Fox Cup Cozy


I have spent the morning on this pattern, putting off the inevitable….I have to mow the lawn today.  I hate mowing the lawn.

I have been having fun making cup cozies, and you will probably see a few more in the next few weeks.  I have sold a couple in my Etsy store, and they have been getting a lot of views, so I am hoping that they will sell over the spring and summer months.

If you are interested in purchasing a cozy you can find one here.

If you would like a printable PDF of this pattern, you can find that here.

This is an easy pattern and works up in about a half hour.
