Last minute gift idea that actually seemed really simple but after making four crazy messed up ones, I scraped the insulated batting idea and went to wool felt instead. It made the entire process come together in seconds.
This one I made with an embroidered initial ribbon I bought here awhile back.
And this one I made with a section of the Tiny Tots + Dots Twill Tape.
I opted for velcro so it fit onto several different size cups. Our two favorite cups, even though I am a tea drinker rather than coffee, is this cup and this cup. Both are ceramic versions of paper cups so they’re hot. Real hot.
I uploaded a pattern here. Click on “download the large size” and print it out. The sleeve pattern didn’t fit on one page so I had to break up the sleeve into two pieces on the pattern. So just cut out the paper pattern pieces and tape them together then cut out two pieces from wool felt. The pattern indicates where to sew on your velcro pieces. Place on top of each other and topstitch 1/8″ from edge and you’re done!
