With that over with, on to it.
Step 1: Gather up your supplies.
- Fabric (I picked mine up at JoAnn’s over black friday and got it for $1.50 a yard. I love it!)
- Interfacing (I’m using Pellon 808 Craft Fuse- great for heavy duty stuff)
- Rotary Cutter and Mat
- Sewing Machine (if you’ve got it) or Needle and thread.
- cardboard coffee cup sleeve from Starbucks-like you needed a reason to grab a peppermint mocha.
Step 7: If you have a sewing machine, head over to it otherwise grab your needle and thread and sew a tight stitch along the top and bottom of your inside out pieces. No pictures of this process since my sewing station is an ABSOLUTE wreck! I’m waiting for the nesting or spring cleaning urge to kick in so I can tackle that project.
The felt shouldn’t fill the sleeves completely from end to end, there should still be about a ¼” on either end. Again, this will be where you hem. Once your felt in in place inside your sleeves, iron flat.Step 9: Head back to your sewing machine and with your two pieces lined up, sew down the sides of your sleeves. You’ll still see a rough edge, so flip this whole pieces inside out.
This makes a great gift for the coffee lover in your life. Fill it with gift cards and it make a great gift for ANYONE in your life. If you haven’t already, be sure to enter to win today’s DIY, especially since it comes with a $5 Starbucks gift card!
