DIY: Quick Felt Coffee Cozies

Do you ever see a picture online *cough cough Pinterest* that just jumps at you?  I mean, there's always really cool stuff going by on Pinterest.  But sometimes certain pictures just seem to pop.  I don't know if it's the color or the project, or just the photography in general, but this was one pic that immediately caught my eye.

Ok, so I love felt, I love ombre, I love coffee, and I love projects that take 30 minutes tops.  And I also love the fact that this project is from a mostly crocheting blog.  Dontcha just love it when people step outside of their crafty boundaries and try something new?  (Along those lines, I might be learning crocheting soon so that I can try some of the projects on this site:)
Yesterday I posted this picture on IG (find me @fancythatnotion) as a sneak peek of what would be up today!
So here is my version of these super easy coffee cozies.  I made nine out of three different colored felts for the ombre look, and they took me less than 30 minutes total.  Like it says on the tutorial, an assembly line process is the best way to go.  And thanks to some Black Friday deals, this cost me less than $2 and I still have extra felt (Shhhhh, don't tell anyone!!!)  Don't you think this would make the perfect stocking stuffer?  I might be including these in some small Christmas packages for friends this year (so if you get one, act surprised;)

Are you making any homemade gifts for Christmas this year?  I would love to hear about them!


  1. Well, I made a minion that's a foot tall. Since I liked it so much,I made a smaller version about 4 inches tall for a white elephant gift exchange. :)

    1. That's so awesome! I have a friend at church who is going to teach me to crochet, so maybe we can crochet and drink coffee together on our coffee date! Oh, and Chase loves minions, so I might need to learn how to make one:)


Please leave a thought or two!
