A quick post ... in the spirit of full disclosure.
Karen asked where I got the pattern for this candle cozy ....
There isn't one. There are several patterns and tutorials out there for cup cozies. I just sort of improvised a cup cozy for a candle. Measure around the candle jar (and add 2"). Meaure the height (keep it below the jar edge - you don't want the cozy to catch on fire!). After you measure (and add 2" for overlap) add in your seam allowance ... I used 1/4" ... and there you go. That rectangle measurement IS your pattern. I used a hair tie to stretch across the button for a snug fit.
Here's a pile of scraps left from the scraps that I used to make my candle cozy and my mug rugs.
These scraps were leftovers from a shop sample made 2 years ago ... you've heard me say it before - I do NOT throw stuff away! So - I've made a candle cozy and 4 mug rugs and I still have pieces left ... stay tuned, I'm sure there will be at one more thing made from these.
