Cup Cozy – Valentine DIY

I discovered a new coffee shop last week! 


It’s called Gaia Java Coffee Company and it’s has the best cappuccino and lemon squares!

I made this DIY cup cozy which will go great with my takeout coffee cups from my new go-to coffee shop!

What I love about the Gaia Java Coffee Company the most is that they have a jazz musician every Friday night!

I think I’ll take my hubs there for ‘date night’ this Friday and chillax listening to some jazz, sipping on some coffee, for an early Valentine’s Day date!

Are you doing something special for Valentine’s Day?

  5. Cute! I don't drink coffee, but I think this would make a pretty fantastic hot chocolate cozy :-)

    Where's Gaia Java Coffee Company? I've never heard of it.

    No plans yet for Valentine's Day. Last year hubby and I walked along the canal and had dinner at a place on Somerset. It was fun & different :-)

    1. It's sewed 'in the round' so it's one piece, not sewn in the back. The number of stitches is 36. Glad you like it!

  26. What is the pattern for this? I see the instructions for the mug but not the cup. Also, what kind of yarn - worsted?

    ReplyDelete
  27. The link that is by the pink one leads to instructions for the mug one. Is there somewhere else you have the instructions posted? Soo cute! Thanks!
