Print Print    Email This Tip Email

When cold weather hits, there’s nothing like snuggling up to a toasty hot water bottle. Here are a bunch of patterns and tutorials for making covers and cozies for them so they’re even more snuggle-friendly. These are mainly knit and sewing but I found a couple nice crochet ones too. Enjoy!
