    I recently switched my schedule to work 4 10 hour days a week. This gives me Mondays off. So yesterday I sewed for hours and hours making coffee cozy's using a free pattern I'd gotten online. I made 15 of them for co-workers who go to Caribu Coffee almost daily. I thought they'd make great Christmas gifts! When I came in today, one of the Managers gave everyone a 'store bought' coffee cozy from Caribu with a 'Happy Thanksgiving' card. UGH! Okay, just had to vent....

    I would still give yours as gifts! They can give the store bought one away, and keep yours :D:D:D

    That stinks but I would still use them as prsents! Home made is always better.

    I would give them anyway-it shows you were thinking of them. Also, when one gets dirty they can use the other one. Always good to have a spare!
