DCL Online: Felted Cup Cozy

Dakota County Library - Online

Whether it's the season where your iced tea glass has condensation running down the sides or you want a cozy wrap around your warm coffee mug. Make a reusable felted wool cup cozy to catch the drips or protect your fingers. Using just wool and soapy water, we’ll make a ring of soft, sturdy felt fabric and fit it to your favorite cup. You will need to provide some soap and warm water (dish soap or liquid hand soap works great) and a couple of small containers for this class. All other materials will be provided for the project including wool roving and a felting mat. Materials kits will be mailed to you or are available to pick up before class. You will need the tools in the kit, so you must have a materials kit to participate in class.
