I made these coffee cosies just after the New Year and completely forgot to show you! Mum had requested crochet versions for her and dad for when they're out and about, but I couldn't find a crochet version I liked. I decided to sew them instead.
I chose suitable fabric - mum loves pigs, dad loves Notts County (a football team who play in black and white). They are quilted in a simple grid.
I didn't follow a pattern, I used a cardboard sleeve that I'd swiped from a coffee shop as a template and just winged it. Both are bound and I chose nice big buttons to fasten them.
Mum loves green as well as pink, so I chose green for the inside and binding. Dad got different black and white prints. I sewed the binding on by hand as I just can't do it on the machine and think that those of you who can have special superpowers.
Erm, seem to have taken loads of photos and can't think of anything else to say.
How about a flat one?
