Warm & Cozy

As I've mentioned we always try to make handmade teacher gifts.  My original plan was to make holiday napkins but as the days got busier I realized making 16 napkins (a set of 4 for each teacher) wasn't going to happen.  On to Plan B...

Holiday cup cozies!  These are so quick and easy to make and great for keeping track of your drink.  Last summer Marden's had Insul-Bright on sale for $2.99 a yard. 2 yards sounded reasonable... I think I have enough to make 500 more cozies;-)

Inspired by the hot cocoa print, I made these with some Basic Grey Figgy Pudding scraps.

And I just LOVE these Jingle penguins by the adorable Ann Kelle.
Truth be told, I have a drinking problem... I never go anywhere without a travel cup of tea. Hot or iced, I've got a cup for that and of course they all need cozies.  These were so cute I had to make a few extras for me.  Why not, I've got the supplies;-)
