Since the weather outside has been really freezing this last month, I decided to share with you a tutorial for making your own reusable coffe cozies. These not only look totally cute, but they also protect you from burning your hands when holding your morning cup of coffe and they help keeping your beverage longer warm. An allround talent
So this is what you’ll need:
I used two fabrics, one for the outside and another for the inside. But you could of course use a single fabric for everything. You can find a template on the internet (for example here) or you could grab a cardboard one the next time you buy your coffee. You will also need a button and some elastic tape if you’re going to make an adjustabla coffee sleeve.
Now comes the somehow tricky part: figuring out how to stitch them together. I did some trial-and-error here, but i the end I got it:
Before you stitch, take an elastic band, make a loop and place it between the two fabric sheets swith the loop inwards (inside) and the knot outside the fabric sandwich. This will be part of our adjustable fastening mechanism.
