crochet cup sleeve

I guess most people might call it a *cup cozy* but that just sounds lame to me...even though I usually adore alliterations. Go figure.  This is a simple craft for beginners and youngsters. It's something actually useful they can create.  It can be plain or embellished to your fancy.

My dd made this one, the band is white.  She chose the button and yarn color then I quickly worked up a flower to attach. I like it.  I always forget how much I love making flowers.  They are so simple and easy and super quick to make.  I didn't even need a pattern for that flower.

I like these vintage buttons.  I have a rather large collection of vintage buttons I sort of inherited from my grandma.

Oo! I haven't told you yet, I don't think - but good friends gave me a book on all kinds of different flowers and leaves to crochet. I'll try to remember to bring it to show you!
