My HWB Cozy

I made this yesterday. I started one a couple days ago, but it wasn't working, so I ripped it all out yesterday and started over. This came together much quicker and easier. Took me a few hours, altogether. I didn't use a pattern, just made a giant rectangle and folded it in half, sewed up the sides, and attached the buttons. I'd like to get the shipment off to Nepal within about a week or so. The HWB's should be coming in the next couple days.

  1. That looks great. Elizabeth gave me your address, I will be mailing you a check tomorrow to purchase 4 hot water bottles.

    This is a fantastic project...

    Have a great day!


  2. Thank you so much Angie! That is so generous!

  3. So, I was wondering...does your brother have any female friends? My reason for the question is because I have a bunch of girly colored chunky yarn. I was thinking that maybe I could whip up a couple of the cozies quick with some chunky yarn and large knitting needles...but I didn't want some poor guy to get stuck with a pink cozy. I know beggars can't be choosy, but still. Haha, I'm sure I sound petty, and I really don't mean to. I guess I'm just trying to be over-accomodating? Anyway, I was just wondering. :)

  4. Hi Kristen,
    yes, he does have female friends! Those who work with him, as well as the Nepali women he is serving. Thank you! It's so exciting that people I don't even know want to participate in this gift.
