Iron Craft #4 - Coffee Cozy
Well, I don't drink coffee, and I especially don't drink it from paper cups from Starbucks. So when this week's challenge permitted mug cozys, I knew I could get this going.
Mine is pieced from selvages and quilted, with a vintage button (that means I went into my button stash, and the button is likely from some garment of my mother's, because after she passed, my button stash grew by about an order of magnitude. She kept a lot of buttons, and when I took apart her clothes for a memory quilt, I harvested the buttons from her blouses, sweaters and some coats.)
