Crochet seemed to be the most common technique to make an acceptable cozy when I was a kid. I've seen parasoled ladies hiding extra rolls of toilet paper under their skirts, floral fantasias enrobing boxes of tissue and grannies covering up kitchen utensils in their backsides.
That's why I had to pick up this little number last year at the Los Angeles County Fair. It looks like a little girl's dress, but no! It's a blender cozy, with a tiny pocket in front for I can only imagine what. Maybe a miniature spatula or measuring spoons?
Hope you mix up something nice for this last holiday weekend of Summer.
