Gettin Cozy

So, as stated in a preivous entry, i’m currently on a Crochet kick.  My crafting tends to run in trends–so this won’t last forever.  In fact im already working on my next trend, so i know this is the end of the crochet fever for a bit.  But it will return.

In the past two weeks, though, i indulged in the one item for which crocheters are known: Cozies.  If it can be covered with a pattern of single crochet, someone with a hook and yarn will do so.

But no wanting to be trite, i tried to put a spin on things…

Apple cozy (not my pattern) Angry apple cozy really.  with a porn stache, as all apples should.

Can & bottle cozy–you know, for that next nascar event.

nothing hides a Pabst better...

(you’ll have to pardon my hand embroidery–it’s not my strongest craft.  unless the words are traced on there–which they weren’t–i’m not always straight or spaced well.  Adds to the charm)

And my personal favorite–mug cozies.  Shockingly, these actually work well–my coffee stays warmer longer than expected, waiting patiently next to my desk while i waste time looking at pinterest pins. (which is where i got the mug cozy idea in the first place)

if you don't get it, you're obviously not a bowler.

didn't quite make this one wide enough...

I like this one because this is my favorite mug, but, frankly, it’s ugly.  I like the size & shape, not the stupid Santa Claus on it.  SO if i can cover it with something snarky, SO BE IT!

And lastly–for my bloggy BFF Jill–I’ve been toying with this idea since i started the mug cozies. Since her profile pic is a line drawing…

that's real embroidery there...

And yes, Jill, it’s yours(sans mug) if you send me your addy–or a secret PO box if you think i’m a stalker or some shit… (heh heh heh)

Now that i’ve gotten that out of my system, i plan to move on to my next project, involving Dia De Los Muertos.  It’s a long term project, so y’all will have to be patient for that one.  In the meantime, i’ll prolly post some studio stuff soon…

    These are pretty amazing. Especially the pornstache. What apple doesn’t need a pornstache?
