Just a little Cozy

28 comments
With summer months upon us I've been thinking of making a cold drink cozy mostly to hide my well worn drink cup.
The fabric is a cheater stripe so it really didn't take any time at all to whip up a little sweater for my 32 oz. diet mt. dew daily drink.
It kind of looks like a hot water bottle shape. I quilted it and bound it like any project.This is the before picture. Icky, huh! It is clean but well worn. I take it around with me all the time. I hate to even show you the awfulness.
But now the after picture. It is happy and dressed up to use around the house or take along with me and it only took a half hour.

Well...leave it to you to come up with such a clever idea! Might have to steal this one, too! I'll just put it in my "Things to Copy From Nanette" file - which is growing bigger every day! xo, The Other Nanette

That's so cute! I made one for my husband's thermos for his birthday. Done in red and black for UGA (University of Georgia), of course! He loves that thing and it hides the hideous blue.
It is true what they say, "Necessity is the mother of invention!"

Now that is a great idea, I wonder if you used that insul bright (Sp?) if it would help keep it cold?
