...which is why this french press coffee cozy made it's way to the top of my crafting list this weekend (in spite of all the other projects with deadlines). This has been on my mind to make one since I saw mav's in action last month, and was pleasantly surprised to see that it really does work to keep the coffee warm. That's a very very good thing. SO...here's what I did: I pieced a few of my favorite blue vintage kitchen-ey fabrics into two squares big enough to cover the press, quilted each of those to two layers of cotton batting, sewed those two pieces together, turned it right side out and then used a wide bias tape to 'finish' the bottom.
And of course, it needed a matching oven mitt (based on the Denyse Schmidt Quilts Too Hot To Handle Oven Mitt).
