You got yourself a DIY fleece scarf and blanket now. What’s next? Courtney is back to walk you through making your own fleece mug koozie! Because don’t we all secretly want to something cute for our coffee mugs? Beer cans can’t have all the fun. 😉
This is our third article for DIY fleece projects. Continue reading to learn how to make your own DIY fleece mug koozie. We will make two mug koozies in this DIY guide.
Let’s get started!
We don’t have just one mug koozies; we’ve got two for you! Get thee some scraps of fleece fabric: they don’t have to be very big. The first step will be to trim the fabric to the height of your mug and no more. Too long and it could fold under your mug when you set it down and cause it to tip.
The biggest difference between these two koozies is how wide your mug handle is:
- The first option works well for mugs that don’t have very large handles, which means the koozie will need to go over the handle.
- The second koozie is for mugs that have larger handles, which will allow for the fabric to go through the handle.
Place the mug handle through the slit and wrap the fabric around the mug. This will help you see where in the fabric it will overlap the handle.
Cut a second slit in the fabric over the handle.
Place the mug handle through the second slit as well.
TIP: If your mug koozie comes too high up on the mug, you can turn down a side so you’re not sucking fleece. Ew.
For your second option, make sure the fabric strip is slender enough to fit through the mug handle.
Cut a vertical slit in the fabric about two to three inches from an end.
Wrap the fabric around the mug, through the handle, and thread the opposite end of the fabric through the slit you created.
Wrap the ends around until they meet and tie them together.
Aren’t both of these guys adorable? And they’re machine washable, so you don’t even have to worry about coffee or tea stains!
