What is it!?
It's a wine cozy!
A friend gave me a little wine cozy her friend made her and she thought I could figure out the pattern from hers. Sally thought I'd like to make some too! I forgot to take a picture of hers but they all look the same.
Well, I didn't need another project but I thought I would at least see how the bugger was made so that I could make one when we got home.
Once I turned hers inside out and saw it was easy to do I couldn't wait! I made one within 20 min. yesterday! I didn't have a lot of scrap fabric to use but isn't it clever! Now I want to get some fabric and make lots of these! Nice house warming or hostess gift!
I started off creating a circle template from an old cereal box (sometimes we revert to our past traditions don't we!). I had to turn Sally's cozy inside out and I figured out it was only 5 circles!!
And you only sewed once around!! So quick and so cute. This was the back....
And here you go! all I need is to fill up the glass with wine! Which I think I'll do now!!!
