The Mega Man series is known for an item called an "E-Tank" or "E-can" which looks like a soda can and, when used, refills your health meter. This cozy makes any 12 oz canned drink look just like this item and, because it's made with absorbent cotton yarn, keeps your hands dry and your drink cold. It's also very sturdy, so you could put it on your desk and use it to hold pens and pencils, loose change, and other trinkets!
Step 1: Materials
- A size H or larger crochet hook
- Black worsted weight cotton (or acrylic if you can't find black cotton)
- Blue worsted weight cotton (I used Peaches'n'Cream's "Hot Blue")
- One sheet of black felt
- A sewing needle/black thread OR a hot glue gun with glue
Peaches 'n Cream Yarn is anywhere from $1-$3, and most craft stores have 40% off coupons to make this cheaper. You can find single sheets of felt in the craft foam/kids crafts section of most craft store for about 30 cents. If we ignore the one-time cost of a hot glue gun and scissors, assume that a crochet hook is about $4 and that you can make 5 E-tanks from a regular-sized cake of Peaches 'n Cream, the total cost of each cozy is $2!
