FO - Can Cozy
Do not... I repeat do NOT over felt the thing..at least with Patons SWS yarn. It was almost perfect so I thought I'd toss it in the dryer for a few minutes..this might have been fine had I not forgotten it for the entire cycle!!! Besides the fact that it's too short, the can won't even fit in it.

Anyway...have a laugh on me. I have no idea what this can be used for now. A doll hat maybe?

We have some Japanese tea cups with no handle. They're small, and they get really hot when you pour hot tea into them. Sorry your cozy didn't work out, but you've given me a great idea! Thanks.

A cupcake holder? A little juice can holder?

Tomato paste!

This post had me chuckling I love all the great suggestions. Especially Ingrid's for tomato paste.... That would make a lovely tomato paste holder. LOL Honestly though, it is very cute and I like the loose change idea, or you could put it in your bathroom or on your night stand for rings, watches, etc., if you wear jewelry and remove it before nighttime. Just a thought. -Ve

Tomato Paste holder.. The change holder might work, but I usually keep it in my purse. My DD2's boyfriend said I could make 3 more and put them under the table legs so they wouldn't scratch the floor.

That's too bad. I'd cut it in two and use it for coasters. It looks to be about the right size for that. Well, it'd be a small coaster.
