Coffee Cup Sleeve by Wendy Cotterill

A red paper coffee cup, decorated with a yellow band of Evolon Soft with parallet lines of machine stitching running from top to bottom and decorated with reddish flowers made out of Zeelon Heavy with tiny yellow beads in their centres.

So pretty, yet so practical!

Many coffee shops wrap paper coffee cups with a sleeve to prevent burning your hand, so open out one of these sleeves to use as a template and cut two pieces of Evolon Soft, allowing a 1cm seam allowance all round.

Stitch the two pieces together leaving a gap and turn it inside out. Press to complete and machine stitch parallel lines with normal sewing thread.

Create either a button and buttonhole to join the two ends, or better still, use some hook and loop (Velcro) tape or pads.

This sleeve has been decorated with flowers made out of Zeelon Heavy, which have been  painted and then cut out using a soldering iron. The flowers have then been attached using small beads and French knots.
