Hot or Cold Drink Cozies Tutorial

There's nothing like surprising your favorite friend with a refreshing cold drink on a summer day or showing up with something hot for them to sip on when it's chilly. The next time you arrive with that special drink in your hands, why not surprise them even more by wrapping it up in a custom cozie that you made yourself. All it takes is just a few small pieces of fabric to create just the right wrap for hot and cold refreshments. Your friends (and your hands) will thank you.
