A few blog posts ago, I posted about making prizes & gift baskets for camp.
The golfing fundraiser was a success, apparently bringing in about $2000 for the camp after expenses.
My husband home-roasted coffee and I created these coffee cozies for our donation to the cause.
I found the basket at a second hand store, and we calculated the entire expense to us at about $15. Not too shabby considering we could probably sell a basket like this for about $40.
I’ll be posting a future blog post for the coffee cozy pattern I used, but for now, I’ll just link you to Ravelry, where any number of amazing coffee cup patterns can be found: Coffee Cozy search on Ravelry.
I stitched a simple golf club and ball on the green-colored cotton yarn, and a simple white heart on the red cozy. There are also French knots on the golf ball to create the textured look.
As I made up the patterns for the golf club and golf ball, I hope that this post inspires you to add embellishments to your crocheted coffee cozies!
The Starbucks re-useable cups were $2 each, and have made a great gift for teachers who love coffee. I’ve given several of them away to our favorite teachers.
One more thing I want to show off is the cute little hat I donated to the charities “for sale” table that they have up at events. Its’ a beanie with ears. I used a simple hat pattern from Ravelry, and stamped up a cute little tag to go with it using my Mason Row click stamps.
