It's not that he's such a tool guy, but the fabric is just too irresistible for man projects! Truth be told, a bicycle print would have been a more appropriate choice, but I'm sadly lacking in Echino bikes. Cameras yes, bikes no. Hmm, I see an online shopping transaction in my immediate future.
See how easily distracted I am?
Back to the cozy. This was an 11th hour by-the-seat-of-my-track-pants last minute gift completed on Christmas eve.
Hair elastic & button closure
Embellished with machine triple-stitch, which I am likely to do on linen patchwork projects
B put his new cozy to work straight away, and brewed up a Bodum of Christmas blend to enjoy during our family present opening. The fun part was that I forgot to return the bodum to the kitchen cupboard after taking it to my sewing room a few days before Christmas for measurements. He spied it on my table while ironing a shirt for work - he thought it strange, but never considered a quilty project was in the works.
Note to self: it is possible to create gifts right before their very eyes.
