I was paired with Jen, and from the survey questions she answered, I found out she likes the colors green, purple and bright pink, and that she loves coffee. Based on this, I wanted to make something with those colors. I also found some coffee fabric in my scrap pile and I thought it would be perfect!

So, I decided to make her some coffee cozies. I combined several different tutorials I found because I wanted the cozies to be reversible and have a button closure. Since they are reversible, she has four different choices!

The cozies fit a standard size cup from Caribou or Starbucks (they would fit other cups of similiar size too). I bought a small coffee from Caribou just to be sure! It gave me an excuse to buy coffee! They work great and are much more prettier than the cardboard sleeve.

I had so much fun sewing for Jennifer and I was so happy to hear she liked the cozies!

I had so much fun sewing, but I was also very excited to get my own package. I don't get much mail here at college, so I was jumping with excitement when I got an email saying "You got a package." As soon as I could, I went to the front desk of my apartment and picked up my package.
Kevin sewed for me and he did a wonderful job. I am so happy with what I received!!
It's a little purse/clutch with some of my favorite colors! I love turquoise and green. The outside fabric is not cotton - it is heavier than cotton, but not as heavy as home decor fabric. I'm not sure what type of fabric it is, but I really like it. The lining is black felt.
It is the perfect size to carry with me when I only want to bring a few things and leave my larger purse at home.
It has a very pretty button on it with a closure. When I opened the bag, I found another surprise inside:
A felt tissue holder! It will be perfect to have when I'm at class or out and about. I will have a place to put my tissues and I will know where to find them! I love the flower details on it too!
Thank you so much, Kevin!! I will be using these a lot.
