I love ice. I mean really love ice! I put ice cubes in all my drinks, no matter if it’s warm or cold outside. My obsession with ice runs so deep that I have a table top ice maker that I take with us camping. I must have ice in my coffee every morning.
I like to drink my ice coffee in a glass, but sometimes the glass is too cold or it sweats so I use a coffee cozy. There are all kinds of cute patterns out there for adorable coffee cozies, I don’t know how to crochet or knit. I’ve come up with an even quicker way to make a cute cozy. I use socks! Not just any old sock, but wool blend socks with cute designs. Each fall I buy new socks to replace old ones that get holes. I hate the idea of just throwing out the old socks, so I repurpose them. These sock cozies are so easy, that you don’t need any crafting skills.
DIY Sock Coffee Cozy
a clean sock, preferably a cute design
optional: needle and thread to match
Pull the sock onto your coffee container.
Mark a cut line where you want the bottom of the cozy to be. Add a half inch to the bottom of you want to hem your cozy.
Cut the sock off where you marked it.
If you want a hem, fold under the half inch of the raw edge and whip-stitch it in place.
Pull the cozy over the jar and enjoy your drink!
I use these cozies year around. They are great for insulating water bottles and collecting the moisture on the outside of an icy cup.
Elevate the look of your cozy by adding an applique or buttons. This is a good way to personalize them and give as a gift.
