French Press Cozy


My sweet sisters gave me a french press for Christmas, and I have completely been enjoying drinking my coffee from it. I am, however, a slow coffee drinker, and the coffee in the press would usually be cold by the time I came back for my second cup. So… daa ta daa… I must make a cozy! I was a little bit silly-excited about making this. I just used yarn I had leftover from a sweater I made for Levi and crocheted my way to a little cozy.

My two favorite parts of this cozy (besides the hot coffee) are the embroidery and the buttons. The embroidery says Eucharisteo which means “Give thanks!” I figured I could use a reminder each morning as I pour my coffee that my Father lavishes good gifts on me and my proper response is thanksgiving. This is a theme in my new favorite book, and I’m trying to really be conscious of all the good gifts God gives each moment. I like the buttons because they belonged to my great-grandmother, and even though I never really knew her, I think it’s neat that I get to use something that was hers. So there ya go, a reminder to set my heart on God, using leftover yarn and antique buttons, and hot coffee in the morning all in one quick, little cozy.


About Rachel

Most importantly, I am saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more than enough to satisfy my heart. In His abundant goodness, I am also delighted to be a wife and mama. I work at home and enjoy spending most of my time caring for my husband, 2 sons and new daughter. I also try to squeeze in some creativity, coffee, chocolate, and good books.

  2. Oma, thanks for your always encouraging comments! The flowers are dianthus, I’ve also seen them in a pretty red and white striped flower.
