Crochet Easter Celebration Tulip and Cross Coffee Cozies

When my hubs and I were dating, one of our first dates happened on Easter. He had planned to pick me up and go to the Easter service at his church… and what do you think my love showed up with?! Starbucks of course! So I felt it was only right that my free Easter Celebration Pattern be not 1 but 2 fun and festive coffee cozies! Maybe one for you and one for your loved one! :) 

I decided to release this pattern on Good Friday in remembrance of the debt that Christ paid for us. Naturally, that is what the cross in the cozy represents. I’ve also added some springtime tulips, cuz they’re my favorite flower. Interestingly enough, the tulip represents love, and the purple tulip represents royal love... so I felt that these gorgeous purple tulips would be perfect for celebrating Easter! :) 


Hope you enjoy!
