Convertible Coffee Cup Cozy

So here is the idea behind my newest design, the convertible coffee cup cozy. If you live in America then chances are you are sipping your morning joe out of something that looks like this:

A fairly standard size and shape that is consistent across most brands. If you live in Europe, however, you are most likely doing your shopping at the easiest and cheapest place: Ikea. Unfortunately, Ikea rocks a different style, so your cup can look like any one of these: 

And the cup you use at home could be vastly different from the cup you use at work. So I thought why not make a cozy that could cover a multitude of sizes and shapes. Thus the convertible coffee cup cozy. 

If your cup is large, you can just use the top button, if its smaller or curvaceous (think the middle Ikea cup), use the middle buttons as well for a tighter fit. If your cup at work is shorter than your cup at home (think the first Ikea cup), just fold it down, button it underneath, and you're all set!

I will be making cozies for the "American" coffee cup as well and these are available in any color you can think of in my store, just ask!

Adventures in Hacky Sacks

I get a lot of weird requests through my Etsy store, including one for a pokeball hacky sack. I had to look up what a pokeball was as well so don't feel bad. It turned out to be pretty fun, but as usual since I don't know how to read a pattern I just kind of had to figure it out on my own, resulting in multiple attempts at making something completely round. I started off putting uncooked rice in a bag and using that as a filling, but one of my customers wanted the filling to be plastic beads so he can play with it in all kinds of weather, so I switched to that. It's a good idea anyway since you will probably have to wash it at some point or another since the game is played outside on the grass. Turned out kind of ok : )
