Coffee Cozies and Coffee Sleeves to Make and Use
Small Town Girl's Adventures as a Coffee Connoisseur (Keeping it Warm)
I like my French Press coffee maker. I've got a couple of them now. One I take with me when I travel, usually babysitting for my sister. The other I keep at home. It works for the big mug of coffee I like. It's also big enough to make a few medium sized mugs of coffee when I have people visiting.
There is one flaw to the French Press coffee maker. It doesn't keep the coffee warm for very long. If I get distracted while the coffee is brewing, if I don't get there in the required 5 minutes of brew time, the coffee begins to cool off pretty quickly in the pot. Same again for my coffee mug, but I get used to lukewarm coffee at my desk. Not that I love it.
I do have a coffee sleeve which I keep in my purse for those times I get a latte when I'm out and the paper cup is too hot. It's really good when I'm out and using a take out cup.
I didn't have anything for my French Press coffee pot until this summer when I bought a coffee pot cozie from a shop on Etsy.
Coffee cozies and sleeves will give you a greener option to the disposable coffee cup wraps that keep you from burning your hand on a hot mug and keep your coffee from cooling off too quickly.

Making your own coffee cup or coffee maker cozy is a good way to use up some fabric and other sewing scraps or learn to sew or practice sewing skills like embellishments: embroidery, applique and crochet too. Get inventive and have fun with it. Once you have the basic shape you need there are few limits to your creativity.

Spending a lot of time in coffee houses, I see lots of coffee house art gallerys. Some of it is good and some of it is not. I find myself taking a lot of photos of the art hanging in coffee houses. I know this is not my art, but taking photos of it h
