lsc #105 coffee cozy

Hey there!!!
Im still somewhere in the Southern USA.....soaking up the sun and hopefully enjoying some R&R
So ...
in my mad rush to get everything done before vacation...
I got reaaaally sick of papercrafts.
Like poke my eyes out kind of sick!


I've been seeing these coffee cozy things everywhere and I' wanted to make one so I figured what the hell..lemme give it a try

This week's picks by Char were a good jumping off point

I was torn with how to close it- I've seen it as a 1 piece, snaps, and buttons-- I decided to go with the elastic\button one- that way its adjustable for whatever cup I use.

Go have a lookie at the other girls projects...
