CHRISTMAS IN JULY - Hot water bottle cozy from a sweater

Now you probably need to know that I live in Minnesota. And while currently we have had some hot hot weather, I do know that the winter weather will be back....with a vengeance. In about 3.5 months, so will the sub-zero freeeze and the snow and the cold hands and snuffly noses and the chilly feet trying to warm up after snow-boots. This is why THIS idea is so darn great. And heck, I can pick out 3 sweaters right now from my husband or my son's closets that will up-cycle into hot water bottle covers just fine!!

Here is how you go about it.

Even if you live in Cali or Florida or Texas or Arizona, this would be a great item to snuggle up with when you feel chilled. Make one for an elderly relative or anyone who is prone to a back ache or a charlie horse. Make a few for your friends. Again it would be a great guy gift for the man who THINKS he has everything!
