I made this for my organic chemistry professor. After I finished two semesters of o-chem, she met with me during the summer to help me prepare for the Dental Admissions Test. She refused any kind of payment, but I know she has a weakness for fancy schmancy coffee drinks, so I sent this to her.

I made the buttons out of Sculpey (red for oxygen, blue for nitrogen, which is how most molecule model kits represent them). The professor knew the molecule immediately (it's caffeine!).

For the inside of the cozy, I crocheted a simple rectangle that would cover up (and protect) all the embroidery guts, and I sewed that inside. I hope that will make it last a long time.

Thanks for looking!

I needed this back in college when I was immersed in my biochemistry/biophysics studies!!!

I love that you went the extra mile and made the buttons yourself.  Did you seal them at all?  I don't work much with sculpey, so I don't even know if that's necessary.  

I hope that the cozy lasts a long time, too.  This is so thoughtful  Cheesy

It's about as creative/thoughtful as you can get, I'm sure your professor will treasure it even afteri it's all worn out!

Thank you very much! And she totally deserved it, too -- I ended up doing well on the o-chem section of the DAT.   Smiley
