Back in the winter I found a pattern online for a coffee cozy. It looked really simple to make and I knew I had plenty of scraps from all my java-themed fabrics to make some. Then I had an even better idea . . . use coffee cozies as curtain tiebacks!
Once I decided on which fabric I would use as the backing for my curtains, I knew that would work well for the cozy tiebacks. Here's what I did . . .
|10 COZY PATTERNS ARE CUT OUT|
|RIGHT SIDE TO RIGHT SIDE|
|FUSIBLE BACKING IS IRONED ON|
|RIGHT SIDES PINNED TOGETHER READY FOR SEWING|
|QUARTER INCH SEAM ALLOWANCE ON THREE SIDES|
|RIGHT SIDES TURNED OUT & PRESSED|
|COORDINATED BUTTONS ARE SELECTED & TOP STITCHING IS COMPLETE|
|VELCRO STRIPS SEWN ON EACH END FRONT AND BACK|
|BUTTONS GLUED ON WITH E-6000|
|WAITING FOR THE GLUE TO DRY ON ALL TEN COZIES|
|FINISHED COFFEE COZIES|
I have seven window curtains in The Coffee Cup, so that means I have three leftover cozies to use for their original purpose. Here's what the re-purposed cozies look like as curtain tiebacks . . .
|JUST THE RIGHT SIZE, SHAPE, & COLOR!|
|I THINK THEY LOOK HELLA-COOL!|
