and again (save the earth!) — Something I could bring to Starbucks and make me even happier about my coffee fix.
A quick search online proved that many others thought the same. Here are a couple that I really liked but cannot create myself because I cannot crochet/knit for the life of me (that’s where Ros comes in *HINT*)
Creating our version of a furry coffee cozy is really simple though, here’s all you need:
- Furry fabric about 12 x 4″ (available at fabric shops at Chinatown/ Spotlight)
- 2.5″ of velcro
- Sewing materials/glue
- An existing sleeve or the template below
2. After cutting out the template, trim the velcro pieces to fit within the width of the sleeve.
5. You’re done!!!
Delight in your hot coffee or tea and keep your fingers safe! Just looking at my furry coffee makes me happy already. Have a great weekend! :)
