I have an interest in many different types of crafts and knitting is just one of them. I learned to knit when I was a young girl and I still enjoy it very much because it’s a way for me to relax and wind down.
Today I’m sharing this little coffee mug cozy that I made. It’s a great little gift idea and perfect for Teacher gifts. Yep! My kids teachers will be getting one! 😉
I found this great design in the Silhouette design store. It is a print & cut design.
I wanted to add some words to the design on the upper & lower portion but realized that there were a lot of ‘sketch’-like marks in the design. So I simply right clicked & ungrouped the design and then removed the lines that I didn’t want. (you can see the difference in the picture below. The design on the left is the original.)
I then created a text box and inserted the words “mug hug” onto the upper portion of the design. I also added a design (‘handmade with love’) at the bottom of the design.
After creating the registration marks I printed out the designs. I then went into the Offset window and created an outline image fairly close to the edge of the design. I made sure to click on the main design and chose NO CUT (because I only wanted to cut out the outline shape). I then sent it through my Silhouette to cut out.
