hoodie upcycle, part deux: coffee cozy

Hi there, Hoopdeedoodles!  (do I sound a little like Flanders from the Simpsons?)

Thanks for all of your kind comments regarding last week's project, where I cut up my beloved gray hoodie to make a cute makeup bag.  But there's still a lot of hoodie left, and I can't give it to Goodwill now..

So I decided to challenge myself to use up as much of it as possible!

This week, I made a super-cute coffee cozy!

Maybe it will actually protect my hand from those screamin' hot cappuccinos I prefer, unlike the cardboard sleeves.  Oh, and it's good for the environment and all that.

Using pinking shears, I simply cut off the sleeve just above the wrist.
Then I added a flower made of knit scraps - soft and stretchy.

Easy as pie.

and check me out, I was featured over at Humble Homemaking!

{ironic, to brag on myself about being featured as humble, dontcha think?}

Have a wonderful weekend!
Pin It!
