A cozy cup of tea

Fat Quarter Shop is revisiting their tutorials and invited me to make a cup cozy (or is it koozie!)

A good excuse to open up a mini charm pack of Overnight Delivery by Sweetwater. 

I had so much fun making the first one, that I made another - the second from scraps.

Aren't these fun?

The hardest part was selecting which mini charms to use - I laid them on top of the template as I made my choices.

For the one made from scraps - and these were some small scraps! - I sewed them onto a piece of fusible batting cut to the shape of the template.

You can find the pattern and a video tutorial here at Fat Quarter Shop.  A few other bloggers are making some too - check it out!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I've done something very similar but it's been a few years. We have a church here in town that lets our guild use one of their meeting rooms each week for FREE, and as a way of saying thank you, some of the members make items for the church's annual fall bazaar. I've got loads of scrap fabrics and elastic ponytail bands - guess what one of my donations will be this year. thank you for sharing. :)

  2. Very nice! Having some fast sewing projects like this can really help for handmade gifts with short notice. I'll have to bookmark this one. :)

  3. Just so you know, your links for the pattern/tutorial doesn't seem to work. "Page not found"

    1. Thanks for letting me know. Looks like it was updated and reposted here - I've updated my post too!

  4. Hi Patty! How fun and timely - I need to make something for my SIL annual fair/bazaar. These look like just the ticket! Happy Thursday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. These look very cute (and functional). They would make great stocking stuffers.

  8. Oh, Patty, these are great! Thanks for showing us!
    It’s been on my “to do” list for ages to make one ..... I love the version you made from the charm pack ..... it’s delightful! I can see I need to get on to this, like now!
