Cookie Monster Sippy Cozy with Strap {Free Crochet Pattern}

  A couple of weeks ago, in preparation for our youngest's 2nd birthday, I had just finished making a Crochet Olaf from Frozen. No sooner did I finish Olaf, did our 5 year old jump in my face come up to me and insist ask me to make a crochet Cookie Monster for her sister. "
She neeeeds one for her birfday!"
Well, I don't know about you, but for me, when I finally finish an amigurumi project, I like to wait a little while before taking on another. But, come on. How can you argue with such a sweet request?
The answer is: You can't.
I had already planned to make some sort of sippy cozy to control the condensation problem when I stuck a sippy cup in the side of my purse. I also wanted to incorporate a strap similar to the sippy strap I had made before. The only thing I was stuck on, was a design. Well, here it was! Cookie Monster!

  The great thing about this sippy cozy is that it can easily be adapted to any character or design you wish. You can have fun playing with different color combinations, too!

Crochet Olaf From Frozen {Pattern Review}

  Who doesn't love Olaf from Disney's Frozen?
It is pretty safe to say that my 2 year old is obsessed with the fun loving character that she affectionately refers to as "Happy Snowman".

  In preparation for her second birthday, I knew that I needed to make a cute, cuddly, crochet Olaf for her. A quick Google search turned up and awesome pattern by One Dog Woof. This pattern is very well written. It is easy to follow, and includes some great photos! I encourage you to check out some of the other great crochet patterns that One Dog Woof has to offer.

  Olaf took me a few days to make, as I didn't have much time to sit and work on it all the way through.
Here is my finished product:

Olaf, Frozen, Snowman, Crochet Olaf, Crochet. Crochet Frozen, Disney's Frozen

  For my Olaf, I made a couple of small modifications to the original pattern. First, I used 100% cotton yarn. I love cotton yarn, and I try to always use it for amigurumi crochet. I feel that it holds its shape better than an acrylic yarn. It also washes up well... did I mention it is for my 2 year old?

  The second modification I made was the eyes. I didn't have 9mm black safety eyes on hand. I had 12mm brown and black eyes. I used those. Because they are larger, I simply repeated row 19 of the head pattern, to compensate. I made everything else as written. I am very pleased with the result, and I am sure my daughter will love her Happy Snowman!

Happy Crocheting!
