so, i'm a big ol' science nerd.

that's the chemical structure for caffeine, backstitched onto felt and then backed onto a another layer of felt, and sewn up along one side to make a mug hug

the hug also shows the formula and the word 'caffeine', just to be sure everyone knows what drug we're on Smiley
I usually use waste fabric when I do stuff like this but I didn't have any to hand for this project, still I think it came out looking ok, still reasonably neat
oh - I realise that in the picture it's on a Thermos, and a Thermos has no need for hugs as it has inbuilt insulation. But it was the best I could do for illustrative purposes and I though the Thermos might want a hug anyway - just because a hug is not needed does not mean it goes unappreciated.

a really quick make for my friends birthday, took about an hour and he was really please with it (or he's a good actor...)

I want to do something similar but reversible, with caffeine on one side and alcohol on the other, only I can't think what kind of container it should go around? any ideas?

YESSSSS!!!! In first year chemistry I embroidered exactly that on my lab coat!!!!! Everyone else had plain white lab coats, and I had an awesome one.

Your use of caffeine embroidery is just as awesome as my lab coat Wink I love it when science and crafting mix! Maybe I'll make one for myself and I can drink coffee with my caffeinated mug-hug while wearing my lab coat. Ohh yeahhh.

As for a reversible one with alcohol, I love the idea but there's a problem - when drinking irish coffee which side would you use?

This is awesome!  The red and grey look great together and you have your molecules down to an art. Smiley

I love me some chemistry and have a plain lab coat right now.  Embroidering organic molecules will be my next project, I think.
