I was considering what to do for a cute and easy sewing gift, and decided a coffee cozy would be PERFECT. They’re simple to make, even for a beginner, and don’t take a lot of fabric.

For mine, I used a snap to close it, but you could also use a button. I like that they are a great way to protect your hands when you have a hot cup without using a disposable cardboard cozy.
