Coffee Cozies and Coffee Sleeves to Make and Use

Updated on September 23, 2014

Laura likes retro, vintage, old things. Choosing to preserve or repurpose is her dilemma - can't change your mind once started.

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.

      They can turn your coffee break into something a bit special. I've never gotten the hang of knitting but this would be a simple project to take on with knitting. Even if I mess it up, it should still work as a cozy.

      These are simply adorable. I've had a few things like these to go to school in the morning and I almost feel like they're an accessory of sorts.

      They should be simple, something you can make over the weekend, even a weekend with the family around. I want to find polka dot fabric and trimmings. I'm going to go looking for supplies this weekend.
