Purple Minion Cup Cozy

Cup Cozies are all the rage right now. I started making some and selling them at craft shows.  I can barely keep up with my stock.  I started with a basic design and just changing things up to make different designs.  When they started selling like hot cakes I decided I better write down a pattern so I could remember how to  make more!

You are welcome to sell items made from this pattern, but please don't sell my pattern or copy it and claim it as your own.  This is my first time writing a pattern so if you see mistakes let me know.  I know how I make it but sometimes it is hard to convey to others what you are doing!  Enjoy!


These fit a 16 oz coffee cup, on a 12 oz pop can, or on a 16 oz bottle of water!
