30 Minute Project

So, I am a BIG Rachael Ray fan. Who can't respect someone who comes up that many delicious meals that you can prepare in 30 minutes! My job demands a lot of time...and I have a low tolerance for projects that require long crafting times (it takes me FOREVER to finish them because sometimes I only have 30 minutes a day to do my sewing/crafting). Thus, I am a BIG fan of awesome projects that are quick to put together (instant gratification).

This is one of those projects!

Just look at my new Coffee Cozy! It was super simple. I saw a couple of tutorials online (this is my favorite from pink milk and fairycakes) but decided to just wing it on my own. I wanted to make this project quicker (no embroidery, no Insul Bright - the coffee from my coffee stand is not THAT hot). I needed a fabric that was kinda stiff but cute and kinda thick to act as insulation. I raided my stash and found some cute felt squares that I bought on sale. Perfect! It is cute, thick and stiff. Thus, this little gem was born...THE 30 MINUTE COFFEE COZY! What do you think?
