Coffee Mug Cozy Pattern and Homemade Kahlua

What to do with leftover fabric scraps? Make them into cute coffee mug cozies of course!  I tailored this pattern to fit a regular sized coffee mug. Most of the patterns I see on the web usually are made for paper coffee cups.

Today I have stumbled upon this awesome homemade kahlua (coffee liqueur) recipe from Veronica's Cornucopia. I love kahlua so this is heaven sent! As soon as I gather my ingredients I'll give this recipe a shot. I also hope that someone soon can invent and share a recipe for Homemade Bailey's.

  2. Wow, your post worked like magic to get the recipe you wanted! ;)
    But I am writing to say just how very cute it is that the little bear is drinking from the cup in the photo, and the fabric with the bunny in the teapot. It's such a kawaii post, I was moved to post a little smiley face for it in response:
