Think I am really into DIY for my Chinese New Year this year and the 2nd project goes to this cute mug cozy!!

I love mug cozy, it’s SUPER easy to make and yet adds a lot of personal touch to mugs that might look the same everywhere else. I used the same pig paper cut pattern for my DIY Red Packet project with Nana but keep it simple so it can be used all year round!


  1. Cut the felt using the mug cozy template (PDF Template here),
  2. Sew the edges with blanket stitch by hand or sewing machine;
  3. Cut the centre logo on iron-on using Cricut Explorer (SVG File here), you can cut by hand if you don’t have a cutting machine;
  4. Iron the logo on the middle of the mug cozy (I use medium heat for my normal iron);
  5. Sew the back of the mug cozy, add a button to decorate

We made 5 red packets which is good enough for hubby and I to give out to Nana later during Chinese New Year, can’t wait for the next CNY crafting project!!


  • 12 oz/355 ml Starbucks Mug
  • 2mm Felt, Brick Red
  • Iron On, Gold
  • Matching colour Thread
  • Button (optional)


Love the red on red for Chinese New Year, gonna make a few more for friends who love mug cozy too lol!
