cozy up to a cup

I love alliteration. I also really like multi-functioning things. The coffee cup cozy cuff fits both categories. It saves paper, it keeps your paws from getting scorched, and you can wear it. So simple, yet so brilliant.

I've seen knit or crocheted versions, quilty fabric versions, even pricey $70 wooden ones. You can make one with your own little hands if you're so inclined.

Try it!
Here are some patterns in various media:

Buy it!
If you're not crafty, or just don't have time to make one for yourself, here are some you can purchase with money:
