The Loose Leaf Cup Cozy – FREE PATTERN

It’s that bi-annual time again when I was trying to come up with teacher gifts. With 6 kids in school, it needed to be quick and economical while still being special.

After making the Pencil Me In Cup Cozy for the Teachers last June and having such an amazing response from them, I decided on the Loose Leaf Cup Cozy!
