Do you have an event or celebration coming your way?

Mother’s day, father’s day, friendship day, graduation day etc, and you have no idea what gift shoud you have to celebrate it.

As a handmade lover I would suggest you to make a handmade gifts.

Only if you’re ready to put much work on it. It’s not difficult just read the instruction carefully and prepare the materials you will need.

Take a note on which part is confusing to you and ask me by leaving a comment below this post.

This time I’m going to show you how to make a crochet mug cozy with flower as a handmade gift.

You can include the exact mug when you make this project as a present, instead of they look for it by themselves the perfect mug size which fits the mug cozy. It will be nice for them.

The chance they will use it is higher than when you give it as a single gift without the mug itself.

So make sure you choose the best mug you’ve ever seen to give it for your special person 🙂

Okay, so without being said, let’s get started!
