A cozy for my coffee and tea mugs would be great! I tend to prepare a cup and then forget about it until it's cold. Using a cozy might actually give me the opportunity to drink a warm bevvie! Thanks, hob!

I've made these for a vegan cafe that doesn't want to use those throw away paper holder thingys to keep your hands from getting burnt on the paper cup. I made them in acrylic so they were vegan and reusable.
