I decided to try my hand at the coffee cup sleeves that I've seen on here recently. I actually wanted to make one for a gift but this was my practice sleeve. The stitching is a little wonky since this is the first thing I've made since 6th grade home ec. so be kind!! I hope you like.


The front


the back


Laid out flat

I got the tutorial for the blanket stitch from the FutureGirl blog.

cute! I love it. I also want to make some felt ones, though the only ones I've made so far (also for gifts) were knit with sock yarn (coffee cuff on ravelry).
I love it! So very green...  Smiley

Me, too.  I think you did a great job, for being out of practice.

Thank you for all the awesome comments! I'm very proud of my first creation  Grin

I don't drink coffee either, I'm a hot chocolate girl, but 'hot chocolate sleeve' didn't sound right  Wink

That would make a rockin' bracelette too! Nice job.
I didn't even think of that! What a great idea!

I was thinking of making these too!  Yours looks great! 

I was puzzling over closures - is there a reason for the button low on the cuff and not in the middle or the top?  Or for just one button and not two?

I love this! I've seen a few versions of these (including silicon ones in stores, which I'm against!) and I love it. I'm currently planning an "eco purse" and it's going to be equipped with great little 'gadgets' like this! Nice job, it looks great!

ooh what a great idea! folded up reusable shopping bag, cup cuffs, maybe a hankerchief, one of those die hard water bottles - not flimsy wasteful plastic ones from the grocery store.....mmm


as for the cup-cuff, it's adorable! i'd never had guessed it;s been so long since you had crafted. does the felt insulate well? i always wondered what's the warmest craftable material would for those. and non-coffee drinkers like myself, you cant beat some peppermint hot cocoa in the snow, hot cider, or a soothing decaf tea!
