Mason Jar Cozies (yaaay!!!)

One of the many Handmade Holiday gifts I've been working on is a set of jar cozies for my bestsisterfriend requested.  She said she wants to be able to drink hot drinks out of mason jars, but doesn't want to burn her hands.  So I decided to work up a his & her set :)  And actually documented the process ^.^ Check me out!

My late night idea doodle :)
Cozy makin's
 So I started off with a 2 pint mason jar and using 2 strands together, crocheted a disc to cover the bottom (photo 1).  After the disc was the right size, I started working up the sides of the cozy. I worked the first row into the back loops only to make a distinct edge for the cozy bottom (photos 2 & 3).

This is my first foray into embroidery ^.^ I used the chain stitch and a satin stitch to make the mustache (photos 4-6).  The Hers version will be written in pink yarn.  I'm excited about how the His version came out!  But, I'm going to have to take a break before starting the other one... I'm tired of looking at the brown & cream, lol. 

That's it for this post.  I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgivings and had a good time with family and friends :)
