Mason Jar Cozy
I have to confess! This Mother’s Day creative idea is right up my alley and came about as a solution to a problem. I drink out of a Mason Jar with a Mason Jar Sip and Straw Lid at work. The only problem with drinking out of the Mason jar is that the contents don’t stay cold as long as I’d like.
So, I did a little research on Pinterest to see what kind of inspiration I could find for making a Mason Jar Cozy. I found these cozies from I Heart Nap Time and A Pretty Cool Life and I also liked some that I saw that had a button closure.
So, I decided to use a little of both ideas and come up with my own pattern. This was my first attempt and I wish I had allowed for an overlap of the fabric. I was a little concerned about adding unnecessary bulk, but now that I’ve made the cozy, I don’t think the bulk would be a a big deal.
Also, instead of using Velcro, like the cozies from I Heart Nap Time, I used elastic and a button. I have a thing for buttons and anytime I can find a way to incorporate old buttons into a project, I’m a pretty happy girl. I made my Mason Jar Cozy out of some scrap material I had and insulated batting that I purchased from JoAnn Fabrics.
