quilted french press cozy.

This was a little project out of a cute little book I picked up at my local quilting shop. The book is called The New Handmade. This book has awesome projects for both beginners and the seasoned sewer alike. The examples are made with super cute modern fabrics, I have been enjoying thumbing through it for inspiration. I decided to use patchwork, well, because I love it and I used up a bunch of scraps from my previous quilt. I also used khaki corduroy which is from a nice sized scrap that I cut from an old pair of pants, that I couldn't completely part with.



The cozy is fastened with hook and loop tape that I sewed on, it is really strong and makes for easy removal. Here's hoping for a hotter second cup....
Happy sewing~
