The Cutest Mason Jar Mug Cozies + a Giveaway

Recently, we discovered these absolutely adorable Mason jar cozies. We shared these creativeMason Jar Cozies cozies with our fellow Mason jar fans, and just like us, they loved them! We decided that we needed to put our heads together with the genius behind these little beauties, and that’s how we met Jamie, from Crochet Dynamite. We discovered Jamie’s love for our Mason jar mugs and she quickly teamed up with us to design a cozy that would fit the mugs. We are pleased to host Jamie as a guest blogger and to give away her cozies to a couple lucky readers!

Hi!  I’m Jaime from CrochetDynamite.com where I post free crochet patterns and blog about my life.  When I got an opportunity to do a guest post for Fillmore Container, I jumped at the chance (since anyone who reads my blog knows how much I love Mason jars)!!

I also love tea.  In fact, I have an entire cupboard in the kitchen devoted to all of my boxes of tea.  Earl Grey and Lady Grey are there, hanging out with the Chai Spice and Vanilla Black teas.  The Lipton box never actually made it to the cupboard when I brought it home with the Oolong and White Green teas, and instead sits on the kitchen counter in a place of prominence.

I’ve been using Fillmore Container’s Mason Jar Mugs for my morning tea, and I couldn’t be happier! The mugs are microwave safe, and the handle keeps me from burning my fingers carrying the hot tea around.  The only problem that I had was that I kept mixing up which jar was mine, and which jar belonged to my husband!

Making crocheted cozies for the jars was the perfect solution!  Now I can easily tell which one is mine, and because my cozy design has a bottom, I don’t have to find a coaster before I can set it down.  Now my morning tea is perfect!His & Her Mason Mug Cozies

There are lots of ways to customize these Mason Jar Mug Cozies, you can alternate colors and make a fun striped cozy! Accent it with fun buttons for extra flair! The cozies, along with a set of mugs and your favorite tea would make a perfect hostess gift!

    Iced coffee is what I usually drink in a large jar or mug. Glass just makes it colder and better.

    I drink ice cold water, sometimes with lemon, with a stainless steel straw. A cozy would be nice. I usually carry a coaster or dish cloth to avoid water stains on wood. :)

    Are some of the colors shown using two threads of different colors, and if so, would that change the directions at all?

      Hi Heidi! I made the pink and red striped cozy using the exact pattern that I posted, except I alternated the color each row. It didn’t change the pattern at all, it just took a lot longer! LOL!!!
      Hope that helps!

    Iced tea! Lately I have been mixing looseleaf green tea, mint leaves, and rose buds. A splash of coconut milk turns this tea tropical.
