The Fat Quarter Shop's Coffee Koozie Tutorial

I'm not a coffee or tea drinker but I do love me some yummy hot chocolate with a big dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon!  Another hot beverage I can't resist ~ Vanilla Steamers from Starbucks with an extra shot of vanilla! With the autumn months fast approaching, I know I'll be treating myself to these kinds of drinks more often so I was excited to try out The Fat Quarter Shop's new Coffee Koozie tutorial!


I whipped up one Koozie in about 30 minutes and couldn't help but think what a cute (and thoughtful) gift this could be for a neighbor or teacher!  Wouldn't it be great to just show up on a friend's door step (or at the bus stop!) with a warm cup of cocoa and a handmade Koozie!?!


It's inexpensive, handmade and fabulous for using up scraps!  I used leftovers from my new Marbles quilt pattern (fabric line = Rustique by Emily Herrick for Michael Miller).


Be sure to stop by The Fat Quarter Shop to get the free pattern and check out their YouTube video to see just how quickly this little Koozie comes together!

I love to make these. I have made them for years and sold them at craft shows. I had a stack left and donated them as door prizes for my quilt guild. Thanks for the reminder, I may have to make some more. Love your blog!

Love the wooden button Amber - works perfectly with the Rustique fabric. I'm going to have to try one of those Vanilla Steamers!
