CRAFT TUTORIAL: Drink Cozies ~ make your own warm and fuzzy cozies for your fall and winter drinks with this easy project, no special skills required. Your mulled wine or cocoa never looked so cute!
I promised you a tutorial on these easy hot drink cozies back when I posted my HOLIDAY MULLED WINE. I also promised you they would be quick and easy, and they are. You don’t need any special sewing skills to whip up these cute cozies and they are perfect for serving all kinds of steamy drinks from Irish coffee to hot cocoa.
a few pairs of socks, or singletons from the laundry room. (look for socks that are warm, but not too thick. You can also use the cuffs from old sweaters)
a needle and thread
the glasses that you want to fit the cozies to.
STEP ONE: Fit the top of the sock onto the glass. Pull it up most of the way, leaving a little of the top of the glass showing.
STEP TWO: Cut off the sock, about 1 inch from the bottom of the glass.
STEP THREE: Sew a simple running stitch around the cut edge of the sock, pull it tight and knot it securely. You can see that if the sock is too thick, it will create a bulge at the bottom and will cause your glass to wobble when you set it upright. Be sure to take your stitches close to the cut edge to minimize this excess material at the base.
If you want to make these to fit a mug, just cut a slit in the side of the sock for the handle.
There you have it! These are fun, functional, and cute!
