When in doubt, put a bow on it!

There's something about little bows that makes things look so much more... What's that word I'm looking for... Tolerable? Got a crappy present? Put a bow on it and it suddenly becomes super cute!

I love Kate Spade accessories, but I don't own any. At least not at the time I'm writing this. Kate Spade seems to put bows on a lot of things: their handbags, wallets, shoes, bracelets, etc. You name an item that Kate Spade makes, they've probably made a version with a bow on it.

I learned this bow stitch from MyPicot. I decided to make an item that one would use every day and came up with a coffee cup cozy. I went to university without needing to rely on coffee. In fact, even after starting working as a nurse and doing shift work I never felt the need to have coffee be my source my energy. However, I suddenly turned into a coffee addict shortly after becoming a mother.

Handmade coffee cozies may not keep your coffee warm, but it will help prevent your hands from burning! Plus, they are reusable and also make great gifts! Check out these Crochet Heart Coffee Cozies I made as Christmas presents for BB's daycare teachers!

The name Spades and Bows was inspired by my admiration for Kate Spade New York accessories. If you are interested in making your own Spades and Bows Crochet Coffee Cozy, keep reading.
