If you're anything like a few of us in The Pantry, you love a good coffee!  Sadly, for me the days of receiving a lovely flat white in a ceramic cup or mug are but a distant memory, living as I do now, in this part of the world (in fact even after looking all over Manhattan, I still haven't managed to find those giant cups Rachel used to serve at The Central Perk?!).  Instead, I am served up my brew in a thin paper cup and, if I am lucky, also receive a (recycled) cardboard holder.
When I saw these sweet felt cup cosies on The Purl Bee's fabulous site, I was instantly sold - and keen to source some colourful felt to start sewing some!   They would make a perfect hostess or teacher gift, perhaps with a gift voucher to your favourite coffee house.  The tutorial is wonderful - and they have plenty of other fantastic, crafty ideas on the site.  Even for a novice like myself, they do look sew easy!!

We recently came across this very clever idea for inside a kitchen cupboard - a great way to utilise space in smaller kitchens too!  They created a vinyl transfer with common cooking measurement conversions as well as a holder for all your measuring spoons.  From Infarrantly Creative, with transfers available from their friends at Say It On The Wall.
