poshta design - homespun holiday: cozy cocoa kit


Hey, everyone! I am so excited to share the newest stitching kit and products that are coming soon to Poshta Design! When I saw the new offering that Lizzie designed, I was so excited to get stitching! I have several cute mug ornaments to share with you today.

Here are the details for the newest Homespun Holiday: Cozy Cocoa Kit:

There are few things as warm and comforting during the chilly winter months as a cup of rich hot cocoa. This year's stitching kit features both two and three-dimensional cocoa mugs to keep you creating sweetness all season long! Decorate your mugs with seasonal delights like peppermints and holly, fluffy whipped cream and bugle bead sprinkles. Your decor is about to look good enough to sip! From 100% wool felt to a carefully curated collection of beads and sequins, everything you need to make beautiful ornaments arrives right to your door in one convenient package. The hardest part is choosing your favorite Color Story! This kit even includes needles, cord for hanging, and a zippered project bag so you can keep your works-in-progress safe and tidy. You'll be stitching up deliciously delightful creations in no time!

There are several new color stories to choose from for the kit and I picked the Candy Cane color story to create with:
This Color Story reminds us of sweet peppermint sticks and sprigs of juniper berries. This palette includes Tundra, Red Currant, Petal Dot, Pea Pod, and Lagoon felt. This palette can be dainty or bold depending how you use it and we are loving that versatility!


Right away, I knew that I wanted to to monogram mug ornaments for my girls. I paired the items in the kit with the new Monogram Alphabet dies to personalize my stitched creations!


Tacy's mug ornament is cut out of the blue felt from the Candy Cane color story and I added the snowflake embroidery to it. I used all 6 strands of embroidery thread to stitch the design for a nice full look and then added a few white beads to add extra dimension and shine. 

Isn't the whip cream on top just the cutest? I embellished it with white sequins and beads so it looks like it has a fun sugar sprinkle on it!

(Make sure you add all of your embellishments and embroidery before you stitch your ornaments together!)


I did Hana's ornament from the cute pink polka dot felt and added a green stripe. I love the cute little peppermint and holly leaves that you can stitch up to embellish the mugs and I had to add them to each of the girls ornaments! 


I cut out the monograms and added the stitching details to them before I added them to the ornaments. You can stitch all of the accessories directly to the mugs, or add them with glue too. I used a hot glue gun to add the peppermint candies, holly leaves, and monograms to my ornaments.

I can't wait to give these to my girls. I haven't decided if these would be great to gift when we decorate the tree or I might attach them to their Christmas gifts for Christmas Eve!


The new dimensional cocoa mug is very fun! I cut out the mug from the red felt and added the tree embroidery detail to it. I love the embroidery options in the kit and it was easy to follow Lizzie's instructions to stitch them up. I used 6 strands again here and then added white beads around the design.


There's an option to add marshmallow in your cocoa (so cute!) and I also added a few sequins and beads scattered between them.


I had to add one of the cute peppermints and holly leaves to this mug too! I can't wait to hang this cute cocoa mug on my tree and it would be great to make up a bunch for gifts!
