  1. Hi Tammy, I contacted Mistie who organized the CAL and she is searching for her missing post! I hope to have the link to you soon!

  2. Rhonda, thank you! I appreciate your research and help, my sisters will too when they receive their cozy with various embellishments.

  3. Hi Wendy, I hand stitched it on the cup cozy just like if I were to attach an embellishment to a hat. Working around the posts of the stitches in the same color yarn as the embellishment. For a removeable one – all I can think of is using multiple small pieces of yarn – weaving it through the back edges near the corners of the embellishment and then tying it in a simple knot on the inside of the embellishment. Then you can snip those to remove it; or simply untie them. This is what I do for my hats – to allow me to switch the embellishments on some of them. Or you could use snaps – but if you use snaps you would not be able to use the cozy without an embellishment. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  4. This chart does not tell how to attach the embellishment. Could you share a way to make it removable? I am thinking of making different ones, for example a heart for Valentines’s day, that could be added and removed easily to change – maybe a small safety pin?

  5. I love this!! A sweet and simple festive project!!! Thank you so much!

  6. I know you’re busy but could you possibly do a tutorial on the leaf.
    For some reason I can’t get it.
