Teal Friday

traffic lights galore

Pink Fridays begin next week, and this is the final Teal Friday of the year. For this project, I used colors representing cancer awareness (yellow), ovarian cancer awareness (teal) and breast cancer awareness (pink).

You may do whatever you'd like with lip gloss cozies and key chains you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!

Finish: Stiffen all pieces if desired. (I stiffened the lights and cozy lid only, and I used full strength water soluble school glue.) Finger shape lights to form hoods. If stiffening parts, allow to dry thoroughly. Apply glue to backs of lights and position on cozy. Allow to dry thoroughly. Attach lanyard hook to cozy just below lid joint. Insert lip gloss, and proudly show your Stop Cancer spirit!

  1. Oh my goodness, at first I thought it was a cover made especially for the traffic light! Wouldn't that be super cool to come up to a traffic stop and see one wearing such a cool fashion!

  2. This is the cutest thing ever! We found out last June how important lip balm is to Coloradans - Philip and Nikki even included some in their wedding goody bags.

    The yarn bombing idea above is a very good one. Might take a bit more yarn though....

    P.S. These would make adorable tree ornaments.
