Step 2

For method #1: quick 10 minute coffee cozy, fold a small piece of elastic and pin it in, then place the fleece right on top of it with their right side faicng each other, pin it in place to secure, then sew it around leaving an opening to turn it right side out. Once done sewing, turn it right side out, then tuck and fold in the opening and pin it closed. Go around the entire rectangle with a top stitch and sew on the button. For method #2: reversible coffee cozy with elastic closure, place both fabrics with their right sides together, then place the fleece on top, sew around and leave 1 short side open. Pull it right side out, then fold and tuck the end. Insert a folded piece of elastic, pin in place and sew accross. Hand sew 2 buttons on each side of the fabric.
