Chevron Koozies

My cousin Amber is the matron-of-honor in my wedding.  She planned a beautiful wedding shower for me that happened yesterday.  To thank her, I made her two chevron koozies and a wine carrier, which will be blogged about in a future post.  I really love how the koozies turned out!  I put them on pint glasses that will be given as a favor at our second reception.  Scroll down through all the pictures for the pattern.  Also, thanks to my sister Emily for taking pictures yesterday!  (One of these days I’m going to have to post a bunch of her pictures.  She’s really amazing!)
