I am Getting Cozy with Mason.....

Mason "jar" that is.............
I have had so many beautiful people ask me how I made my mason jar w/ a straw lid. And y'all loved the cozy :)
So, I thought I would share how I do it.
(Little giveaway at the bottom of this post)

First for the cozy.............
You will need some 3 inch quilt blocks, 
or just a 3 inch square. 
Also some knit fabric scraps or old tee shirts.

I made some 3 inch blocks.........

I added a 1 3/4" x 3" inch pieces of knit to the top 
and bottom of the block.....

The I attached a 6 x 7 inch piece of knit one side of the block.
(this is when my camera died ...oooops)

Once that is done. Fold in half , with the right sides of the longest edges together. Sew . Then turn inside out. Fit it around your jar. Sew a seam right sides together, so that the cozy fits the jar and slides on like a sock.

Speaking of socks. My kids use socks with the foot cut off.... on there water bottles at school. No water rings on there desk or work.

 There you have it way to make a cozy.

Now, for the Straw lid.

I am going to punch a hole on my lid....
and put a grommet in it. 
I am using my old snap press( from my diaper sewing days) and some grommets I found here.
If you go to your local home improvement store..... They can hook you up with a whole kit.

I have this cool little scrapbook tool kit. It has a strong hole punch and little hammer to whack it with. Perfect for metal lids.....

Make sure you have a wooden surface you dont care about. It is going to get damaged.

It is pretty simple. Whack a hole the size of the grommet in the lid.  Remove any sharp edges from the hole. And tamp down edges on the bottom of the lid, you might leave some by making tho hole.

Line up the hole and the grommet. 
Then press. Perfect straw hole.

What the back looks like.......

What the front looks like..........

Straw fits!!!

 Put it all together now.......

I found these little red lids years ago. I still had a sealed box in my pantry :)..... there so cute.

Can you see the damage to my board.... I guess I hit it hard

By the time I was done, camera was charged......
So, we went for a photo shoot.

4 little cozies..........

Bonus Cozy.....

Pinwheel cozy.........

Shirt sleeve cozy (I used a little stained shirt's sleeve).

Owl Block Cozy........

  32. Love your cozy!! How did you do the one that is part of a sleeve???? Now off to follow you on facebook and pinterest!

  33. I agree with you. I am in LOVE with the Berry Breezer at Starbucks but if I couldn't have that in my mason jar my 2nd choice would have to be Iced coffee with sugar free torani caramel or coconut syrup (depending on my mood, depends on my flavor of choice)with a little milk. Good thing torani makes lots of flavors to fit the mood... LOL

  34. Oh my goodness! These jars are awesome!! Thank you so much for sharing how you made these :) Very cool and even cooler still to drink some sweet tea from one of these jars ;) The cozies are adorable.

I am leaving a new follower of your fantastic blog! Thank you :)

  35. Oh, I would be drinking either iced coffee or iced tea. Yum! Thanks for the tutorial, and here's hoping I win! Mason jars are my favorite, not in small part due to the fact that Mason is my mom's maiden name and the name of my nephew...

  36. I'm a total starbucks junkie - bf even brought me some iced coffee this morning when i had to be into work early! Love the idea, it would be perfect for any drink... even if you had to travel, pop on a non-straw accepting lid and you have an iced coffee in the fridge at work, or in the cooler for at a game...

  37. I would definitely drink a homemade pumpkin spice frappucinno in it as well as some diet green tea!

  38. Definitely a pumpkin spice iced coffee and maybe some diet green tea! Thanks for the straw lid and cozy tutes. I will definitely be making these soon.

  39. Sweet Tea, as the South intended! I'd love this, I had mason jars at my wedding as vases AND as drinking glasses/favors!
