crocheted urn cozies


 Crochet Owl Cozy by A and B Design Studio

I occasionally browse tea cozies for designs that could also function as urn cozies. Whether your beloved's ashes are still in the plastic box the funeral home gives you or already in an urn, I truly believe that knit or crochet cozies "warm" them up and make them approachable. I have my mother's ashes covered in a cozy on my bookshelf, and they delightfully blend in with my vintage books. The knit cozy feels warm, comfortable and completely at home here.

 A and B Design Studio has several crocheted items that could work as cozies. I especially love these owls:



They come in several colors, but I especially like the neutrals. Check out this off white guy:



A and B Designs also makes crocheted box designs like this one:



And just to keep your loved ones' ashes company, a crocheted bird (or two or three) would do the job!



Always make sure you have the correct measurements before ordering. The standard urn box is usually around 9"x7"x4".  And I have to confess ... almost all of the Etsy items I find for potential urn cozies are not intended as urns. But I've found that everyone's been completely sympathetic with what might seem to be an unusual request. If you're looking for something like this, I recommend browsing tea cozies or crocheted containers - there's bound to be something perfect for you.
