Trust me. You do.
I was sitting in the carpool line, chatting on the phone when it hit me: tonight is Kate's last piano lesson before Christmas. We need a gift. Now!
We drove straight from school to Starbucks where I bought each of the kids an after school treat and a gift card for the piano teacher. I came home and retreated immediately to the sewing room and whipped up this coffee cozy. It took less than a half an hour, start to finish. Granted, my machine is set up, the pattern was at hand and I have made dozens of these so I don't have to look at directions. But picking out the button and then sewing it on by hand easily took 7 of those 30 minutes. Fast, I tell you!
The pattern is here. It makes a great gift for just about anyone: teachers, babysitters, dog walkers, paper delivery people and on and on. Making them assembly line works really well, too.
What are you waiting for? Go on….get sewing.
