I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “Who needs a lip balm cozy?”
Well, the answer might be you. Especially if you lose yours on as regular a basis as I do.
In any case, I didn’t make these intending to keep them. I made them as gifts, and since the recipients were all fans of Disney parks, having easy access to lip balm is a great idea. Which is why I put them all on carabiners so they could clip onto belts, bags, you name it.
I thought they were a really cute idea, and the pattern was available free! (Even better.) They crocheted up really quickly, and the pattern was super easy to memorize. Also, I suppose you could modify them if you wanted to, but I found that just using different crochet thread was sufficient to keep me interested while making them.
