Nothing can burn your fingers with these powerful coffee cozies! Everyone knows the problem – the coffee to go is in the cup, but this is so hot that you can hardly hold it. A sweet and stylish remedy we find in these bear cup warmers. They can simply be slipped over any mug, and our fingers are spared from the heat.

Step 1 2

Step 1: Stencils on felt and cut without seam allowance (1 times body, 2 ears, 1 nose / mouth part).

Step 2: Transfer nose and mouth to the round felt using the chalk stick.

Step 3 4

Step 3: Embroider nose and mouth with backstitch and fill in the nose.

Step 4: Then embroider the little dots around the nose with glitter yarn (wrap 4 times around the needle and back off).

Step 5 6

Step 5: Put the nose / mouth part on the body part and quilt all around.

Step 6: Now embroider the eyes with black embroidery thread using the same technique as for the points around the nose (see 4th step).

Step 7 8

Step 7: Stamp cheeks with textile paint. Simply glue a round piece of felt onto a thread spool, paint with paint and stamp.

Step 8: Sew the two ears around each other round edged, then attach to the body part at the top and also sew the body part round edged.

Step 9 Finished

Step 9: Finally, fold over the middle back and stick. Then stitch with a narrow edge using the sewing machine.

    Nice base pattern to enlarge to fit your cup. You can replace the bear ears with bunny, cat or dog ears.
