Super Simple Handmade Mug Cozie

Wanna know what I'm dying to get my hands on?  Handmade mug cozies!
If only I knew how to crochet/knit! :( 
{hint hint to my girlfriends, who's talent in this department, completely blows me away.  I know you're reading this post}

Since I lack the necessary skills and patience to crochet or knit, I had to come up with my own version of the extremely popular Mug Cozie!

Check out my much simpler version...





Wow, I didn't realize how many marshmallows I threw in, until now!  Yum!





Totally cute, right?  Here's how you can make your own. 

Grab your mugs, old knitted shirt and scissors
Cut the sleeve and cuff off and slide it onto your mug!
It can't get any easier then that!

Hot Chocolate Anyone?


***note***Always check the temperature of the hot chocolate before serving it to little ones
I know this is pretty much a given, but you would be surprised at the crazy emails I would receive if I didn't post this precaution!

Love it. You might also add that you can use the arm of an old sweater if you want that cable knit look. Baby pants might work too. What about weaving in a piece of elasticized ribbon or plain ribbon for the perfect fit?
