Hi, Everybody! I know I am late to the coffee cozy party, but I’m finally here! I actually have never been a coffee or tea person….until a year ago. I think I stayed away from these drinks because early on I always would burn my tongue when I drank them. Not fun. So years went by and I mainly drank cold drinks. But, then things changed. My friend, Rita, who drinks tea all the time, got me going on wonderful teas that tasted so good. And, I finally got the temperature right when I made it. (I know it’s not rocket science to do that, but I like to celebrate even the smallest successes! :). ). So tea was my go to drink. Which was really good, because I was a huge soda drinker. Well, the story continues. I still wasn’t a coffee drinker but I met another wonderful friend, named Kate. We talk and work out together and, eventually, started doing daily walks together. Our reward for our long walks has become ending up at one of the various lovely, local coffeehouses, “5th and J”, “Nutmeg Spice” or “Lwless”. It was at these great places that I became a fan of so many of their coffees and lattes. So, having joined the ranks of those who love their warm drinks, I have decided to make some pretty cup embellishments! So here is my first cozy pattern.
This pattern whips up so fast! You can make one, or many for yourself, for friends, or hostess gifts.
I would love to see what you make. Please post your creations on Instagram using the hashtag #lakeviewcottagekids.
