Here is a PDF of the pattern and instructions on how to make this cute Cozy   Cup-Cozy-Pattern

When I have a quilt on the machine, if there is enough extra backing fabric, I’ll put another piece of  batting and fabric onto the  (extra) backing fabric and quilt it up, usually in a free hand design. Then, when I want to make some Cozies, all I have to do is cut them out!

In the photo below, my quilted fabric is 14 inches wide and about 9 inches long. I am able to get two Cozies from this piece of quilted fabric. The pattern is pinned in place and ready for cutting.


Here are the two Cozies I was able to cut from this piece of quilted fabric.  They are read for the outer stitching, the trimming, and having the Velcro and embellishments applied.


I made a total of four Cozies in about 20 minutes! I gave them to my Daughter-in-Law who is putting them on plastic Starbucks cups and is giving them as gifts to her friends. Below are three of the Cozies, on the cups, on her (very nicely) decorated mantle.


I had these big buttons in my stash, but you could put anything on them as embellishments. How about a silk ribbon embroidery flower? Maybe a Yo-Yo? Use your imagination!

After all that hard work, I think we need to reward ourselves with a hot Peppermint Mocha, made at home, and for a lot less than in the coffee shop.

Easy Peppermint Mocha

Place a packet of instant hot cocoa in a mug. Add instant coffee of choice to equal one cup of coffee. Add hot water or milk to fill mug mostly full. Add desired amount of Peppermint Mocha flavored coffee creamer  Put a dollop of Cool Whip or whipped cream on top and enjoy!

Wishing you and your family and wonderful and blessed Christmas!
