Tutorial Tuesday – how to make a mug cosy

I was inspired to make these mug cosies by my mum. On these chilly days there is nothing my mum likes better than walking around her garden with a mug of coffee but all too quickly the coffee goes cold and thus the walk is ended. The solution is a mug cosy!
To make a mug cosy you will need a piece of fleece fabric 10 cm by 40 cm. Some ribbon. A button and a needle and thread.
You can sew this all by hand is you want but I also used my sewing machine.
