Sponsored Project - Wool Felted Coffee Cozy from SpottedCanary.com

Wool Felted Coffee Cozy

Designed by Holly Craft

Create this practical coffee cozy and decorate it using Dimensions Felt Works wool roving and needle felting tools.  Keep your coffee warm and your hands cool and save cardboard sleeves from going in the landfill!  Personalize it with your own decorative design or even add a monogram for a personal gift!

  • Dimensions Felt Works Felting Needle and Foam Block: 73357
  • Dimensions Felt Works Wool Roving (White/Black 73296, Ivory/Nutmeg 73286, and Denim/Midnight Blue 73292)
  • EK Success Honey Bee Scissors: EKCB06
  • Green embroidery thread
  • Needle
  • Wool sweater that has been wet felted


1.  To felt the wool sweater, wash it in the washing machine and dry it until it has the texture of felt.

2.  Cut off the end of the sleeve, including the cuff.  Place the foam block inside the sleeve and create your decoration using the wool roving and the needle felting needle.

3.  For an extra hand hold, roll the sweater down one roll and stitch with thread to secure it there.

4.  Use the coffee cozy as insulation on throw away cups instead of the cardboard sleeves at the coffee shop.

5.  If you are creating a cozy for a mug with a handle, you could simply cut a slit where the handle can come out or make a closure with buttons, Velcro, etc.  The same concept could be used to make a wine cozy, can koozie, etc.

nice project -

however it is not "felted" this is not even knit felt because one can see the knit stitches.

 It has not been wet felted  - it is shrunken/ fulled knit

This is a shrunken sweater, recycled project with needle felted embellishment.

whatever word you use - fulled or felted - it is wool that is matted upon itself in some way or another and it looks great!
the needle felted embellishment is adorable and the colors are perfect together!
I should make some more of these since I seem to have either left mine at school or just misplaced it.
