Hello friends! I love the feeling of finishing something that turned out just as I had it pictured in my mind. I've got lots of these swimming around in my brain.
Here is the first.
I adore my french press. The only problem of course is that coffee tends to cool all too quickly when left in a naked press. So a cozy is a necessity for my french press. This one has a pretty pennant banner of some fabulous 1930's reproductions.
Can you get over the charcoal gray wool? Apparently my mom has had a few yards of this folded away in her sewing room, for years. When we were in Montana last September visiting she and I spent some time going through boxes of goodies in her sewing room. It was so fun! She even gave the gray wool to me willingly so I didn't have to steal from my mother. Isn't she wonderful?
I love fishing through my button jars for pretty old buttons. That little red one gives me heart palpitations... in a good way. But of course I have them in a bad way too, all the time, as in all day every day due to my irregular heartbeat. Which isn't fun. And which is also why I'm supposed to drink decaffeinated coffee but don't always because I'm bad. Now I'm rambling, sorry. Moving on.
If you're thinking of making your own french press cozy be sure to get some InsulBrite insulated batting. It is fabulous and when layered with some nice cotton batting it makes for the perfect cozy!
So here's the kicker. As much as I love this cozy, I have listed it in my Etsy store. But that's ok because I plan on making lots more! I also want to make matching pot holders and tea cozys. I'm sure the list will grow as my little brain get's a churnin'.
I hope your week is off to a great start, and that you get to create something that you love! x
