Adorably Tiny Hand-Knitted Sweaters Outfit Everyday Coffee Mugs

Coffee mugs get cold, too. So, to remedy this, an Etsy shop aptly-called Mug Sweater crafts tiny, hand-knitted garments for your dishware. The adorable creations are miniaturized sweaters, and they come complete with poseable arms wearing mittens. It's a great way to add some whimsy to an everyday object – the cups seem to come to life!

Mug Sweater has different color combinations to choose from, and they even have adorable patterns that include little hearts, polka dots, and stripes. Additionally, you can order a “Kangaroo Mug,” which has a front-facing pouch that includes a hand-cut baby kangaroo card. This seems like a sweet gift for someone who's expecting.

If you're already familiar with knitting, Mug Sweater also has a DIY option in their shop. Purchase the pattern to use your own yarns and colors. It's considered easy to do and great for knitting beginners. You can see even more on Etsy.
