In order to be a little greener and save some trees, I made each of my sisters a coffee cup cozy last year for Christmas. It was an instant hit. They got compliments every time they went to Starbucks and they kept their cozies in their purses so that they were always prepared for an emergency latte. All in all, my sisters have probably saved over 100 cozies from a landfill by replacing them with this eco-friendly option. This project can also be personalized, monogrammed, and customized so that it is full of personality and as unique as your coffee drinker is.
Embroidered Cork Coffee Cup Cozy Directions:
Download your free coffee cup cozy template.
Trace coffee cup cozy template onto back side of cork and cut with scissors.
Using a white chalk pencil or white pen, draw your design onto the cork. It should be centered on the cozy.
Stitch the drawn design with cotton twine, using a basic backstitch.
To finish, line up the edges of the coffee cup cozy and stitch with cross-stitch Xs to bind ends together.
This stitchable cork can also be used to make custom coasters to match your cozy, or to hand-stitch to a tag as a gift topper.
