Pencil Me In Cup Cozy Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Pencil Me in Cup Cozy crochet pattern will forever hold a special place in my heart! Being the first pattern I published, it really is special!

Having 7 children, means you have A LOT of teachers each year! I designed this pencil cup cozy for JUST that purpose! These pencil cup cozies, were quickly a big hit our children’s school.

Teacher Gift in a Pinch

If you find yourself, repeatedly at Christmas and the end of the school year, trying to figure out a unique gift your child can bring their teacher, this pattern can definitely help solve that for you.

I imagine, much like myself, it’s generally about three days before I NEED a teacher gift – that I remember I NEED a teacher gift (or several!). Which is why I looooove this pattern so much! It’s different, fun, and themed! Your child’s teacher, who I will presume, after dealing with a class full of kids everyday survives off coffee (or tea I suppose), will adore the gift that just encourages more coffee drinking! In my humble opinion, it is also way more fun than another apple!
