These are fun and simple to make!  You can make them as plain or as funky as you'd like.  Not only are they fashionable and trendy, they are eco-friendly since you don't need those ugly cardboard sleeves that the restaurants/coffee shops give you!  Keep them in your purse and wow your friends and even strangers!

OOOH, COOL! Are these just fabric and batting? I would love to make a few for my grandma and mom.

For sure!  These ones that I made have elastic and a big button, so they're totally expandable to different sized cups.

They are eezy breezy to make....just do an online search and you'll find alot of patterns!

Fabric is taking over my house!

You could also use Velcro as a quick and easy way to adjust the size, that way you're not fiddling with a button while angry businessfolk prepare to mob you at Starbucks for taking too long! It would overlap depending on the size of the drink. On the bottom just put a long strip of Velcro horizontally, and then put a short strip vertically on the flap. That way it's adjustable!

I'll also suggest using Insul-Bright instead of regular batting. It's available in the interfacing section of your fabric store. On one side it looks like fleece but the other has a sort of foil layer that reflects the heat (or cold!) back into your drink. It might help keep the heat away from your hand and also keep your drink the right temperature better than batting would!

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I think I might make one for bottles of Pepsi! And sometimes I drink tea or hot chocolate which can be really hot in those flimsy styrofoam cups they always have in offices.
