The minute this challenge theme was posted I thought DURIAN! If anything cries, yells, screams out for a cozy, it has to be a durian!
Those spikes are SHARP! So - a durian cozy:
Now the irony ... durians are meant to be EATEN ... after which, they no longer need a cozy:
So .... how about a dual-use cozy? My favorite basket - used to carry my lunch and knitting to work - really, truly needed a cozy as well, as you can see:
Amazingly, the durian cozy fit the basket just perfectly ...
Voila! A BASKET cozy!
(BTW, this was made out of some sort of very rough stiff stuff I bought years ago when teaching - we had to have a craft section and I bought it for macrame. Not sure but it might be hemp.)
Riki in Bangkok, the land of the durian!
