I think almost anyone would love to keep their drinks as cool as when they took it out of the refrigerator. My personal problem is that I don't like when the outside of my can or bottle is wet. It gets all over my hand and I want to keep them dry while at work...or at play!!! So here is my very FIRST tutorial!
-Turn the cozy right side out.
Time to add the ribbon!
-Sew the ribbon ends together (again I had a ½ in. seam allowance).
-Then I added the second ribbon to the other end of the fabric in the same manner.
I realized after I finished that you could approach this step in two different ways. After doing it the way I did, I realized that it would also work well to treat the ribbon as a bias tape also.
And here is the final result:
Some final notes/thoughts: I think this could definitely use a bit more work...there is definitely a gap at the inside bottom because the material isn't directly connected to the original cozy. I might try this again and forgo the original cozy altogether and use a different insulating fabric or I would just make the cozy shorter so the bottom could be sewn directly to the original cozy. I forsee a lot of gifts for friends and family with their favorite team/theme with a coordinating fabric in the future!
