Orange, Number Two - Coffee Press Cozy


I got this idea from craftlog a couple of years ago - very necessary if you drink your coffee slowly (as it seems I do). I used an old white towel on the inside, with one one layer of quilt batting in between to add a little extra insulation. We have six colors of fiesta ware, and this orange will help bring out my often-ignored-persimmon dishes.

The curtains are "thermal curtains," which means they have a rubber backing on them. That comes in handy here. Mostly, I've been ignoring that while making my list of things to make from the orange fabric, but I'd like to take advantage of the rubber side, too. Any suggestions?

p.s. check out my cool flickr badge on the left, that will take you to all the pictures of orange things as I make them.

Is it the kind of rubber you could use for the soles of some house slippers? Or a toy seal...
