  1. For the exterior of the koozie, cut a section from the fat quarter that measures 8.5” x 11” and a section from the stabilizer the same size.

  2. Fuse a piece the stabilizer to the wrong side of the exterior section.

  3. On the outside of the front section, draw diagonal lines 1-inch apart using the Frixion marking pen.

  4. Rotate the section and repeat, drawing placing lines in the opposite diagonal direction.

    1. Note: The marks will disappear when you press with a hot iron.

  5. Set up the machine for sewing. Select the desired decorative stitch. Thread the machine and wind a bobbin.

  6. Using the placement lines as your guide, stitch over each of the lines.

  7. Using the attached Koozie Template, cut out two sections from the fat quarter fabric: one from the quilted fabric and one from an unstitched section.

    1. Note: if your glass is larger or smaller adjust the size of the template as needed)

  8. With right sides together, sew the sections together around the outer edge leaving a 3-inch opening for turning. Trim the corners.

  9. Turn right side out and press. Be sure to turn in the seam allowance for the 3-inch opening.

  10. Top-stitch 1/8-inch from the edge around the entire koozie. This will secure the opening.

  11. Place the template over the sewn koozie section and place four marks on each open side to establish the placement of the eyelets.

  12. Tip: Use the directions found on the template for sewing and placement of the eyelets.

  13. Use the eyelet pliers to punch the eyelets in place.

  14. Cut a section of ribbon approximately 24 inches long.

  15. Thread the ribbon through the eyelets on the koozie. Place the koozie around the glass. Tighten the ribbons and tie a bow. Trim the ribbon to finish.
