  • Squares of felt in different colors
  • Embroidery floss and needle
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Paper, pen, and ruler
  • A beer bottle or soda can for size

For a standard-sized beer or soda can, you will need to sketch out two pattern pieces using your pen, paper, and ruler. You’ll need a rectangle measuring 9 inches long by 4 3/4 inches high. You’ll also need a circle (for the bottom of the koozie) with a diameter of 2 7/8 inches. You can create a template for the circle by tracing a can and then measuring and adjusting as needed.

To sew the koozie, fold the rectangle in half and thread your needle with a contrasting color of embroidery floss. Using a blanket stitch or a simple whip stitch, sew the rectangle together with the seam facing out.

Next, you’ll sew on the circle to create a bottom for your coozie. Pin the circle around the edge of the bottom of the tube you just created by sewing the rectangle together. Using the same stitch, stitch the circle on.

To create this cute folk art heart decoration, you’ll need to cut out two hearts – one slightly smaller than the other – and four teardrop shapes.

Next, dab craft glue on the back of each shape and press it into place on the koozie. Let dry.

This fun decoration takes advantage of white space to create the illusion of a striped candy cane. First, trace and cut out a candy cane shape in white felt.
