Coffee Cup Sleeve Tutorial

Tutorials

I was planing on posting this yesterday but got distracted sampling changes to the shorts for the kids pyjama pattern I’m working on (more on that later).

As someone who is used to cardboard coffee cup sleeves I enjoy this more colourful and customizable version better, even if it means trying to remember it when I go out for coffee.

The tutorial is for three different styles of coffee cup sleeves in three difficulty levels: bound edge, easiest; wrap around, medium and plain, hardest. The instructions are presented in order of difficulty.

This project is perfect for using up small scraps of your favourite fabric (only needs two 6″ x 4″ pieces for each layer). It is also quick to make and endlessly customizable. I wanted one with a spot for my stir stick/stopper so I made the Wrap Around version and used elastic for the closure with an extra loop on it and it works great! I also thought it would be nice to have a plain one so I made the Bound Edge version out of black felt and left the edges raw. (see gallery pictures)

I’d love to see what others come up with!
