French Press gets Cozy

Once you go French you never go back... French press, that is.  I am so in love with my French press.  Many of my overnight guests fall in love with my French Press, too.  Why wouldn't they?

One person I know in particular needs a French press.  It's my sister-in-law, Angie.  Since she makes a single cup of coffee everyday, she opts for the convenience of instant coffee rather than making a whole pot.  Poor thing.  Don't you think she's deserving of good coffee?  Well, I do.  So she's getting a French press.  With it's own accessory.  Naturally every inanimate object needs accessories.

All I did to create this awesome cozy was make a chain equal to about 3/4 of the press' circumference.  Then I single crocheted into it to create a rectangle in the height I desired.  For the thin end, I single crocheted into the vertical side and decreased until I was happy with the "fastening strap" and added a button hole by adding a few extra chains to the end.  Then I sewed on a button.  Easy peasy, right?  I realize that these are not detailed instructions, but if you can crochet, you can figure it out.  If I can, you can.  There's no right or wrong.

I thought that a nice handmade cozy added just the right homemade touch.  Not every gift can be fully handmade, but I do have a reputation to uphold as a crafty girl, right?

There's nothing like a great cup of coffee... or a great faithful friend who loves being with you, regardless of what weird task you're doing.  Man I love my little doggie!
