How To Make A Travel Mug Cozy From A Sock
Not only does this cover keep your tea, coffee, broth or hot cocoa warm for long it also protects your hands from burning when you hold the mug. So you see the purpose of this mug cover is dual it protects your hands, and it also keep your drink warm.
Here is another best part I love about it…
Not only this is easy to make its ridiculously cheap and also makes a great gift. You can also make this craft and sell it for cheap.
This tutorial is pretty simple and easy to follow, but what I wanted was a cozy cover for a mug with the handle. All the other tutorials include sewing or knitting in it and honestly speaking I’m not good with needles, so I worked on this method that doesn’t include any knitting.
So let’s get started!
Things You Will Need:
- Sock (a long one)
- Iron-on seam tape
- Thread and needle
- Fabric Glue
Measure the travel mug, and then measure the part of the mug for which you want to make a cozy cover. Add one extra inch to the measurement you have taken. I wanted more space because I liked to make my cover a little squeeze.
Now you need to cut the upper section of the sock that is the section that covers your ankle and calf. If the lower section of the sock that covers the foot is long, you can keep it aside as it can make a cozy for a short mug.
Now you need to turn the sock inwards and fold it one inch down of the cutting edge. Protect the seam by using the fabric glue and ironing it or you can even sew it in place. I used the fabric glue so what I did was that I spread the glue over the fabric and the folded the edge, next I place a heavy book on it so that the sock dries and sticks.
Turn the sock’s right side outwards and then fit on your mug.
Bingo your cozy coffee mug cover is ready.
How To Take Care
Dry clean it only, lol just kidding. It’s a sock it doesn’t need dry cleaning you can wash and dry it any time needed.
