Available since June 2015, this adorable fox mug cozy was one of my first cozy designs… and probably the one I’ve made the most over the years!
Did you crochet your little fox already? I’m contemplating the idea of putting together an E-book with all my current mug cozy patterns… as well as a few more that I kept as exclusives designs for ready-to-ship items back when I was active on Etsy… So, what do you think? Leave a comment about it!
