Coffee Cozies

How stinkin' cute are these? I was inspired by Catherine Cote's blog and knew I had to make some for myself! I went to Starbucks and grabbed a cardboard sleeve (around my caramal macchiato) and then used it as a template to cut out the felt. I used my sewing machine to stitch it together. And then....pulled out the Big Shot and cut out flowers from Basket's and Blooms die (thanks Deanne) and the Flower Daisies #2. I also embellished them with the Sweet Pea felt flowers from the Occassions mini catalogue and a few flowers from Flower Fusion (page 180). The bright green and purple cozies are for my girls (Emily made her own flowers on her green one) and I'm not sure who the lucky recipients of the others are yet! I'm loving them all - it's going to be a tough decision which one I get to keep.
