Mason jars are the go-to container for our summer drinks. Now that it’s getting cooler, I wanted to keep drinking from mason jars, but hot drinks make it tricky to hold the jar. So, I decided to try making a mason jar cozy that would allow us to keep using our mason jars for coffee, hot chocolate, or spiced cider.

It works! Here’s what I did:

I made a template that was a rectangle, 3 x 10 3/4 inches. I cut out two pieces of fabric: one piece of cotton for the outside, and one piece of felt for the inside. I sewed the trim onto the bottom of the outside piece, then sewed a hair tie to the side of that piece. I placed the felt over the cotton piece and sewed the two pieces together, leaving a small opening so I could flip it right side out. Once it was flipped, I sewed a topstitch around the whole thing, and added a button. I tried it on a mason jar, but it slipped a little because mason jars are generally not skinnier on the bottom. My solution: glue a rubber band to the inside with E6000 glue. It made the cozy stick to the jar and it didn’t slip. Success!

For the maiden voyage of the mason jar cozy, I made this pumpkin spice latte. It was even paleo. Yum!

    Instead of a rubber band what about a line of hot glue or silicone or even some of that rubber drawer lining sewn to the inside?
