Old Sock Coffee Cup Cozy
Normal

Seriously, who doesn't want a coffee cozy? Tea cozy? Beer cozy? When these things first came out I thought they were genius. People were crocheting them left and right on Etsy. I was like, I want one!  But I was not about to crochet that thing.

So I made one ......
out of an old sock.
Well, a clean sock.
But a sock that I only had one of.
Ok, I totally just lied.
I went out and bought a pair of new socks just for this blog post.
WHATEVER.
Love you all.
Xx
 


 

Ummmmm LOVE.
 


 

What you need:
One Sock, Scissors, Needle & Thread or good ole' Bonding Tape.
 


 

Step 1: Measure whatever coffee cup you normally use and cut the top portion of your sock off to fit that cup (make sure to leave one extra inch at the bottom to fold under and hem or tape)
 


 

Step 2: Turn your sock inside out and fold the un-hemmed portion of the sock over with your fingers - about an inch (the end you just cut).
 

Step 3: Sew this end all the way around creating a nice hem .... if you don't know how to sew just use bonding tape (you iron it) EASY.
 


 

Four step picture above for all you Pinterest Pinners. I don't know where I would be without you.
 


 

Step 4: Done! Fit cup cozy on your coffee mug! If it gets dirty just throw it in the wash
.... after all, it's just a sock.
 


 


 

And for all the Dad's out there .... My beer cozy.
