A chocolate, blue bird coffee cozy.
I needed a new coffee cozy for my french press coffee maker.
So I made a paper template out of scrap paper just by
- holding the paper up to the carafe -
- measuring it -
- folding it -
- penciling it -
and then simply just cutting out a basic shape to serve as my pattern.
And then ~ I got out my g hook and started crocheting row after row of simple sc until it matched the height of my paper template.
Notice the little piece I crocheted to the right ... that's where the buttons will go.
Now to dress this up, I figured a cute little cross-stitch pattern would be adorable.
I found this blue bird pattern here.
Using scrap yarn and a tapestry needle I cross-stitched directly onto each 'square' of each single crochet stitch.
Such a perfect combination ...
coffee, crochet & cross-stitch.
