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 needs one for her birthday!”
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!
