Coffee Cozy Teacher Gift

I'm not even going to ask if you're on Pinterest? I know all of you are! It's such the rage these days! The go to site for kids birthday party ideas, what youre going to wear out that night, wedding plans, what youre making for dinner...the list goes on and on and on!!!! Well of course it was my go to site also for this years teacher gifts...normally, I'm really creative, and I like to come up with kind of my own thing, or my own spin on things anyways, but this year just found me, short on time, and as a newly single mom of five, short on cash too! So, here is what I did for this years teachers gifts! A sweet little coffee cozy, that probably took a whole ten minutes to sew up, using all scraps and supplies I had on hand, and the only money out of pocket will be the $5 I will need to buy a coffee gift card! (for the photo I used an itunes one...ssshhhh..you get the idea) LOL! I used this tutorial, which was so easy...and instead of batting, I substituted felt, because i didnt have any batting on hand! So if you still need a gift and are short on time and cash, you may want to check this out! P.S. I tried it out already, and this cozy fit all three sizes of cups at my local coffee shop!!!

These are great my dear for big time java drinkers like myself. We only have one coffee shop up here that gives you these with your coffee and it isn't our #1 shop. I burn my mits all the time trying to drink hot coffee. Good idea Smartie Pants.
