You know those super cute mug cozies you see on Pinterest? The ones that people knit and crochet? I really love the way they look, but I’m not a huge fan of that creative process. Maybe it’s just because I don’t do it enough, but it kills my fingers.
Anyway, I wanted a mug cozy, but was trying to think of a better way to get one. Of course, my solution is usually to make it myself. I went to the Dollar Store to see if I could find some nice fuzzy socks, and they turned into a great alternative to the knitted cozy.
This might be the easiest craft I’ve ever made a tutorial for, so if you’re looking for quick and easy, this is it. Look no further.
Cup Cozy Supplies
- fuzzy sock
Step 1: fit the sock to your mug
Set your mug, jar or whatever you drink out of into the sock.
Step 2: cut the sock appropriately
Cut the sock just under the lip of your mug.
Step 3: fold down the top of the sock and sew
Flip your sock inside out, fold down the section you just cut and sew it in place.
This area will be prone to fuzzies, so we want to eliminate that.
Shake it out, slide it back on your mug and you’re done! I love these so much because I drink a lot of tea/coffee in the winter, probably to keep myself warm in the cold Pennsylvania weather. I can hold my mug without burning my hands but it’s still nice and warm. I guess that’s why they call it a cozy.
Go get your beverage of choice and enjoy the warmth.
I’d love to hear what you think. Are you going to try it? Leave your feedback in the comments.
