I came upon this pattern one day while checking out Crochet Pattern Central - it's a cute coffee cup cozy. My grandsons like the TMNT's (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) so I thought of them when I first saw it. The only thing, of course, is that they don't drink coffee - so I crocheted a bottle cozy. This is the purple one - I think it's Leonardo - he's for James. I am almost finished with the orange one - Michaelangelo - he's for William. :)
