Happy Valentine's Week! 

In honor of Valentine's Day, I've drawn my inspiration from a beautiful Queen of Hearts image I came across online. I've also been catching up on one of my favorite guilty pleasures (Once Upon a Time on ABC) and have been wanting to create an Alice in Wonderland inspired craft. Since I'm more of a coffee drinker than a tea party connoisseur I made a "heart-felt" coffee press cozy!  I can't tell you how much it brightens up my small space. To better fit into the Wonderland world I decided to hand cut and sew everything. This gives it more of a rustic and whimsical look. My stitches went a little sideways at times but that just makes it all the more charming!!

Supplies:

  • 1 light beige felt rectangle
  • 1 dark beige felt rectangle
  • 1 red felt rectangle
  • 1 black felt rectangle
  • 18 inches red ribbon to tie the back all together
  • 1 needle
  • Gold string thread
  • pins to hold everything down

I started by cutting out red and black hearts a little larger than the size of a quarter. I cut one out then used it as a template for the rest by pinning it down and cutting around it.

Next I measured the height of the coffee press and cut the felt rectangle to size. If you buy the pre-cut felt squares, as I did here, there won't be enough fabric for it go around the entire container but that's okay, that's where the ribbon comes into play. I also cut out little notches so the handle can fit properly. But in the end, it wasn't really necessary :P

I pinned down each heart in a row and sewed down the center and all the way down with a backstitch. I removed the pins as I went along and tried to keep the hearts as straight as possible.

I then pinned together the dark beige sheet to the lighter beige sheet then use a whipstitch to sew the top and bottom of the cozy.

I cut six 4 inch pieces of ribbon and pinned them 3 to each side of the felt cozy, and then whipstitched both sides up!

Finally, I tied the felt cozy to the coffee press. It looks so cute!
