So I'm on a coffee cozy kick as I build up inventory for a craft fair. I love coffee cozies, because the "canvas" is quick to whip up (unlike a blanket or even a hat) and then you can add all kinds of fun detail which appeals to my right brain.
In the midst of sharing my various coffee cozy creations, I had a request for a VW Bug cozy from a friend who is a VW Bug enthusiast. Being somewhat of a fan myself (my favorite car in the world was my baby blue 69 Beetle, may she RIP after I blew out her engine trying to drive her from CA to GA...*sniff*) I had to pick up the gauntlet.
But alas, it looked so much better in my mind. I can see that it looks vaguely car shaped. But Beetle-esque? I went with the convertable to work around the idea that, by design, a coffee cozy cannot have a domed top. The headlights and front bumper look crammed together and I cant quite get that rounded front end I was looking for.
I may try again, after the craft fair. Or I may skip the coffee cozy challenge, and make a straight up plushie.
Unless my dear readers have any ideas to make it more Bug-shaped?
