I love making handmade gifts and my thoughts are beginning to turn to the gifts I want to make and give this Christmas. Handmade gifts are always well received and our DIY mug warmer will be enjoyed by those who love their tea and coffee! I used a sweet Baby Yoda fabric for my little Star Wars fan but this would look great in many fabrics.
Baby Yoda Mug Warmer equipment list:
1 yard of Baby Yoda fabric
1 yard of Wrap N Zap (or alternative thick cotton batting)
2 large buttons
Matching thread (I used white)
How to make a DIY Baby Yoda Mug Warmer:
First find the length of the fabric you need by measuring the distance around the mug.
Add an extra 1/2″ for a seam. Measure the height of the mug and make it a little less on the top and the bottom. Add an extra 1/2″ for a seam. Once you have the template created, cut out one piece of wrap n zap and two pieces of fabric.
Using a sewing machine sew a seam all around the edges, going over the elastic ends several times. Make sure to leave an opening about 5 cms open on one side.
Turn the mug warmer right side out and gently push the corners out if needed.
Turn the edges of the fabric on the open side under and pin in place. Top stitch around the cozy including the opening.
Hand sew a large button on the opposite side of the short end to complete your Baby Yoda mug warmer.
I think this would make a lovely handmade gift to give. You can personalise it by choosing a fabric which your recipient would love to use.
