Environmentally Correct Project

This coffee cozy was inspired by a Creative Troupe call-out to use Liquitex Iridescent medium in a project, and my recent 120 mile plus two day tandeming adventure on the Hazon New York Ride.  As I love leaves, I decided to create a fall coffee cozy----using the Liquitex Iridescent medium, Liquitex Acrylic paints, and Superior copper-colored metallic thread, which behaved in my Bernina 830.

I have made these before but the velcro is a fabulous idea since not all coffee cups are equal:)

Robin--_Thank you for your comment. I put a long enough velcro strip on that they can be adjusted by about 1/2". It may not look as elegant but it is functional.
